referencing Holly Rock, 12", Promo, PRO-A-2481

Although this song and the movie it came from ("Krush Groove") weren't huge hits, the one thing that both the song and the movie did were to establish Sheila E. in her own right. Not only did she step out of Prince's shadow with this release, she was one of the first women to be taken seriously in rap (a then primarily 'men-only' genre) and it lead to other non-Prince related projects (Blackout All Stars being the most notable.) Sheila continues to work with Prince, but she, more than any of Prince's other "proteges", is known as an artist in her own right, as well she should.
