She's sexy, she's hot, she's hip and she's a DJ. But she's not you're ordinary DJ, she's DJ Lady Tribe and she's the "West Coast Murda Mami". DJ Lady Tribe speaks with MemphisRap.com about her current and upcoming projects and her passion for 'street tagging' (graffiti painting).
She's one 'down a** chick', but can you 'get down' with her or rather can you get up with her as her latest graffiti adventure was a skyscraping billboard towering over the streets of Los Angeles which is where this Murda Mami says is how she got into painting. When asked about her graffiti and how she got into it, Lady Tribe simply states "Ya know just chillin on the streeets in my hood!"
"I hate that word rebel.. I was known as the uppest female graffiti artist bomber and they [the news] tried to make an example of me," says Lady Tribe regarding her latest hassles which stemmed from her graffiti work. After getting busted for vandalism and placed on house arrest, DJ Lady Tribe started DJ'ing and wanted to battle, but instead was turned on to doing shows.
I can tell you one thing that we learned about DJ Lady Tribe in our interview with her and that's that you can't judge a sexy book by it's cover.
