    Why does everyone refer to queen latifah as the first lady of hip- hop instead of Roxanne Shante?

      'Cause Queen Latifah went mainstream and Roxanne Shante didn't. Its the media (magazines, radio, tv) that put it like that.

      Roxanne Shante of course is doper but Queen Latifah is more recognized by a wider audience.
