I WAS JUST THINKING ABOUT BEATLEJUICE TODAY!!!!!! I EVEN MADE A REFERENCE ABOUT IT IN CONVERSATION!!!!!! (this song played in the final cut and credits and they played Harry Belafonte during the dinner scene)
“U.N.I.T.Y” is a Grammy Award-winning song by rapper/actress Queen Latifah’s 1993 album, Black Reign. The single, released on January 6, 1994, spoke out against the disrespect of women in society, both from without and within.
Because of its message, many radio and TV stations would play the song without censoring the words “bitch” and “hoes”, which appear often in the lyrics, particularly the chorus and the line “who you callin’ a bitch?!” that ends each verse. The song samples “Message from the Inner City” by The Crusaders. The song was also featured on Living Single, Latifah’s series which aired in the same year.
There is another version which gained airplay called, “U.N.I.T.Y. (Queen Ruff Neck Boot)”, which has a similar beat to the album version, reducing most of the jazz sample replacing it with a hip-hop beat. It can found as a clean version on “20th Century Masters: The Millennium Collection: The Best of Queen Latifah” & “Hip-Hop: Gold”.
