Meet Khia, Real Deal Gangsta Rapper

While artists like DMX, Eminem, and Ol' Dirty Bastard gain street cred with occasional run-ins with 5-0, we've found one rapper with more booking photos than the entire Wu-Tang Clan. And she's a woman, baby!

Meet Khia Chambers. She's the 31-year-old rapper (real name: Khia Finch) behind the recent raunchy hit "My Neck, My Back (Lick It)" from the gold album "Thug Misses." Between 1994-99, Florida cops busted Finch more than 20 times for a variety of felonies and misdemeanors (larceny, fraud, aggravated battery, carrying a concealed weapon).

But these mug shots--taken over the years at the Hillsborough County jail in Tampa--seem to belie Khia's current thug girl pose. The rapper, who claims to be 25, can be seen smiling broadly, like she's sitting for the yearbook photographer. (1 page)
