Presented by Athens-based hip-hop fanzine Volumes, the “Queens of Hip Hop” event on the Rooftop brings together Athens and Atlanta-area artists in order to spotlight some of the most talented female MCs and singers currently operating in our great state. Local performers include R&B standout Stella Groove, upstart rapper Minnie Lea and newcomer Torie Raven, with out-of-towners Feel Jas, Ke Turner and former “American Idol” contestant Nica Nashae also on the bill, plus other guests. Coming on the heels of the recent “For the Ladies” hip-hop showcase at Ciné, Monday’s event is further proof that, in many ways, women continue to lead the way in Athens music.
QUEENS OF HIP HOP Area female MCs perform, including Minnie Lea, Feel Jas, Ke Turner, Queen.Wavey and Torie Raven. See Calendar Pick on p. 20.
