Medusa started rhyming when she was just 13, alongside breakdancing and poplocking. Alongside being an incredible and transformative artist, Medusa is an educator dedicated to her community and to creating opportunities for women in hip- hop. She’s spoken (and performed) at colleges and seminars on the effects of hip-hop on children and women, including an appearance at the 26th Annual Black Conscious Conference. She’s currently on the Board of the Los Angeles Arts Committee, and continues to grace the world with her electrifying performances. Catch @legendmedusa FRI Sep 16 @fordtheatres
