MC Sha Rock is one of the most important figures in Hip-Hop. She comments on everything from Nick Minaj to the 1970s.

(AllHipHop Videos) MC Sha Rock should be thanked daily for what she has done. The first woman rapper, she has a pedigree that has few rivals. She came up in The Bronx as a member of the Funky 4 + 1, a pioneering group that broke many early boundaries in Hip-Hop during the early 70's and early 80's. As a member of the collective, Sha Rock became a history maker and legend. But, her journey has not been perfect.

MC Sha Rock left the the game suddenly in the mid-80's as Hip-Hop blossomed into a cultural phenomenon. She was the first woman emcee on national television. He had appeared in a major motion picture, "Beat Street." She has also been embroiled in a major dispute with Sugar Hill Records, the notorious, pioneering record label that birthed Hip-Hop's first hit song. In this interview with Chuck "Jigsaw" Creekmur, MC Sha Rock shares her story and her plans. She also comments on the state of Hip-Hop, women and also an upcoming movie that will chronic her story to the masses.
