Write On Point announces media partnership with Phuturehypes Female MC / Rapping Finals Competition

London -- (ArriveNet - Jul 12, 2005) --UK based black music magazine Write On Point, today announced that it is to become a media partner for the second annual Phuturehype Female MC / Rapping Finals, set to take place in Londons East End on the 17th September 2005.

Founder / Editor-In-Chief of Write On Point, Janice Spence said I did not hesitate in saying yes when Denise (Phuturehypes Founder / CEO) approached me to become a media partner for this event. She is doing great things here in the UK to help promote unsigned female talent, and I am happy to support her cause.

Phuturehypes CEO, Denise Destini is now single handily taking on the male dominated world of hip hop, by organising the annual Female MC / Rapping Competition. When asked about her decision to take on such a task, she simply says I wanted to show that females can spit lyrics as well, and some times even better than males. I also wanted to give females an outlet to express their talent, especially those who had only ever performed in front of their bedroom mirrors.

The first competition took place in May 2004 and generated immense media attention. So much so, that the British weekend entertainment show T4 featured the finals in the documentary, Chancers which also featured Fat Man Scoop, Damon Dash and Wyclef.

Phuturehype has also helped to launch the career of last years runner up Lady Sovereign, who signed a four album deal with Universal / Island Records.

Media partner Write On Point, is an informative and dynamic online publication, dedicated to giving its visitors up to date news and information, from within the world of black entertainment on both sides of the Atlantic. It also aims to give maximum exposure to up-coming home grown UK talent, and information on showcases / events taking place throughout the year.
