Hip-Hop’s first female emcee MC ShaRock has received a certificate of recognition from the city of New York by Mayor Bill de Biasio. 

Sha-Rock is the first female emcee-rapper of hip hop culture “on wax” or record on vinyl from its inception in the 1970s. She began as a local b-girl, or breakdancer, in the earliest days of South Bronx hip hop scene and culture in the late 1970s.

The Funky 4 + 1 had their first significant hit with the 12-inch single “Rapping and Rocking the House” on Sugarhill Records (1979) as well as “That’s the Joint” (1980).

As an early pioneer affiliated with the Zulu Nation, MC Sha-Rock inspired a style of rapping emulated and made notable by Run DMC called the “echo chamber”.

Congrats ShaRock

Thank you to the Mayor of New York @Bill de Blasio for co-signing on this award… He is really in love with Hip Hop Culture MC ShaRock Sharon Jackson MC Sha-Rock Van Silk Bo Djbreakout Baron Djbaron Chappell
