H.W.A. (an initialism of Hoez With Attitudes) is an American all-female hip hop trio, composed of Jazz, Diva and Baby Girl, Diva was later on replaced by Go-Di. They were active between 1989 and 1994, and reformed in April 2012. They gained exposure after they were signed to Ruthless Records.

History[edit]

The three members came together in 1989 for an independent record label, Drive-By Records to record their first album, Livin' in a Hoe House, which was released a year later. The album was not a huge success, only making it to #38 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, but the group became known for its sexually explicit lyrics and they were soon signed to Eazy-E's Ruthless Records. They also made a cameo appearance in Eazy-E's "diss" song to Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg, "Real Muthaphuckkin G's".

In 1994, H.W.A. released two EPs — the remix album I Ain't No Lady[1] and Az Much Ass Azz U Want, which reached No. 71 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. After the album ran its course, H.W.A. disbanded without any further releases.

In April 2012, according to Jazz, H.W.A. reformed.[2]
