Ever since Sha-Rock we (I) have held female emcees to a certain standard. Goddesses, Wisdoms, Earths, Mothers, Daughters, Queens, Princesses, etc. Women are the guards of the porthole into this plain of existence, the keepers of the birth canal, and the physical fragile tenderness which is the first glimpse into the meaning of life itself to a child! The definition demands accountability.
Sisters such as Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Bahamadia, Rah Digga, Lauryn Hill, and few others have made a mark that puts them in a league of their own in the ranks of crowd control, they can hold their own in the realm of a majority of male counterparts. Seldom seen in mainstream rap music are females who represent woman-hood, the art form, and self respect with an even balance! This (Hip-Hop) is different than any other genre of music, it was developed in the street to report the street honestly and is governed by a code of the streets! Key word, Honestly which means from the heart aka truth, un-tainted by the up keeping of an image or the desired to be perceived as “Real” which is generally fake as a 3 dollar bill! There is not a balance amongst male and female in Hip-Hop, the spotlight immediately goes on “Her” when she steps in the arena! A woman in the music industry is the voice of a sex that has been demanding respect from day one and all of her actions echo “yay or nay!”
Today, in tell-lie-vision, movies, radio, and all of media there is more of an outstanding need for Positive Female Role Models than ever before! Sadly shows like “Housewives of ATL, LA, NY, Orange County, Love and Hip-Hop, Basketball wives, etc” are mis-guiding our little girls into thinking that such lifestyles and treatment are proper aspirations! I recently watched Love and Hip-Hop for the first and last time and was sickened by what I saw, women without knowledge of self, a sense of self worth, and searching for stepping stones rather than being stones too strong for anyone to even think of stepping on! This is why we have a Nicki Minaj. On the opposite side of this coin are Jean Grae, Invincible, Apani, AtLas, Eternia, Pri The Honeydark, Helixx, Kalae, Narubi and the many you do not often hear about that spit fire and/or are apart of The HipHopSisters.com Movement! These sisters are not extinct, they do exist! They exemplify emceeing!
The Universal Zulu Nation is the first family of Hip-Hop, our Malikas have a lot to live up to. Miranda Writes is an up and coming emcee from New Jersey with respect for the culture. She is 17 years old, young, working to master her craft, and an up and coming member of The Universal Zulu Nation as well as the C.E.O of LPD Entertainment (which she owns and manages by herself with the support of her family) recording out of FrankenSound Recording & Rehearsal Studios with Tim Flanzbaum. We (The UZN) support her and we expect the carrying on of a legacy in her work! To emcee is more than putting together a story with words that rhyme or getting a reaction, it is an art form, and a constant work to improve on lyricism and a craft. To emcee is to be a Wordsmith. To be a UZN Emcee is an honor! Her newest project is a Mix/CD called:
