>Eva Tanguay, America’s first rock star, was some kind of early 20th century blend of Lil Kim and Foxy Brown, judging from these two quotes (thanks to Jessica Calvanico for assistance in research):

“In 1910, a year after the Lincoln penny was issued, Tanguay appeared on stage in a coat entirely covered in the new coins.”

“She was appearing in a production called Hoodoo, and when a fellow chorus girl accused her of hot-dogging onstage, Tanguay turned and choked her cast mate until the girl’s face turned blue and she passed out.”

She had the sartorial splendor and skrilla fetish of Lil Kim with the brutish toughness of Foxy Brown.
