Da Brat was one of the first of a new breed of hard-edged female MCs to hit the hip-hop scene during the '90s. Da Brat was born Shawntae Harris in Chicago in 1974, and started rapping at age 11. Still a teenager, she was discovered by producer Jermaine Dupri in 1992, when she won an amateur rap contest and got a chance to meet Dupri's proteges Kris Kross. With their endorsement, Dupri signed her to his So So Def label and produced her debut album, Funkdafied, which was released in 1994. The title track was an enormous hit, going to number two on the R&B charts and spending nearly three months on top of the rap singles chart. Its success -- as well as that of the follow-up singles "Fa All Y'All" and "Give It 2 You" -- helped Da Brat become the first female rapper ever to have a platinum-selling album. Funkdafied also hit number one on the R&B album chart, a staggering achievement for a debut release by a female rapper. For her 1996 follow-up, Anuthatantrum, Da Brat took greater control of her music and persona, scoring hits with "Sittin' on Top of the World" and "Ghetto Love." The album was another commercial success, returning her to the R&B Top Five and the pop Top 20. In its wake, Da Brat made high-profile cameo appearances on records by the likes of Mariah Carey, Missy "Misdemeanor" Elliott, and Lil' Kim, among others. She also made her film debut in 1996 in the Shaquille O'Neal comedy Kazaam. Her album Unrestricted appeared in the spring of 2000, and found her sporting a somewhat sexier image. It became not only her second R&B chart-topper, but also her biggest album on the pop charts to date, climbing into the Top Five. She also enjoyed hits with the singles "That's What I'm Looking For" and "What'Chu Like." Click here for more on Da Brat!
Marcus Schenkenberg says his bare butt is his greatest asset. As a lanky, dark-haired boy growing up in Stockholm, Marcus had visions of being either an NBA star or a fighter pilot. School, however, held little interest for him, and in 1987, he opted to travel America with a friend. Two years later he was discovered by a photographer while rollerblading on California's Venice Beach. Schenkenberg (who had been earning money as a dogwalker and a nanny for two young children) agreed to have his picture taken, and within months, he was en route to the runways of Paris. The catwalks, Schenkenberg says, prepared him for the superstardom that hit soon after, when Bruce Weber shot him showering naked for a Calvin Klein jeans ad. By 1991, he was modeling the spring and fall collections for the likes of Gianni Versace, Donna Karan, Ungaro and, of course, Calvin Klein. His first magazine cover--for Bazaar--was also that year. He has since appeared in hundreds of haute-couture shows and in magazines ranging from Vogue Italia to Elle.
