LADIES OF HIP HOP 2008
If you didn't know, this is the week of the Ladies of HipHop Festival. One of the main events is My Mic Sounds Nice, a hiphop show/party going down this Friday at Fluid. It features two of our favorite mcs Bahamadia and Ethel Cee, who are both going to destroy it without a doubt. Holding it down on the wheels and supporting their respective mcs is Dj Statik and DJ Ultraviolet. Go ladies!
Also, catch DJ Statik this Thursday playing jams for the ladies on the rooftop of the South Street Whole Foods. It's all part of the Fe:male Hip-Hop Dance Battle. Should be dope!
Fe:male Hip-Hop Dance Battle @ Whole Foods Rooftop (10th & South Street). Thursday June 19th. 5:30pm-9:30pm. Free

If you still need to get more hiphop in your life, hit up the Popped Festival Saturday afternoon over on Drexel University’s campus. Ok, we know like 90% of the line up is rock, but they also have Def Jux lyricist Mr. Lif along with our own DJ Statik performing (around 2:40pm). That alone is worth making the trip.
