The program also includes a rare intergenerational conversation hosted by radio personality and rapper Angie Martinez with Lakeyah, Lil Mama and Roxanne Shanté who discuss their shared experiences on breaking into a male-dominated industry, the industry placing body and beauty pressure on women in the spotlight and how the internet and social media have changed the rap game.
