Mercedes LadiesI may not be a hip hop head but I do love a good story about pioneering girls taking on Pretty Tough challenges.  

If hip-hop is on your playlist, and you have an appreciation for Old School, you’ll appreciate this Davey D. video interview with Sheri-Sher who was a female emcee back in the day (late 70’s and early 80’s).

Her book,  Mercedes Ladies, is a gritty, novel based on the true adventures of the first all-female MC and DJ crew in hip hop history.

Born and raised in the Boogie Down Bronx NYC, Sheri Sher became a founding member of the now-legendary crew. Coming up in the late 1970s meant constantly overcoming obstacles and daring to enter an all-male arena during the birth of hip hop.

The Mercedes Ladies presented nothing more or less than raw talent as female entertainers who were truly before their time. Eventually they gained as much respect in the streets as they did on stages, performing alongside living lengends like DJ Kool Herc, Grandmaster Flash, Afrika Bambaataa, Dr. Jeckyl & Mr. Hyde, The Cold Crush Brothers, Grand Wizard Theodore, The Funky 4+1, and many more.

Sher’s story is a fascinating look into a culture whose beginnings are still being discussed today and it’s gratifying to know there was an all female crew that made a contribution to hip-hop culture. 

The Dreamgirls of Hip Hop? Could be a movie development deal brewing.
