Yo-Yo (rapper)

Yo-Yo (born Yolanda Whitaker August 4, 1971) is an American hardcore rapper known primarily among hip hop fans and music critics. Her albums were never explicitly feminist, though she earned praise from some quarters for her advocacy of female empowerment, especially sexually. Her critically acclaimed debut was 1991's Make Way for the Motherlode[?] (see 1991 in music) and was followed up by the equally acclaimed Black Pearl[?] (1992, 1992 in music). After that, just as West Coast hip hop artists like Death Row Records[?] labelmates Dr. Dre and Snoop Doggy Dogg began topping the charts, Yo-Yo's albums became less and less successful, especially after Death Row began disintegrating in the middle of the decade.
