What is 'Queens' all about

Brianna, Jill, Valeria and Naomi appeared as the 'Nasty Bitches' in the 1990s and were the epitome of fame. Together, the four of them not only turned the world of hip-hop upside down but also achieved legendary status through their music. But well things have changed now. The four women who are now in their forties are unworldly and largely estranged by time. By reuniting the four, there is now a chance to return to old fame and vigor. But will the former megastars, also known as Professor Sex, Butter Pecan, Da Thrill and Xplicit Lyrics, manage to achieve this ambitious goal? 'Queens' will follow their comeback to the music scene as the 4 ladies swing back into action.
