MC Lyte hosted the inaugural “I Am Woman” event at the Kennedy Center in 2022 alongside Da Brat, Monie Love, Trina and more. Now, for a second consecutive year, “I Am Woman: A Celebration of Women in Hip Hop” returns to the Kennedy Center on June 4. According to an Instagram post from MC Lyte, this year will include performances by Bahamadia, Rapsody, Kash Doll and Mama Solo.

MC Lyte’s first “I Am Woman” event took place last April with Da Brat, Trina, Remy Ma, Monie Love, Mumu Fresh, Yo Yo, Mama Sol, Tierra Whack, Ra Brown and DJ EQUE.

“It is necessary and overdue,” MC Lyte told WTOP News at the time. “I am so glad that the Kennedy Center, for their 50th anniversary, decided to choose me to help curate a wonderful night where we get to shower love and attention on those emcees who rarely get the spotlight. … I’m looking forward to it because I’ll be immersed in a night of live performance.”

This year’s celebration coincides with the 50th anniversary of Hip-Hop, which officially falls on August 11. It’s one of many events paying homage to the culture. On August 11, KRS-One will host the opening of the 1520 Sedgwick Avenue exhibit in the Bronx, the birthplace of Hip-Hop. But that’s only the beginning.
