For over 25 years, Whitaker has influenced the world of hip hop opening doors for those to come. As an artist, actress and philanthropist, she has been a trail blazer of excellence in the hip hop game.

Yo Yo exploded on the scene over 20 years ago under the keen eye of hip hop icon, Ice Cube. Her debut album, "Make Way for the Motherlode," released in 1992, set an unbreakable tone that set ripples throughout the industry. Her one of a kind voice and unapologetic lyrics were undeniably irreplaceable.

Born and raised in South Central Los Angeles, Yo Yo challenged systems of oppression within the underserved communities including sexism, racism and classism. She hailed empowerment anthems in her music such as "Stompin to the 90's," "Black Pearl," "Girl Don't Be No Fool" and her debut song "You Can't Play with My Yo Yo." In 1989, Yo Yo established I.B.W.C. (Intelligent Black Women's Coalition) which has over 60,000 members worldwide. Later in 1993, she released her third album "You Better Ask Somebody," which featured the sensational hit "The Bonnie and Clyde Theme." From 1992 to 1998, Yo Yo recorded five albums.
