Dr. Dre To Helm New Queen Latifah LP

The Queen is set to return to her throne. Queen Latifah announced recently to Rolling Stone that she’s dropping an album this December, with production handled by Dr. Dre. The New Jersey rapper also said LL Cool contributed heavily to the project.

“They pretty much did the whole album,” she said.

Missy Elliot and Swizz Beats are also scheduled to get on board before the rapper wraps production on the album.

No title has been set yet, but Latifah said she flirted with the idea of naming the LP The L Word.

The title, which is the name of a lesbian-themed drama on Showtime, she said, would have played off of her rap tag, plus all the rumored innuendo regarding her sexuality.

“Since people want to play games, I like to jab back sometimes just for fun, but I’m like, ‘Nah, that’s too much energy wasted.'”

Latifah said the first single should drop within the month.—Anthony Thomas
