Check out this brand new SEX SELLS “My Mic Sounds Nice” trailer! The documentary will give an inside look at how women have affected rap music, and in turn how rap music affects female MCs of past and present.

Artists such as MC Lyte, Missy Elliott, and Queen Latifah contributed significantly to the shaping of hip hop music, bringing new sounds to the record labels. With the emergence of a younger generation of women in hip-hop including Nicki Minaj and Diamond, My Mic Sounds Nice: A Truth About Women and Hip Hop will serve as a commentary for how hip hop music is influenced by women and vice versa.

My Mic Sounds Nice: A Truth About Women and Hip Hop, produced and directed by acclaimed young filmmaker Ava DuVernay.

The documentary will give an inside look at how women have affected rap music, and in turn how rap music affects female MCs of past and present.

This artistically-shot documentary, using full-camera portraits and interviews of some of the greatest women to ever hold a mic, examines gender-specific differences in artistry, marketing, promotion and economics, and explores why there are far fewer female than male MCs.  DuVernay, whose debut documentary, This Is The Life, won numerous audience awards and premiered on Showtime in May 2009, asks whether there’s still a place for women in hip-hop.  The answer may surprise you.

My Mic Sounds Nice premieres Monday August 30, @ 10p EST on BET.
