Stand Up, the sophomore release from female hip hop and soul duo God-Des and She, is set to hit stores on July 1st. The Brooklyn-by-way-of-Wisconsin group is made up of hip hop emcee God-Des and soul singer She. Stand Up features two tracks that have already made waves - "Lick It," was performed on Showtime's The L Word and "Love You Better" held the #1 spot on MTV's LOGO network for 15 consecutive weeks - and was described as "soulful, infectious, funky and very well produced, especially for an independent group" by NEXT Magazine. Their debut album Reality was one of Advocate Magazine's top 10 indie albums in 2006.

Since their move to New York in 2004, God-Des and She have shared the stage with artists such as Spinderella, hip hop notable MC Lyte, Slick Rick, lesbian rock band Betty, and hip hop rapper/producer extraordinaire Immortal Technique. And while their rise to popularity might have seemed sudden, both God-Des and She have been sharpening their skills for over a decade.

Hip Hop MC God-Des started rapping for her friends on the bus trips home from high school football games, where she''d play percussion in the marching band. Realizing she was more talented than the average white girl, she began writing her own songs and developing a style that's been compared to both hip hop stars Eve and Eminem, both for her bravado and shocking subject matter. Then in stepped She – a similarly gifted white soul singer, and God-Des and She was born. 

Their live show was described by Billboard as "a hook-crazy, high-energy affair, with slow jams, political fist-pumpers and sexy, sassy lyrics that resonate with listeners gay or straight." All of which has made God-Des and She a staple at Women's Music and Gay Pride festivals and music venues world-wide. The group will be touring throughout the summer and fall in support of Stand Up.
