NEW VIDEO, “MICROPHONE CHECKA” FROM SHINNING STAR SADIE HAWKINS PAYS HOMAGE TO THE LADIES OF HIP HOP WHO PAVED THE WAY
For Immediate Release:
July 12, 2012
Celebrating the female legends of hip hop like MC Lyte, Salt & Pepa, Queen Latifah, Missy, Lil Kim and others is very important in the male dominant genre. On her latest mix tape, “Girl Interrupted” hosted by DJ Scream, newcomer SADIE HAWKINS dedicates her latest track and video, “Microphone Checka” to the ladies! “I wanted to pay homage and respect to those who came before me and paved the way because some day I want a young upcoming female or male rapper to mention me as their inspiration and pay me respect.” Says Hawkins. The Columbia SC native acknowledges the road to success as a new artist isn’t easy, “ I really respect and admire any and every female in the game past & present because this game isn’t easy and to be able to get in it, stay in it, & be successful is difficult ESPECIALLY for females.” She continues to list some of her favorite female MC’s, “The females that made an impact for me are MC Lyte, Missy, Eve, Salt & Pepper, Queen Latifah, Lil Kim, & Nicki Minaj that I really admire. All of them bring a different element and flavor to the game that can definitely be respected.”
In her new video, “Microphone Checka” directed by Shae Winston, the Six Man produced track was inspired by one of her all time favorite songs, “Mona Lisa” by Slick Rick. “ I wanted to do an old school themed track for my “Girl Interrupted” mix tape to put in the mix. We did the track with the Mona Lisa sample and it came out really dope! I really wanted to show my lyrical ability and that I can rumble in the game with the best of them. As you watch the video you will rewind in time by its vintage feel. “My style is funky, diva, rock, vintage, glam so the video was a piece of cake to do. I wanted the feel of the video to be 80′s to capture that era. Break dancing was a huge part of the 80s so that’s what I made my story line about, young adults looking for fun, dancing and having a good time with friends.”
SADIE HAWKINS is currently working on her upcoming debut album scheduled for this fall. She is currently touring this summer and continuing to promote the “Girl Interrupted” mixtape available via livemixtapes.com
