Synopsis: QUIO and her girlgang the QUEENZ are having their own idea of a party: In the „QLUB“ the girls
are behind the decks. They are the leaders, and boyz are their toys. All would be great, if it wasn`t
for the adversary girlgang, the KINGZ. What they don`t know is that QUIO is a voodoo queen,
who can stop the time and freeze the rivals, in order to turn them into a photograph and then to
get rid of them by means of a scissor...
The narrative music video QUIO: RISING TIDE operates with strategies of hegemonic femininity.
The reverse gender relations are shown as being natural, just to then tell the classical story of a
gang battle. Only the weapons are rather unusual to the hiphop genre...
