Need a taste before the 17th?  Catch the 3rd Eye Open Fundraiser at As220 TODAY, July 8 with Hip Hop acts, DirtieDurdie, First Be, Trust and a special guest appearance by B-mor 7 of Isis Storm.  The show starts at 9 PM and, like the Open itself, the event is all ages.

Isis Storm and SlyShuga Present: WE RUN THIS! Women and Mothers in Hip Hop

It has been too long.  FAR TOO LONG. It is past time for women in hip hop to take the recognition they deserve, and Rhode Island is ready to bring its fiercest women organizers and emcees to the table to do it!

Isis Storm has partnered with SlyShuga to present “WE RUN THIS: Women and Mother’s in Hip Hop” – an event that will happen during May to stress how much we believe that women in hip hop have been mothers both literally and metaphorically to their friends, family, and community. Taking the title from Rah Digga’s track- like the lady herself we are not holding anything back and are not afraid to tell you that we know WE RUN THIS!

In addition, because women spend so much time supporting others that they do not take care of themselves we have added a VIP segment full of self care that will be given to the first 60 women who purchase their tickets at the full price.

Yes Yall…It has been too long.  FAR TOO LONG. It is past time for women in hip hop and the community to take the recognition they deserve, and Rhode Island is ready to bring its fiercest women organizers and emcees to the table to do it! CAUSE WE GON RUN THIS!
