Retired porn legend Heather Hunter has entered the music business, after embarking on a career as a rapper.

The 36-year-old star of such films as SCREW THE RIGHT THING, HUNG JURY and FRANKENHOOKER has teamed up with the likes of Wyclef Jean, Scott Storch and DJ PREMIER for her debut album THE UNEXPECTED, which was recently released on her label Blo Records.

She tells XXL magazine, "I wouldn't say I'm a natural-born rapper, but I think I've mastered the craft enough to lean more along the way.

"I wouldn't be where I'm at if you didn't know me from the adult industry. At the same time, with the mainstream, I have to work extra hard at my existence because people expect this album to be a gimmick and for me to be a novelty act... People expect me to take my clothes off, and I can't do that on my album."

Hunter, who has been romantically linked to Charlie Sheen and comedian Bill Maher in the past, was close friends with late rapper Tupac Shakur, and appeared in the video to his hit track HOW DO U WANT IT.
