It’s no secret that the hip hop industry is male dominated. Women—artist, producers and DJs—continue to face challenges in proving they’re able to stand on their own two feet alongside their male counterparts.
Bronx-bred DJ Jazzy Joyce help set a foundation for women in hip hop on the 1’s and 2’s. In the game since the early 80’s, Joyce has collected numerous numerous musical accolades. She’s deejayed for the HBO special, Russell Simmons Presents “Bad Girls of Def Comedy Jam,” Vh1’s Hip Hop Honors, hosted MTV’s “Sister for Hip-Hop and Soul Tour” with India Arie and other artists, and won a New Music Seminar DJ competition. She currently is the only female DJ in Funkmaster Flex’s Big Dawg Pitbulls Crew and deejays nightly for New York’s Hot 97 between 2 and 4 AM EST.
