The Chalice may be a new collective, but the three emcees who make it up — Sophia Eris, Claire De Lune and Lizzo — are well-known in the local music community both here and outside the region. Bringing a much needed light to female-fronted hip-hop, the trio mixes whip-smart raps, crisp production and clever imagery to create songs that don't plan on leaving your head anytime soon.

"Push It" ignited their spotlight and now the act is working on an EP to be released later this summer. They stopped by the studio to talk about the Minneapolis Wag movement, their side projects and the warm reception from the local music community.

Songs performed: "Mama," "Crown On The Rocks" and "Push It"
