born on March 18th, 1970, in East Orange, New Jersey. She came from a police family--both her father and older brother were cops, which would later influence her rhyming style and life philosophy. One of the most prominent female hip-hop artists on the scene for over a decade, Queen Latifah has also made tremendous inroads in movies, television, and artist management, with her management company, Flavor Unit. A role model who takes the responsibility to heart, Latifah carefully constructed a fine career for herself - one that is constantly moving upward.
In other news for anybody interested in a good television episode that has a lot to do with 'fat acceptance' in high schools you should watch for the episode "Mean" it is from the Series Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. I think it shows the hate that is so much ignored in hight school communities. Its a good watch, so watch for it on TNT or in the TV Guide.
