DJ Spinderella, born Dee Dee Roper, is one of hip-hop’s most enduring pioneers. As the longtime deejay for hip-hop duo Salt N Pepa, Spin has had a front row seat to many of hip-hop’s most historic moments. Her turntable skills have allowed her to travel all over the world, both with the rap duo and on her own. DJ Spinderella stopped by the Tom Joyner Morning Show to showcase her skills.
“It’s been a lot of years,” Roper told The Tom Joyner Morning Show. “It’s a lot of female deejays out there that are inspired by what I’ve done. And of course there are a lot of female MC’s out there inspired by the group Salt N Pepa so we just did what we had to do.”
