critics' view

Queen Latifah followed many female acts in blazing a trail for women in rap with the release of her 1989 debut, All Hail the Queen. Catapulted by “Wrath of My Madness” and the Monie Love-assisted feminist anthem “Ladies First”, the album produced in part by DJ Mark the 45 King tackled issues like gender disparity and domestic violence, which remained talking points throughout Latifah’s career. All Hail the Queen established “The La La La from Halstead” as the queen of rap’s Daisy Age – triggered by the Native Tongues – and a bona fide spitter equipped to go bar for bar with any male counterpart.
