DOPEfm celebrates International Women’s Day every year by dedicating the entire overnight program to the Women in Hip-Hop. This year marks the third annual special presentation.
For this year’s show I have produced two hours of Know Your History detailing the important moments in female-fronted hip-hop from 1912 all the way up to 2013.
We have a female deejay, L’oqenz, providing us with a dope hour of music and we talk to her about her craft.
I spin an hours worth of music where every single track is by a female emcee.
I also talk to a graduate student about the issues surrounding women in hip-hop culture.
We get everything started at 12:00 midnight and run straight through to 7:00 a.m. Sunday morning.
There are some great voices in hip-hop music and culture. We need to recognize and celebrate them every day, but especially once a year on International Women’s Day.
If you missed the last two years of our special programming, don’t worry. You can download them for free anytime you like.
Please tune in live this Saturday night to hear our third annual Women in Hip-Hop Spectacular.
