For our first post, we salute one of the first two ladies to represent for Hip-Hop on the wheels of steel, the legendary DJ Lady Love. After moving to Queens at a young age, she got her start in DJing by learning the craft from DJ Davy DMX of the funk group Orange Krush, who also did production for Run-DMC. As time progressed, her skills and record collection improved. She would then be referred to as "New York's #1 Female DJ" who did a series of parties, shows and other special events.
In 1981, she took a hiatus from DJing, but returned some time later and has been rockin' it in full force since. DJ Lady Love often refers to herself as a "Hip-Hop fiend" and continues to delight audiences with her blends at clubs around the country, cruise ships and hosts her own radio show called The Love Shack, that airs Sundays at 7:00 pm (EST) and is produced by DJ Charlie Rzock on FONYE Radio. We salute you queen!
