Welcome to the fourth issue of Anattitude Magazine, proudly presenting "Hip Hop is...".
ROKAFELLAHip Hop is about breaking, it’s about the b-girl legend Rokafella who knows how to rock a fella. She is one of today’s most known b-girls worldwide, dancing since the age of 16 and growing up in Spanish Harlem. Her worldwide input in breaking and teaching the art and history of Hip Hop dance and b-girling is amazing! Her latest project “All The Ladies Say” is a documentary that highlights the lives of six iconic female b-girls from the USA.
CASEYHip Hop is Casey, one of the most acknowledged MCs in France. Not only do Hip Hop heads adore her, that’s the amazing thing, she is such a hardcore MC with such a strong attitude and presence that her lyrics are listened to by a lot of different people. It’s like having a history lesson with a serious caustic undertone.
M.A.F.I.A.Hip Hop is about the deejay, it’s about M.A.F.I.A., one of the most charming persons, wearing her laces loose behind the turntables and as Sneaker Freaker’s first lady she is kicking it hard for the ladies. If you are somehow involved in “female Hip Hop” you cannot avoid her, someday, somewhere, you will meet her, because M.A.F.I.A. is all over, coming straight out of Melbourne.

Shanté paved the way for all later coming female MCs like nobody else and now, 25 years later, she is professor Dr. Shanté and tells us her own Hip Hop life history and why she quitted Hip Hop to gain an education. This interview is full of attitude and simply legendary!

INDIE184Hip Hop is about graffiti, it’s about Indie184, a wonderful sista with a dope attitude on motherhood. Being the lady at the side of legendary graffiti artist Cope2 and having three kids, she is always on the run to keep it real for the ladies. Whether in the streets, on the tees or curating street art expos strictly female, come to her correct, cause as she puts it, “real recognizes real.”
KLORYes and graffiti is about another living legend, it‘s about Klor. There is no need for words, it’s 123 Klan, legendary!
