The former rapstar, first hailing from UK, is still active as a Hip Hop activist, who currently is hosting the ‚Ladies First‘ showcase in Miami, a network/show to support females in HipHop. „I’m all for my girls! Ladies First, that wasn’t just a song for me, it really was dear to my heart. Like, Latifah will tell you, that song wasn’t a joke for us. We really meant that and we still live that philosophy till this day – Ladies First!“ (interview quote, 2011)
