Event description

Description

One of the most coveted titles within Hip Hop culture is “God MC.” There are few who would dare crown themselves a master of the lyrical gods. I don't recall a woman ever in history speaking such a thing about herself although there are plenty of femme wordsmiths worthy of the title.

I am in love with Hip Hop. Sometimes, I don’t think Hip Hop loves me. The misogyny, hyper-sexualization, and at times erasure of feminine influence on the culture has given me pause on many occasions. The God MC is an exciting partnership with MOCA Jacksonville in collaboration with Jax Poetry Fest that has granted me the platform to pay homage to an art form that has changed the world as well as recognize the women who paved the way for me to speak freely on the deification of feminine energy.

Rochelle Underdue, Mas Appeal, Intricate the Almighty, T.W.A.N, and Nicole "Nico" Holderbaum share the stage with me as we dive into the elements of Hip Hop and assess the major roles women have always played in DJing, MCing, Breakdancing, Grafitti, and most importantly; Knowledge. Please join us in this celebration of National Poetry Month via the herstory of Rhythm And Poetry as told by Ebony Payne-English.
