Oxygen's SISTERHOOD OF HIP HOP to Debut 8/12
Oxygen Media introduces the next generation of female emcees in the new docu-series, "Sisterhood of Hip Hop" premiering Tuesday, August 12 at 9 PM ET/PT. From 51 Minds ("TI and Tiny: The Family Hustle," and "Below Deck") comes an empowering series that showcases female artists chasing their dreams in a music genre traditionally dominated by men. Discovered and mentored by the biggest names in hip hop, Bia, Brianna Perry, Diamond, Nyemiah Supreme and Siya each bring a unique voice and style to the table. The eight episode series will also include appearances by hip hop icons, mentors and friends such as Eve, Lil Jon, Travie McCoy, Rick Ross, Tank, and Irv Gotti among others.
To introduce the up-and-coming stars of hip hop, Oxygen will air a preview special on Tuesday, July 22 at 8:15 PM ET/PT, giving viewers a look at what makes these five women worthy of the sisterhood.
With Grammy-Award winning recording artist T.I. serving as Executive Producer, along with Christian Sarabia, Rabih Gholam and Roy Orecchio, this new series gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the music business and what happens when women want to change the game to root for each other and not against each other. Despite the sacrifices they often make in their personal lives, these "femcees" are determined to succeed, but not at the cost of The Sisterhood they have built while overcoming the barriers and challenges that come with a rise to stardom.
"The talented artists featured in 'Sisterhood of Hip Hop' are vibrant characters that will resonate with Oxygen's young, female viewers," said Rod Aissa, SVP, Original Programming and Development, Oxygen Media. "The optimistic and empowering nature of the show is truly unique and we look forward to rooting for each woman's success and giving fans the opportunity to follow along on their journey."
