Tiffany Lane (born August 16, 1974) known by her showbiz name Charli Baltimore, is a female rapper. Her stage name is taken from Geena Davis's character in the film The Long Kiss Goodnight.[1]

Musical career

Lane was born to a German father and an African American mother, but she was primarily raised by her elder half-sister, Yolanda. Lane graduated from Peirce College and became a certified paralegal. Lane has two daughters, India and Sianni. She gave birth to her eldest daughter when she was 14 years old.

She met The Notorious B.I.G. in the summer of 1995, and they became involved in a romantic relationship [1]. B.I.G. introduced her to Lance "Un" Rivera, who signed her and Cam'ron to his new label, Untertainment. She made her first appearance in the music industry in 1995 with Junior M.A.F.I.A.'s "Get Money" playing The Notorious B.I.G's then wife Faith Evans. Her first video was in 1998 with the hit "Money" featured on the Woo movie soundtrack. Lane was also referenced by rapper Jay-Z in his song the "Allure" on The Black Album when he said, "All the Christys in every city and Tiffany Lanes we're all hustlers in love with the same thang...".

With collaborators such as Cam'ron and N.O.R.E., Lane recorded her debut album Cold as Ice which featured tracks like "Money," "Pimp Da 1 u Love," "N.B.C.," and "Stand Up."

After being delayed several times due to friction between Lane and the label, Cold as Ice was eventually released promotionally in 1999 (it was not actually made available to the general public until 2009, for digital download). After a five-year hiatus, she was signed to Murder Inc. Records (later renamed The Inc. Records) by CEO Irv Gotti. After constant album delays, she left the label. In 2006 she became affiliated with The Game and The Black Wall Street Records. She was never signed to the label but appeared on mixtapes with the rest of the Black Wall Street dissing Irv Gotti and 50 Cent and his G-Unit.

Lane has made appearances in songs such as "Down 4 U", "We Still Don't Give A Fuckk", and "No One Does It Better" from "Irv Gotti Presents The Inc", Ja Rule tracks "Down Ass Bitch" and "The Last Temptation", the Christina Milian track "Spending Time" and Ashanti's "Rain On Me (Remix)." In 2003, she earned a Grammy Award nomination for Best Female Rap Solo Performance, for her single "Diary".[2]

Charli is re-signing with The Inc. Records, who failed to release her 2nd album "The Diary (You Think You Know)", as confirmed on an interview with Wendy Williams
