all hail the queen
Queen Latifah. What a woman. I grew up watching her, hearing her, admiring her. And in that time, I gave doubled and tripled my respect for her. My first introduction to her was via hip-hop. She was on the mic and DJ Mark the 45 King was on the beats. She's transformed into a singer as well as an actress -- leading lady, mind you. Queen Latifah is not only a great role model for young women but for young men too. From Flavor Unit to "Living Single" to "Set It Off" to "Black Reign" to "Chicago," she's held onto her integrity and we salute her.
