Also in the Q&A session, Angie answer questions about her opinion about women in Hip Hop asked by Renee Gardner, which Angie spoke on the growth of Hip Hop and the fusing of rap and singing as she gave accolades to artist such as Lauryn Hill who strived and inspired the ways of many artists today as well as Eve for being a strong woman in the Hip Hop industry when women have been forced to try to tear each other down to get to the top.
