BET Networks will debut its first ever original music documentary when My Mic Sounds Nice: A Truth About Women and Hip-Hop, premieres later this month.

The documentary, which was directed by Ava DuVernay centered around the impact women have had on the genre of Hip-Hop, since its inception in the early 1970’s.  

Mc Lyte, Yo Yo, Rah Digga, Eve, Missy Elliot, Trina, Jermaine Dupri, Russell Simmons, Kevin Liles, ?uestlove, and a variety of rappers, executives and journalists are featured in My Mic Sounds Nice.

“This is a story that could not be told by one voice. It required a chorus. And although this story is comprehensive, it is still likely one of many truths about the role of women in hip-hop” Stephen Hill, President of Music Programming and Specials, told AllHipHop.

In related news, Mike Epps has been tapped to host the fifth annual BET Hip-Hop Awards, when the show returns October 16th.

My Mic Sounds Nice: A Truth About Women and Hip-Hop will air August 30th at 10:00 PM EST.

    When hip hop first began experts said it would be a temporary underground fad that will go away; similiar to hairstyles, but 30 years later it is on TV, Dominates the radio airwaves, and is shared by all races on each continent.

  2. Miami Kevin says:

    You can say all that bout hip hop, but it is actually being used as a tool to destroy black first then hispanics second, either the message is bling bling or how to get a girls and you what happens when you get a girl Aids Hiv and all that. Lil wayne and drake are the biggest sellers of that propaganda. Way to go take over our kids spirit & brians.
