As a She Does the City contributor, I had the opportunity to meet Canada’s Hip Hop Queen at Manifesto 2012. Here is an excerpt from my interview with Michie with a link below to the full interview on SDTC.
Michie Mee (Michelle McCullock), also known as “Canada’s Hip Hop Queen,” is a multi-JUNO-nominated hip hop artist, actress, and dedicated mother. The first Canadian rap artist in history to sign with a major record label in the US (First Priority/Atlantic Records) in 1988, she continues to be an inspiration to musicians across the nation.
Music lovers know Michie for her distinct rap style, combining reggae & dancehall with hip hop. Throughout her career, Michie has demonstrated her skills as a versatile musician, performing with notable artists including Will Smith, Salt-N-Pepa and LL Cool J, and touring with Queen Latifah, Sinead O’Connor, and hip hop power group Public Enemy.
Beyond her musical talents, Michie is also co-host of Canada’s legendary rap radio show, “The Power Move Show,” on CKLN Radio in Toronto, and a personality who has appeared in various programs and films, including “La Femme Nikita” (CTV), “Soul Food”, and “In Too Deep” with Omar Epps.
Outside of her career achievements, Michie is a mother advocating the importance of education. She continually contributes to youth development and is often invited to host events due to her vibrant persona. One such recent event was the sixth annual Toronto Manifesto Festival of Community & Culture,
where She Does The City had the opportunity to chat with Michie about the future of women in hip hop.

As a She Does the City Contributor, I had the opportunity to attend Manifesto 2012. Here is an excerpt from interview Toronto-based rap artists pHoenix Pagliacci and JellyTooFly.
On Friday, Sept. 21, the Manifesto Festival of Community & Culture will launch its 6th Annual Year in Toronto. Manifesto Community Projects is a non-profit grassroots organization working to energize, support, and celebrate Toronto’s diverse music and arts community.
Uniting various art forms – art exhibitions, dance competitions, workshops, free outdoor concerts, film screenings, networking opportunities, seminars, and more – Manifesto creates powerful and engaging experiences offering opportunities for young artists to grow.
Two such artists are Toronto-based pHoenix Pagliacci and JellyTooFly, who both performed last year at Manifesto’s massive free outdoor concert at Yonge & Dundas Square. Both artists have returned this year as two prominent female performers set to throw down on Sunday, Sept. 23 at Manifesto’s Live at the Square.
She Does the City had the chance to connect with both artists and here’s what they had to say about their experiences with Manifesto.
