Southfield (CW50) – We Found Hip Hop was created as a space for women to produce media, music, and film, and find educational opportunities aimed at redefining the vital role of women in hip hop.

Hip hop is a notoriously male-dominated genre. Women in the industry, both performers and producers, can play a vital role in the industry’s future and creating a space where women who are interested in breaking into that industry can learn, develop, and succeed is exactly what We Found Hip Hop is trying to accomplish.
