Here I am in America Mambouka‘s NYC Girl DJ Calendar, a project that will benefit the youth program at West Harlem Residence. Order yours from our indiegogo campaign. We’re super honored to have Sean Lennon and Yoko Ono’s support. We’re turning this whole thing into a foundation that will provide funds for youth art programs across NYC, so please help spread the word!
My 2012 New Year’s resolution was to become a full-time DJ with no side hustle needed by the time 2013 came around. Thanks to a lot of love, support, and persistence, I (or perhaps we) pulled it off six months ahead of schedule. I’d like to extend a very heartfelt thank you to Scratch Music Group for adding me to the team and for challenging me to entertain complete strangers in random places every week, especially in the last four months (Grand Central Station…did that really happen?). Thanks to Whiskey Rebel and Obra Negra for the steady weekend work! Of course, a special thanks goes to my rapper friend Kosha Dillz for taking me to SXSW and for teaching me the self promotion ropes. I couldn’t have done all of this without help from some of my favorite DJ friends Rob Flow, Morsy, and Tropic. And to cap off a great year of living the dream, you can find me DJing on New Year’s Eve at Ocean Grill (384 Columbus Ave)!
PS Pre-order your Girl DJs of NYC calendar here. I’m in it! Proceeds benefit the youth program at West Harlem Residence.
Rob Flow and I just got back from visiting the Bay where we DJed Kool Mondays at Beauty Bar in the Mission and made a guest appearance on Wild N Krazy Kids at Youth Radio in Oakland. You can listen to the show here. Rob paid tribute to our friend Dinco D. (Leaders of the New School), and I went in on some classic New York Hip Hop tracks. You can catch Dinco D. right now on the Hip Hop Gods Tour with Public Enemy. Rob’s at Sutra tonight and tomorrow night, and I’m at Obra Negra tonight, Whiskey Rebel tomorrow, and No Fun on Sunday.
Last week I traveled to Austin, TX to DJ for my rapper friend Kosha Dillz at SXSW. We played shows with Murs, Mickey Avalon, Blaqstarr, Kyle Rapps, Silent Knight and The Band Called Fuse, Soul Khan, and Shinobi Ninja. It was a whole lot of fun. Checka checka check us out!

Last month I filled in for Ben-Ha-Meen on the Combat Jack Show with Dallas Penn on PNC Radio with special guests Rah Digga, Nitty Scott, and Sean Price. It was a blast. It got real magical at the end when Rah Digga and Nitty Scott freestyled over Common’s new track Sweet. I played mini sets throughout the show, mostly sticking to classic Hip Hop with a few recent favorites thrown in. Have a listen:
