Legendary, Grammy-Award Winning DJ Spinderella of Salt-N-Pepa fame is adding “Unsung Ambassador” to her impressive music biz resume. She can’t wait to sound off about her love of music and her favorite show, Unsung! So before you tune in for an all-new season beginning January 23 at 10/9c, Spinderella lets us in on her love for Unsung and her plans as the show’s official ambassador.
Along with the Superlounges, New & Next, and main stage inside the Superdome, this year’s Essence Festival offers up the Block Party in Champions Square. Emceed by the “Original Human Beat Box,” Doug E. Fresh, the free shows include a Saturday set from Deidra Muriel Roper a.k.a. Spinderella.
As the DJ for the groundbreaking group Salt-n-Pepa, Spin played a unique role in the evolution of an art form. Tracks like “Let’s Talk About Sex”, “Whatta Man”, and “Shoop”expanded the discourse and established the trio as the first female rap act to go platinum. Though not currently touring with Salt-n-Pepa, Spin remains an in-demand DJ, an ambassador for hip-hop’s classic era, and a strong voice in the fight against diabetes. She spoke to OffBeat from her home in Dallas.
