Veteran, multifaceted Cincinnati Hip Hop artist/promoter Abiyah has teamed up with Brooklyn, N.Y.’s R&B/Hip Hop vocalist Corina Corina (whose latest album, The Free Way, was just released) for a two-week jaunt through the East Coast and Midwest, which began on Corina’s turf in mid-March and comes to Abiyah’s home base this week.

Playing off the tendency to dub the lone, token female artist in a Hip Hop collective as “The First Lady of (fill in the label/posse),” the pair are calling the tour “The First Ladies Tour,” which finds them teaming up with female performers in each of the cities they visit.

For the twosome’s Cincinnati stop, they’ll be joined by local duo Mahogany Reign (DJ Apryl Reign and MC Mahogany) and MCs Lionesque and LoAhmmi (formerly of local major-label Hip Hop duo Nadanuf).

CORINA CORINA , Abiyah, Mahogany Reign, Lionesque and LoAhmmi play a free show Friday at Northside Tavern. More info here .
