Hip-hop is a male-dominated sport, on the surface. Since the genre’s inception, women have held a unique position of redefining the sound, look, and culture of the genre without receiving their proper credit. As a new generation of listeners, artists, and industry folk challenge the outdated perspectives that have often existed within the hip-hop community, it is imperative to create a space where women are celebrated for their contributions to the most influential sound in the world. In Buffalo, where the Hip-Hop scene is reaching a new frontier, many women who are involved in the musical arts have a two-fold mission – perfecting their gift and nurturing their community through their gift. 

With a gentle nod to the 5 elements of hip-hop, these performers will showcase their talent and tell their stories along with a handful of women propagating hip-hop. You will not only learn what they do – but why they do it. In the powerful words of Queen Latifah, this is “Ladies First.”


  • Opening: DJ Lisa Lux from Buffalo Girls  @djlisalux
