Queen Latifah

Born Dana Elaine Owens in East Orange and raised in Newark, Queen Latifah quickly became the leading lady of the East Coast hip hop scene of the 1990s. She even recorded the song "Jersey" (which was featured in the film New Jersey Drive) and in June 2011 was inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame.
