The legendary multi-hyphenate made her NAACP hosting debut in 2023.

There’s a reason we call Queen Latifah pure entertainment royalty. With an epic career dating back to the ‘80s, decorated with hit singles and acclaimed albums, she’s more than cemented herself as one of the most respected rappers in music history.
