Watch Queen Latifah as Part of a Series of Nights That Showcase Music From Early Hip-Hop Greats
Superstar Queen Latifah is a household name in hip-hop and will perform at The Kennedy Center in Washington DC. Her performance is part of The Kennedy Center's Bridge Concert Series which honors and pays homage to artists who spearheaded hip-hop culture.
Queen Latifah has had an unforgettable influence on music and after beginning her career with her 1989 debut All Hail the Queen, has received four Grammy nominations and a Grammy Award for Best Solo Rap Performance in 1994 for her hit U.N.I.T.Y. Her uplifting lyrics addressing themes including race, sexism, and domestic violence have led her to widely being considered as one of hip-hop's first feminists and she is the first artist of the genre to be graced with with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The Golden Globe winning star is a musician, actress, author and entrepreneur.
