Dana Elaine Owens was born on March 18, 1970 in Newark, New Jersey, USA. She is the daughter of Rita (Bray), a teacher, and Lancelot Owens, Sr. She came from a police family–both her father and older brother were cops, which would later influence her rhyming style and life philosophy. Owens witnessed both sides of Black urban life in the USA while growing up.
Her debut single, “Wrath of My Madness,” was released in 1988. A year later, her debut long-player, “All Hail the Queen,” enjoyed favored reviews: an old, wise head was evident on the top of her young shoulders. Her name means “delicate and sensitive” in Arabic, but she has often been anything but in her rhymes and the messages she sends out through them. 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, alongside her business partner Shakim Compere. A role model who takes the responsibility to heart, Latifah carefully constructed a fine career for herself–one that is constantly moving upward.
