Well, you're in luck! Come to the MC Olympics writing and performance workshop Fridays at Rockridge Library with your Master of Ceremony Do D.A.T.
“MC Education For The Ladies” facilitated by Coco Peila Many Hip Hop heads believe there is no such thing as a "female emcee", only an MC who happens to be male or female. However there are, undoubtedly, ladies who can lyrically run circles around any: track, MC (male or female), battle etc. What gives Ms Lauryn Hill & Rapsody their lyrical agility, Nicki & Eve their delivery, Queen Latifah & Medusa their poise, Mystic & Jean Grae their insight, and LadyBug Mecca & MC Lyte their distinguishable voices? In this workshop we explore those questions and more as we sharpen and learn how to wield our rapping skills.
