Album Review

Black Reign marked Latifah's move to Motown, and was also a return to the tough-talking, lyrically frank, frequently controversial material that established her as arguably the finest female rapper. "Coochie Bang" and "Weekend Love" were harsh and explicit attacks on would-be hit-and-run lovers, while "Just Another Day" and "I Can't Understand" examined the continuing inequities plaguing inner-city youth, and "Superstar" took a pointedly unglamorous view of her situation and the perils of hip-hop supremacy.

Customer Reviews

Real hip-hop

this is a really good album. especially u.n.i.t.y. I respect queen latifah and think she was a great artist.

i love this record

this to me is her best cd ever it brings back great memories

All Woman, All Hip Hop

This album is incredible lyrically and musically. Queen Latifah does it right by laying down tracks that not only empower, but also encourage her listeners with piercing words and smooth sounds. The classics on this album are obvious (U.N.I.T.Y, Superstar, Just Another Day...), but the whole LP is loaded with greats (Black Hand Side, Listen 2 Me, Weekend Love). A must have for any female hip hopper.


Born: March 18, 1970 in Newark, NJ

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Queen Latifah was certainly not the first female rapper, but she was the first one to become a bona fide star. She had more charisma than her predecessors, and her strong, intelligent, no-nonsense persona made her arguably the first MC who could properly be described as feminist. Her third album, Black Reign, was the first album by a female MC ever to go gold, a commercial breakthrough that paved the way for a talented crew of women rappers to make their own way onto the charts as the '90s progressed....
