As I noticed this, I began to wonder “Why?”. I mean, talents like Dj Kool Herc, Afrika Bambaataa, Frosty Freeze and Lee Quinones did have counterparts like Sha Rock, Lisa Lee, Lady Pink, Dj Spinderella and so on. So, I decided to take the time out to introduce you all to 10 of Atlanta’s most influential Women in Hip-Hop. This particular post will be broken down into 2 parts, consisting of 5 very versatile and diverse women per post. Enjoy!!!
