Female Beatboxing

Steff la Cheffe is a Swiss beatbox artist who rose to fame in Switzerland as one of the few local women in hip hop. Check out the above clip of 2008 to find out more about her motivation and the beatbox scene or the one below to see what has become of her: a pro musician with feminist views. In "Annabelle" she rants against the ideas promoted by typical women's magazines. ("Annabelle" is also the name of one of Switzerland's most famous publications in that department.)
