1995

In 1995, Halle starred in a made-for-TV movie as the biblical Queen of Sheba in Solomon and Sheba.

She also starred alongside Cuba Gooding Jr. in Losing Isaiah, where she plays an addict who abandons her young son then returns for him after a White woman has adopted him.

Meanwhile, the Hip Hop community was still paying close attention to Ms. Berry’s blossoming career; East coast lyricists Mic Geronimo, Treach of Naughty By Nature and the late great Big L all mentioned Halle’s name with varying degrees of charm.

To bury Halle, it’s chocolate, so pardon Dolly as a hobby”
