Boss (born Lichelle Laws in Detroit, Michigan in 1974) is a female gangsta rapper who's debut album "Born Gangstaz" released in 1993 propelled her to one of the most successful female rappers of that time. Her name is sometimes spelled Bo$$.

Boss was first a duo, with Laws as Boss the rapper and her friend Irene Moore as her DJ, Dee. Laws and Moore relocated to Los Angeles after graduating high school. Laws was spotted by DJ Quik who stuck her on a track with AMG. Russell Simmons liked the track and promptly signed her to Def Jam West. Their debut album "Born Gangstaz" was released in 1993, and the single "Deeper" hit #1 on "Billboard"'s Hot Rap Tracks. The next single "Recipe for a Hoe" also hit #1 on the Rap Tracks chart.

In 2004, she released a mixtape titled "The Six Million Dollar Mixtape" and remix of Detroit Stand Up From Esham Boss currently is working on her third LP entitled, "American STREET-Heart" slated for release 4th quarter 2008 on Esham's Reel Life Productions.
