Queen Mother Rage

Queen Mother Rage was a female hip-hop rapper from the 90's. She was a former member of the Blackwatch Committee, which consisted of activists, writers, & musicians led by X-Clan frontman, Professor X. After contributing to several of Professor X's related albums in a small capacity, Queen Mother Rage released her only solo album, "Vanglorious Law" in 1991 on Cardiac Records. The album failed to make the charts at all.

Queen Mother Rage released three singles from the album: "Slipping into Darkness," "Mental Erection," and "Key Testimony" which also failed to make the charts at all either. She planned to record a follow-up album in 1992, but when Cardiac Records folded, Queen Mother Rage abandoned the project and left the music business, fading into obscurity.

I bought the 12" vinyl Slipping Into Darkness in 1990 because I loved it. But like you say, it was deeply unpopular at the time, and any time I played it people moaned it was depressing. I just came back to it because there's some controversial female rap around at the moment and I wanted to hear QMR again.
