DETAILS AND OFFICIAL RULES
Why is Boss Up, Inc. having this contest?
We at Boss Up, Inc. thought that this contest would be a great way for young women to be encouraged because they are so misrepresented and overlooked in today's Hip Hop Industry. We want to do something to help inspire and encourage those sisters out there that are striving for their spot in the Hip Hop Game!
We feel that there is a blatant void of female emcees in the hip hop game that are getting the support and recognition they deserve. We need the Feminine voice in Hip Hop to better understand and appreciate our sisters' views, pain, perspective and artistic contribution.
...And Sistas, if the Lil Kims', Trinas' and Foxy Browns of the world don't exactly represent where you coming from, then where YOU at? We want to hear from you and we putting our money where our mouth is. Good luck!
*If the Grand Prize winner resides outside of the continental U.S. she will have to accept the cash prize and she will not be eligible for all the expense paid trip.
