As a child of early hip hop, MC Lyte always holds a special place for me. She was a part of the movement of female rappers that helped the world to see that the rap game isn’t just a man’s world. So she has my utmost respect for that alone. Plus she raps flawlessly and is gorgeous so there’s that. And I know the younger rappers like Lil Mama felt the same way as well and were inspired to get in the rap game as well. It seems that BET wants to capitalize on this idea of female rap unity and have created a new reality show called Hip Hop Sisters, according to Eurweb.
HIP HOP SISTERS is a docudrama following the relaunch of six female rappers’ careers. MC Lyte, The Lady of Rage, Yo Yo, Smooth, Monie Love and Lil Mama join forces and declare themselves the Hip Hop Sisters. Their goal is to reclaim their titles as the Queens of Hip Hop — as they manage their drama-filled personal careers and lives and search for the next great female MC.
Now the mix of women they’ve selected is pretty interesting, to say the least. I’m sure it’s going to be quite a lively show, as none of these ladies have a problem with speaking their mind. What do you think? Is this a good move or will it just become another drama-filled reality show?
