Disc jockey and rapper who became famous for her work with the New York-based hip-hop group Salt-N-Pepa. As a DJ, she co-hosted a program called The BackSpin on Los Angeles' KKBT 100.3 radio station.
Because she joined Salt-N-Pepa when she was just sixteen years old, she had to ask her parents to sign paperwork granting her permission to tour with the group.
She opened a beauty salon in late 1997 ahead of Salt n Pepa's final album titled Brand New.
Her real name is Deidra Roper. In 1992, she and NBA player Kenny Anderson became parents to a daughter named Christy.
She appeared in the 1996 film Kazaam starring Shaquille O'Neal.
