QUEEN PEN My Melody (Lil’ Man/Interscope) Queen Pen boasts on ”Queen of the Click” that she ”flows like no other chick”; actually, she sounds a bit like Lil’ Kim. And producer/new jack swing king Teddy Riley provides obvious samples that are often too smooth for Pen’s gritty rhymes. Still, her salacious revision of Me’Shell NdegeOcello’s ”Girlfriend” may be the most homoerotically charged rap song ever, a brave move considering hip-hop’s history of homophobia. B
