"It's Whatever" is a battle rap about real beef in a club, a fight. Laila Ali, the pro fighting daughter of "The Greatest" Mohamed Ali, used the single as her theme song and entrance music for a recent bout, a fight where she opened up a Costco sized can of whup-ass on her sad sack opponent. Besides having her song played to thousands of fight fans, Ms. Cherry appeared at the Urban Network Conference in Palm Springs, California, which she followed with a sixteen city promotional tour for the about Rhythm and Streets.
