QUEEN OF THE PACK

ALL HAIL THE QUEEN

In the 90’s Patra was not only Queen of The Pack, she was at the forefront of female dancehall performers breaking into the mainstream.  Sadly, she could not maintain the success she had with the brilliant tracks “Worker Man” and “Romantic Call”.  I will always remember hearing her for the first time when I was 13 and watching BET with my cousin and her video for “Worker Man” came on.  We taped it on VHS and would watch it over and over again.  I was mesmerized to say the least. She seemed like a bad girl, like many other female MCs at the time, but at my very young age I could tell that she was subversive and chic.  I still wish that her iconic braids would make a comeback with some of the ladies that are out on the music scene today.  Big braids like that are always brilliant…in my book at least.
