All Hail The Queen by Queen Latifah
Released: Nov 1989
Label: Rhino
Produced with Mark the 45 King, All Hail the Queen introduced a 19-year-old with uncommon poise. Even in an era when rappers spoke with deep authority, this "Asiatic black woman" in a headwrap stood out. She jacks her body to "Come Into My House," eviscerates sucker MCs on "Wrath of My Madness" and gets support from De La Soul ("Mama Gave Birth to the Soul Children") and Stetsasonic's Daddy-O (the ragga-tinged "The Pros"). But the most important cameo belongs to Monie Love, who joins forces with the Queen on "Ladies First," an anthem of womanist-inspired hip-hop.
