DJ Spinderella spent her formative years living in public housing in Brooklyn, New York, with her parents and five siblings.
Her family’s records were on a loop, as well as the music of DJs from outside the projects. She remembers the sounds of Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin and James Brown.
Spinderella counts these moments as deeply influential on her career as DJ and member of the hip-hop group Salt-N-Pepa.
The musician, 52, will bring her experiences to the National Public Housing Museum as both a curator and a board member. The museum, which will move to Chicago’s Near West Side in early 2024, is the first and only of its kind, the museum says.
