'Ladies First' Spotlight: The Founders of Poetry vs. Hip Hop [LISTEN] #LadiesFirst

 

Ladies First is looking for local women who are doing incredible things to empower others or moving the needle in their industry.

 

These two women, fit that criteria!

 

Meet the founders of Poetry vs. Hip-hop in this week’s spotlight: Queen Sheba, and DJ KnoDat.  Their team of women are are re-inventing hip hop battles by bringing together spoken word poetry and hip-hop. 

 

They created a traveling production company that hosts live poet versus emcee battles in two cities per month and sell out  venues wherever they go. You may recognize Queen Sheba’s name from her spine-tingling piece “We Are Women” she did for All Def Poetry.
