  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) September 04, 2010 - Since 1960 more women then men have voted in every presidential election. In honor of this day, Who Is She Record's artist and CEO Hea-Von recognizes this day as being one of the historic milestones that paved the way for her to break mainstream entertainment from her all female roster independent record label.

    "They say 'this is a man's world,' but a woman got him here! Knowing that not long ago women didn't have the right to be apart of Election Day assures me, that so long as the earth spins, change is destined
    within" - Hea-Von

    Gender equality is a struggle that women still go through today. Although women are supposed to be equal, they are considered a minority and still face opposition in their daily lives, especially in the corporate realm.

    "I read that women today make 77 cents to a man's dollar, but being an artist and CEO in a male dominated music industry, I witness sexism and unequal opportunity everyday. Most male executives view selling sex as the only marketing tool for female emcees. Above all talent should be the marketing factor before image. Record labels are so worried about selling an image that the music in hip-hop today has become watered down and less meaningful." - Hea-Von

    As it stands today, Nikki Minaj is the only female rap artist amongst the many male Hip Hop entertainers on billboard. Though there are many male Hip Hop entertainers to break into the industry and obtain multi-million dollar recording and record label deals, there has yet to be a female equivalent to Jay Z, 50 Cent, Puff Daddy or Russell Simmons.

    "What I set out to accomplish in Hip Hop and the Entertainment industry most people would deem impossible! I'm not only headed to be the next female MC in Hip Hop, I'm going to be the first female MC to receive a record label deal upon entering the Industry. Who Is She Records having an all female roster, will be the door for more female emcees and entertainers to get in the game." - Hea-Von

    Originally from Detroit, MI, Hea-Von has built a following on the Detroit and Atlanta hip-hop scene as a highly sought after entertainer. The rapper, singer, and song writer has performed all over the Midwest and has collaborated with many established artist such as MC Breed and GMC (Get Money Crew). She is now in New York maintaining her new office of Who Is She Records, a label she started in 2006. Hea-Von is currently working on her solo album, which she plans on releasing in late 2010, along with the album's first single, "#1 D-Girl (Driven)."
