Bama Hip Hop presents Diamond Divas & Ghetto Queens, an all-female performance event created four years ago to feature up and coming unsigned women artists in urban music, specifically hip hop and R&B. Last year's edition The "Gangsta Girlz" Tour showcased artists in six venues throughout Alabama and Mississippi. This year's showcase, "Lick Me Down" is seeking aggressive female artists in the styles of Rasheeda, Lil Kim, Eve, TLC, Ciara, Pussycat Dolls and Khia. Crunk R&B singers, hip hop artists, P-Power Femcees, bad girls, and independent women are encouraged to step up and grab the mic.

Performers will have 10 to 15 minute performances at each show. Interested artists must be able to perform at dates falling on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and possibly one Sunday. Shows may be added depending on demand, and the schedule is subject to changes. Bama Hip Hop will cover the costs of the venue, DJ, sound, mics and publicity. Artists will retain 100% of all merchandise sales. Selected artists are responsible for their own transportation, meals and accommodations. Artists will also have the opportunity to purchase an additional marketing and publicity package. This is not mandatory, and will not affect your selection chances if you do not opt in. Depending on where the artist lives, this tour generally has no overnight requirements.

Artists must have professional photos and a sales ready album or mixtape available. All performance tracks must be on a CD with a backup copy. Backup dancers are welcomed in your performance. Artists having a male featured on their song may perform that song with the understanding that the male performer will not receive any mention in the promotional materials and press releases.

Bama Hip Hop is a performance opportunity network, promoting and giving artists the chance to perform for audiences to build their fanbase, sell CDs, and spark the interest of those in the music business who can help their career to look their way. They are more interested in seeing great entertainers come across their stage.

Selected artists will also be considered for the 16th Annual Juneteenth Heritage Festival (June 14, 2008) in Anniston, AL.
