Queen Latifah - Name Callin part II (1998)
I first heard this on a Westwood tape from '98 and recently picked it up on Discogs. A jackin-for-beats style white label dis track very much ticked all the boxes for me in terms of the kind of thing I liked discovering when out digging. Like LL, Latifah went on to enjoy success outside of rap but could still get nasty on the mic when necessary. I don't know what sparked this off and she doesn't name any names here but given the year you can probably guess who she's talking about.
