OXYGEN MEDIA TURNS UP THE BEAT FOR
“SISTERHOOD OF HIP HOP”
SEASON TWO ON TUESDAY, JUNE 9 AT 9 PM ET/PT
Executive Producer T.I. Appears Along with
Hip Hop Icons T-Pain, Da Brat and Irv Gotti
NEW YORK, NY – May 5, 2015 – Oxygen Media’s hit docu-series “Sisterhood of Hip Hop” season two premieres on Tuesday, June 9 at 9pm ET/PT, following the next generation of female MCs. The empowering series returns with Bia, Brianna Perry, Diamond, Nyemiah Supreme and Siya as they head to the west coast to make their mark on the music industry. Executive Producer and Grammy Award-winning artist T.I. appears this season along with hip hop icons, mentors and friends T-Pain, Tank, Irv Gotti, Adrienne Bailon, Da Brat, Funkmaster Flex and more. Season one of “Sisterhood of Hip Hop” delivered the network’s highest-rated series premiere among all key demos in 2014.
“The drive and passion of these female MCs is what makes ‘Sisterhood of Hip Hop’ stand out and really resonate with young viewers,” said Rod Aissa, Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Development, Oxygen Media. “This season they immerse themselves in LA’s hip hop scene surrounded by some of the most influential mentors as they put it all on the line and risk everything to make a name for themselves.”
All roads lead to Los Angeles as these five up-and-coming artists continue to push their careers forward. Temptation arises for Siya when T-Pain shows interest in signing her, leaving her to decide whether to jump ship or stay loyal to Tank. Meanwhile, Diamond is happy and in love with a new man, but with her manager incarcerated, she struggles trusting anyone else at her label. On the hunt for a record deal, Nyemiah Supreme decides to leave her new romance with artist Mack Wilds back in New York and take her music in a deeper, more emotional direction, much to her manager’s disapproval. Brianna is at a standstill when her management refuses to write any more checks until she comes up with a hit so she has to hustle on a budget. Bia brings her boyfriend Magic along for her exciting new beginning with RCA Records, but when she reaches out to Pusha T and other music masterminds for advice on her new single, she doesn’t get the answer she is looking for.
