Moe Edwards, aka Uncle Flow, was born and raised on Detroit’s west Side. His grandparents gave him his spiritual foundation and he adopted his leadership and hustler qualities from his mother. Edwards fell in love with Jazz before he discovered Hip-Hop in the early 80’s. His dream was to be a famous saxophone player, but dropping out of school to pursue the street Life extinguished that dream.
While on the streets of Detroit hustling to survive, Edwards discovered his gift to rap. He later became a Hip-Hop artist that participated in talent shows around the city and submitted a demo to Motown’s Barrett Strong. But the streets began to consume him, so he made the decision to join the United States Navy in 1989. After four years of service, Edwards came home a decorated War Veteran in 1993. In 1994 he believed and confessed Christ and became a Gospel Rap artist that helped Pioneer Christian Hip-Hop. In 1995 Edwards became an ordained elder and began to preach, teach, and lead evangelism movements in the city. So Edwards is a natural born leader who has a very colorful resume.
In 2014 God moved on Edwards to initiate a movement that would unite, empower, and promote female gospel artists. On January 13, 2016 Edwards met with artists Toya Black and Lyrik to discuss the movement, and The Queens of the Mic was formed that day at a Starbucks in Grand Prairie Texas. After only four months of organizing, The Queens of the Mic movement has spread around the world and has produced some epic projects. In April, they promoted the first all-female gospel rap concert and on May 11, 2016 they dropped the first mixtape to feature 11 various female gospel rap artists from around the world. On July 2nd , The Queens of the Mic are scheduled to perform for the WNBA Dallas Wings at half-time of their game against the Connecticut Sun. Their next project is a short film entitled “Rise of the Queens”.
