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.
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 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.
