#DXCLUSIVE: DJ Perly 1st Woman To Win National DMC DJ Battles

Although she was also the first woman to become the US Vice Champ in 2016, she feels like she still faces an uphill battle as a female trying to navigate the waters in such a male-dominated industry.

“From what I know and experienced in the past is that some people just don’t think that women can do what the guys can do,” she admits. “Some people just don’t want to see a woman kick ass and prove that women can do anything in this world. They’re just afraid.”

She adds, “Women are so underrepresented in not just Hip hop, but other genres of music. Some men — not all — see women as weak and frail, but in fact, [we] are truly the strongest. Women go through a nine-month pregnancy, and give birth to the future and next generations of game changers. And think about it, child birth hurts like hell and we still kick ass. I applaud all those women who fight day in and day out to show and prove that this world is not a man’s world, and women can succeed in male-dominated fields. Women have the power and strength to move the world in a positive direction. We all have that power.”
