My Artwork: "Ladies 1st Collection: A Tribute to the Women of Hip-Hop by Kendro"

I was inspired to make this piece of artwork because I noticed that females always get the short end of the stick when it comes to discussing hip-hop. When learning about the history of hip-hop, the female contribution is rarely mentioned and in today's era, there are barely any female emcees carrying their own as they did in the 80's and 90's. I made this piece to show my appreciation for the culture of hip-hop and to pay homage to the women who have paved the way and made their mark in Black/African-American music.
