    the first time i saw toshi reagon perform was at the Black Lily Festival in Philadelphia and fell in love with her music. she’s an incredible musician with a beautiful voice.

    so i’m super excited about opening our sunstar festival with a night dedicated to women in hop…it’s an homage to the days of female mc’s on the video waves (Yo MTV Raps or Rap City). i asked my nine year old stepson if he listened to female MCs and he said, “yes” with lots of confidence. so i asked him to name one, just one. his response, “Beyonce.” i’ve got a lot of work to do.
