Chuck D Leads Search For Young Female Rappers

PUBLIC ENEMY rapper CHUCK D fears the hip-hop scene is dying because there's a lack of good female rappers. The performer-turned-label boss insists the industry needs new talent, and promises to spend 2009 pushing the careers of young wannabe women MCs.
He will start with up-and-comers Creww Grrl Order, who are signed to his label SLAMjamz.
Chuck D says, "In 09, my fighting the power is for women in hip-hop, especially groups, producers, songwriters, and label heads.
"There are very, very few all women rap groups. Less than we had 25 years ago."

There is no shortage of talented female rappers in the south Chuck D! The best one I've heard yet though is actually a white girl I DJ'd for a few months ago. I've got the cd in my lab now. Here's the address on the back of it. You gotta see this girl. She comes off so raw and straight business but still so feminine and classy wit kind of a lil gangsta edge too I must say. You'll see her soon. Her name is Imazia. I've got her # on the cd if you need it but I got to ask her if I can give it out 1st. Let me know. Maybe you and I could network too.myspace.com/imazia
