Lady Of Rage
Robin Yvette Allen, from Farmville, Virginia, the Lady of Rage is a rapper best known for collaborations with several Death Row Records artists, including Dr. Dre and Snoop Doggy Dogg on the seminal album Doggystyle. Although her music career was short, the Lady of Rage came to be associated with several pioneers, the L.A. Posse which produced several hits for LL Cool J, MC Breeze, The Real Roxanne, Chubb Rock, Tupac and Gang Starr. She also was a part of Death Row's wildly popular artist roster. In 1998, Rage left Death Row Records and the music industry generally to focus on acting, appearing in an episode of Kenan & Kel. She also went on to be featured in several television sitcoms, most notably as Coretta Cox in the very well received The Steve Harvey Show on The WB from 1996 to 2002 - she also had a small part in Next Friday as Baby D, little big sister of Day Day's ex girlfriend. In 2000, she made another rapping appearance on Snoop Dogg's "Set It Off" on his album Tha Last Meal, a solo track "Unfucwitable" on Snoop Dogg Presents...Doggy Style Allstars Vol. 1 and "Batman & Robin", which appeared on Snoop Dogg's Paid tha Cost to Be da Boss album. In 2007 she signed to Shante Broadus's (Snoop's wife) label, Boss Lady Entertainment, and recorded a mixtape called From VA 2 LA. A year later she joined FEM (Females Earning Money) Movement along with fellow female rappers Babs (of Da Band), Lady Luck, and Amil. FEM released one mixtape, Set It Off.
