Overview

She was not the first woman to rap on wax (that title goes to MC Lyte and/or a variety of women named Roxanne), but the moment this 1989 debut dropped, Queen Latifah became the most commanding and authoritative woman in hip-hop. Latifah rapped with stentorian diction, giving hip-hop positivity a decidedly feminine slant. In one tune she raps: "A sucker/Weak and soft/Riding my bra strap/Trying to get off." In addition, her repertoire covered a wide range of styles, including club music. Many male rappers were leery of moves toward dance music, but Latifah created assertive hip-hop/house anthems with "Come into My House," and "Dance for Me." An impressive array of artists -- De La Soul, KRS-One, and Monie Love -- appear in cameos but never upstage Latifah's one-woman show.
