In an effort to diversify their income, rappers have taken their talents to the acting side of the entertainment business. In fact, rappers scoring film roles have become so commonplace that nobody bats an eye when they hear about rappers in films. But rewind to the early 90s and it was a huge deal to see Queen Latifah playing a sharp-tongued waitress in Spike Lee’s “Jungle Fever.”
