If you’ve seen the 90’s gangster film, Belly, or even if you’ve watched A Bronx Tale back in the day, chances are you probably remember actress/singer, Taral Hicks Dawson, very well. She played the dressed-to-kill ride or die girlfriend of rapper DMX’ character, “Tommy Bunds” in Belly and the shy around the way chick in A Bronx Tale, who caught a little flack for falling in love with her Italian boyfriend in the movie.

She had also signed to Motown Records and released her 1995 album, “This Time,” which peaked at number 4 on Billboard and featured her cover of Deniece Williams’ song, “Silly,” but we didn’t really hear much from her on the music end after that either.

We did a lil’ bit of diggin’ and came up with gold because we found her and let’s just say that time has most definitely been on her side. Taral is 41 years old now and is married with two children, but the biggest shocker of them all is what she does for a living now. Flip the page and check her out…
