Before fist pumps and Snooki, there was Dana Owens, a true, down-to-earth Jersey girl, spittin’ rap lyrics just as towering as her 5’10” frame. We call her Queen Latifah, but she wears many crowns: Cover Girl. Grammy winner. Oscar nominee. The list goes on. For more than two decades, Latifah’s held her Black Reign – and shows no signs of giving up the throne any time soon. Take note, commoners. Long live the Queen.
Get more on Latifah in the September 2011 issue of Sister 2 Sister.
