With all the negative flap about the music industry’s portrayal of females in Hip-Hop music, some local females have put an empowering spin on the male-dominated skills of MC-ing and break dancing, as they present the 3rd annual B-Girl Be Summit in the Uptown area of Minneapolis, set to kick off Thursday June 28th at Intermedia Arts, running through Sunday July 1st. MN Artists recently produced a profile on co-founder Rachel Raimist, highlighting her life as inspiration for her art.
