BET to debut first original music doc

BET will debut its first original music documentary, My Mic Sounds Nice: A Truth About Women In Hip Hop on August 30. The doc - which examines the gender-specific differences between the artistry, marketing, promotion and economics of female versus male hip-hop artists - features interviews with artists such as Missy Elliott, EVE, MC Lyte, Questlove, as well as hip-hop moguls such as Jermaine Dupri and Russell Simmons. 'This is a story that could not be told by one voice,' says Stephen Hill, BET's president of music programming and specials. 'It required a chorus. And although this story is comprehensive, it is still likely one of many truths about the role of women in hip-hop.'
