I went to go see Drop the Needle in the movie theatre in London, Ontario and it was quite the affair. It was the only time I’ve ever gone to a film and known pretty much everyone in the place. All of the big DJs in the city were there, as was much of the Hip Hop scene, artists and fans. It was really cool to see. And I learned a few things I didn’t know.
One scene from the documentary made me sit up and take note.
It’s from Jeff Duke aka J-Spade from the group Citizen Kane.
He said, “If you’re talking about Ron Nelson, you have to talk about Michelle Geister because she basically brought Hip Hop to Much Music. So just think about all the RapCity’s and all these. That’s all Michelle Geister. As imortant as Ron Nelson is, Michelle Geister is just as important, maybe, per se, might be even more important.”
I knew I had to get in touch with this person for the annual Women in Hip Hop Special this year. She was gratuitous enough to talk about all of the great things she’s done for the Canadian Hip Hop scene. We talk about RapCity, Much Music, and so much more.
This is the first installment of Women in Hip Hop 13, our annual celebration to mark International Women’s Day. We shine a spotlight on Hip Hop’s better half with great music, interviews, and more. Stay tuned next week for Part 2!
