Bwoy dis ya woman deh one of the first Lady of Slackness. The first honor in my mind goes to "Patra." (that woman was off the hook). Marion Hall, stage name Lady Saw, is a Jamaican singer, known as "the first Lady of Dancehall". She is the first female deejay to win a Grammy (which she did with No Doubt for "Underneath It All" — Best Performance by a Duo or Group with a Vocal), to go gold (with Vitamin C for "Smile"), and to headline shows outside her native Jamaica.
One of her recent songs, "no less than a woman" really touched me. As a person who has suffered a miscarriage, I fully know the pain associated with that loss. Her song is stating that although at this time she is unable to bear a child, it doesn't take away the fact she is still a woman.
