Possibly one of the first white rappers, and definitely the only white soul artist of the 80′s that had consistent, credible hits on the R&B charts, Teena Marie died on Sunday at the age of 54. To pay our tribute, we thought we would post some Teena Marie classics and some of the hip hop songs she inspired. Oh and check out her rap verse on Square Biz. Fyyyyaaahhhh!
