Woman On Top: Brianna Perry

Brianna Perry [Ep 1]

Who better to kick off the “Woman On Top” segment for my “International Affair” radio show than Brianna Perry?

The fresh-faced rapper has been putting in work since she was a child, making her debut on Trina‘s Diamond Princess album at the tender age of 10. A recent graduate of the University of Miami, the now 22-year-old just released the buzz single “I’m That B.I.T.C.H” and is starring in Oxygen’s Sisterhood Of Hip Hop reality series.

I caught up with Brianna during a private spa event in New York City, celebrating her recent success.

Sisterhood Of Hip Hop is the long-awaited series showcasing one of the toughest jobs there is: that of the female MC.

The story goes that Executive Producer T.I. was given a reality show for the “First Lady” of his Grand Hustle label, Iggy Azalea, who turned it down. Not one to waste an opportunity, Tip brought together a group of Iggy’s fellow rappers Nyemiah Supreme, Brianna Perry, Diamond, Siya and Bia and changed the show’s theme to young women making their way through the industry.

As an ardent supporter of all things female in hip-hop, I’ve supported and known three out of the five women for many years. I’ll be closely watching Brianna, Diamond and Nyemiah as they deservedly become household names, and I’m excited to get to know Siya and Bia.

Tune in to Sisterhood Of Hip Hop when it debuts tomorrow night on Oxygen at 9pm ET.
