SSF 2016 Featured FEMcee MC Sista Whirlwind
If you have to compare Sista Whirlwind to any artist she would be more like Wu Tang meets Lauryn Hill. She is a writer, lyricist, singer, emcee and performer; not to mention world champion in Kung Fu and acrobatics. Sista Whirlwind is the first emcee to combine Hip-hop and martial arts, all in one show stopping act. She is Hip-hop’s shero taking no prisoners as she stakes her claim among the great mc’s. Born in Alabama, Sista Whirlwind was raised primarily in Florida and Maryland . As a child, she started performing at the tender age of 5. At age 14 she began developing her skills in Choung Nu Karate. When she was not training, Sista Whirlwind was found huddled in playground ciphers learning the fundamentals of Hip-hop and Hip-hop became her escape to glory.
