Who is Isis?

Lin Que is a female hip-hop artist. She graduated from Cathedral High School in Manhattan in 1987. She was a member of the hip-hop collective known as the Blackwatch Movement as Isis. She released her debut album Rebel Soul while affiliated with that group in 1990.

Lin Que left X-Clan to work with MC Lyte. No longer Isis, she rhymed as Lin Que and released a couple of singles for SME Records and Elektra Records. She eventually went into A&R work and graphic design, and she appeared briefly in Spike Lee's He Got Game and Ted Demme's Who's the Man?

She collaborated with various artists such as Will Downing, Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Smif-N-Wessun, the Beatnuts, Monifah, Ce Ce Peniston, and more.

She had a brief stint as a member of the Wu-Tang Clan-affiliated group Deadly Venoms. After leaving the group for business reasons shortly after its debut album was recorded and never released, she remained writing and creating music with producers Sugar Al Cayne, Azteknique, and Ayatollah. She has written for MC Lyte and has been producing music as well.

Lin Que released an album called GODspeed in 2007.

In late 2009, Lin Que launched the We are the Girl Movement by releasing the single "Suga-Coated" featuring nine female emcees and singer Rachel Walker. All proceeds from the single go to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure breast cancer charity.
