'Sisterhood of Hip Hop' Cast Represents a New Generation of Female Emcees
Both hip hop and reality show fans are hyped for the long awaited arrival of Sisterhood of Hip Hop, a new docu-series that premiered August 12 on Oxygen. Showcasing the next generation of female emcees and their fight to achieve their dreams in a male-dominated genre, the eight-episode show features cast members Bia, Brianna Perry, Diamond, Nyemiah Supreme and Siya.
The talented ladies, each boasting a unique voice and style, stopped by Trending 10 to give viewers a taste of what's sure to be an exciting series. When asked if Sisterhood of Hip Hop will involve more catfighting as opposed to support among the cast, all five agreed that they kept things classy and cute. "It's really about the sisterhood and our journey with our music, so it's reality," Perry said.
When it comes to the competitive nature of hip hop, Bia assured host Bridget Kelly that the group thrives on keeping everyone on their toes—to constantly push the limits and step their games up.
And while the music itself is the focus of the series, the cast's own backgrounds are also freely broadcasted, allowing viewers to develop personal connections with the emcees. As an openly gay female rapper, Siya has fought to remain true to her voice and has refused to compromise herself.
"I hold my own, and I'm a lyricist—and that's the only thing that should matter."
