FemalesWith a lack of female presence in Hip-Hop it was only a matter of time before a project was created to prove that the women of Hip-Hop are needed just as much as the males that dominate.

Bringing together artists and DJs from all over the globe for this series of mixtapes, the instigators in this never before done project are no strangers to the music industry.

Revered mixtape DJ, DJ Technics, stepped up and utilized his skills in finding and developing talent, securing an extremely strong line up for Volume One of We Got Lyrics Too. Technics is renowned for his weekly podcast HoodStarz that focuses on the unsigned and Independent talent, thus encouraging the unique cast he chose to feature on this undertaking. While partner, veteran promotions guru and New York native General, Taylor is on board to promote and market the end result.

General Taylor has been immersed in the business for over 15 years, promoting singles from the likes of 50 Cent, Drake, Kanye West while playing a fundamental role in breaking acts such as Keri Hilson and Lil Wayne. Having worked closely with major labels such as Interscope, Def Jam, Atlantic and Universal, he too recognized the lack of women behind the mic and set forth in establishing ‘FEMALES OF THE RAP GAME’ with DJ Technics

“You know it is easy to see why there aren’t too many ladies in the spotlight when you see how they get treated but I knew they were out there,” he explained. “So I set in motion a plan to bring all these performers together and give them a platform to showcase themselves and not only has the response been impressive, the tracks these girls are submitting are going to blow folks away.”

We Got Lyrics Too Volume One will be available for free download and will feature a variety of acts who will prove that the female MC is no longer to be considered a myth. Sponsored by numerous entertainment companies and online portals including premier digital music company Digiwaxx, this project will encourage a mass of opportunities for the femcees who have been selected to feature.

Hosted by DreaTraxx and mixed by DJ Mika from Japan, We Got Lyrics Too is a testament to all women who strive to maintain a presence behind the mic in the Hip-Hop world.
females"Females have been under-represented from Day One," shared DJ Technics. "This series of tapes are going to show that the role of the female MC is not one to be taken for granted."
