Amid all the phuckery floating around online and in real life, you find those rare gems that are worth uncovering. I’m talking about Turn Me Up, a documentary directed by Glennisha Morgan, that seeks to showcase dope lady lyricists around the world.
Turn Me Up Described Via Glennisha:
In reaction to Nick Minaj’s success and dominance, the question “Where are the female emcees?” was raised repeatedly prior to the current mainstream re-acceptance of numerous female MCs. “Turn Me Up” answers the question by chronicling numerous underground and independent female emcees from the West Coast, East Coast, Midwest and South. To be specific “Turn Me Up” captures artists such as Siya, IB, Invincible, Mae Day, Miz Korona, Raven Sorvino and more in their natural element (in the studio and on stage). These emcees also share their milestones and tribulations.
Like all art projects, Glennisah and her crew need funding. Watch the trailer below and then see how you can get involved:
