Isis (Lin Que)
The title song, "Hail the Word," and "The Power of Myself is Moving" were released as singles, but didn't chart at all.
In the mid-90's, Isis left X-Clan to work with rapper MC Lyte. Going by her name, Lin Que, she released a few singles for SME Records and Elektra Records.
She later got into A&R work and graphic design. She made brief appearances in the movies "Who's the Man?" and "He Got Game."
Lin Que collaborated with various artists such as Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, Monifah, CeCe Peniston, Smif-N-Wessun, the Beatnuts, Will Downing, and many more. She had a brief stint as a member of the Wu-Tang Clan-affiliated group, Deadly Venoms.
Lin Que left the group due to business reasons shortly after Deadly Venoms' debut album was recorded, but never released. She continued writing & creating music with producers Sugar Al Cayne, Azteknique, and Ayatollah.
In late 2009, Lin Que created the We are The Girl Movement by releasing the single "Suga-Coated" which featured nine female emcees such as Mala Reignz, Knewdles, Bless Roxwell, Alana, Paula Perry, Toni Blackman, J-Boo, & Tyne Phoenix along with singer Rachel Walker. The proceeds from the single went to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer charity.
Today, Lin Que appears to still be active in the music business. According to various sources, she is still recording & writing music.
