Queen Latifah (born Dana Elaine Owens on March 18, 1970 in Newark, New Jersey) When it comes to legendary Hip Hop Emcee’s, be they man or woman, not many rank higher than Queen Latifah. So much can be said about this woman, her achievements are vast and dynamic. She’s an emcee, songwriter, actress, model, television producer, record producer, talk show host, and Grammy Award Winner- Talk about woman in charge, Queen Latifah is that and then some!
With this ‘60 Second Hip Hop Lesson’ I chose to feature her song U.N.I.T.Y. because of its lyrics and powerful message imploring females to carry themselves with dignity and for men to treat women with respect instead of objects.
It appears this message has fallen on deaf ears within the current landscape of today’s false hip hop music. Will we ever have inspiring lyrics such as U.N.I.T.Y. In mainstream Hip Hop again? DON’T FORGET TO PRESS PLAY. Enjoy! #hiphop #queenlatifah #repost #60secondhiphoplesson #hiphopculture #love
