The A-List Enlists Women's Voices on Recent Hip-Hop Issues

Noting the lack of women's voices on Oprah's Townhall meeting on Hip-Hop -- (I recently alluded to this when I posted the YouTube video of Michaela Angela Davis EIC of HoneyMag.com on Scarborough Reports discussing Don Imus and More) -- The A-List Magazine decided to not only address this glaring oversight, but to ask a few women from the world of Hip Hop their thoughts.

They spoke with Dr. Joycelyn Wilson, Assistant Professor of Education LaGrange College, Hip-Hop culture expert, and author of the book Home Girls Make Some Noise, Zamada and Poyzen from the female rap group NINE aka P By tha Pound, social entrepreneur/writer/Activist April R. Silver, and Dee Dee Cocheta-Williams, who represents Hip-Hop acts and video directors as president of A.B.C. Associates Entertainment Firm.

It's a pretty interesting read that also offers solutions. Go check it out.
