On August 30th, BET will air its first ever original music documentary special, My Mic Sounds Nice: A Truth About Women In Hip Hop.
Featuring interviews with music executives, journalists and artists (including Missy Elliott, Eve, Trina, Rah Digga, MC Lyte, Yo Yo and Questlove, along with Hip Hop moguls Jermaine Dupri, Russell Simmons and Kevin Liles), the documentary explores “how rap music has affected female MCs of the past and present.”
The BET special examines gender-specific differences in artistry, marketing, promotion and economics and reveals industry truths about Hip Hop and women that many in the community don’t want to address.
“This is a story that could not be told by one voice. It required a chorus. And although this story is comprehensive, it is still likely one of many truths about the role of women in Hip Hop,” says Stephen Hill, President of Music Programming and Specials.
My Mic Sounds Nice: A Truth About Women In Hip Hop premieres on August 30 at 10PM EST on BET.
