The Queens Of Hip Hop: Watch The Trailer For BET’s New Digital Documentary, ‘VIXEN’

Melyssa Ford, Gloria Velez, Buffie the Body and more on the rise and fall of video models.

Published July 9, 2018

BET.com is introducing a new documentary that will shine a light on a community that has seemingly dissipated over time: video vixens.

Featuring commentary from some of the most iconic faces in the hip-hop vixen world, including the likes of Melyssa Ford, Karrine Steffans, Buffie the Body, Gloria Velez and more, the introspective doc gives a first-hand take on how the hip-hop music industry was shaped by these models' presences.

In addition to the ladies' stories, Vixen also includes takes from influential figures in hip-hop culture who played a hand in the rise and sustainability of video vixen culture.

While the central element of the project remains the chronicling of these women's respective rises and falls from fame, it also deeply details their often overlooked experiences in what is now the #MeToo movement, misogyny in the business and more.

The first episode of Vixen will be available for viewing tomorrow (July 10), followed by the second on July 11, and the third on July 12.

The documentary, in its entirety, will be available for viewing on Friday, July 13.

Take a look at the trailer for Vixen, above.
