Queen Latifah talks hip hop, running for prez
Queen Latifah has already had an impressive music and acting career, and now she's about to launch a new daytime talk show Sep. 16. The groundbreaking Jersey-bred rapper isn't stopping there, however.
In an interview with Vibe, The Queen revealed that she has even considered running for office, as she's been involved in current events since her childhood. Still, she admits that her hip hop past has had a big hand in shaping her as a person.
"Hip hop definitely taught me a lot," she told the source. "Having to create your own identity and become known and respected in a male-dominated field - it requires some guts."
As far as current female rappers in the industry go, Latifah told the Rickey Smiley Morning show that she has yet to be impressed. According to BET, she gave Nicki Minaj props, but believes that other ladies on the scene deserve some of the limelight.
