7 Fun Facts, The One-and-Only DJ Carisma Invites You to Vibe with Her!
1 Most memorable collaboration? “Most memorable was working on and releasing a record with Chris Brown and Dej Loaf. Chris is one of the greatest performers of our generation. He has such a beautiful and creative mind so it was such a huge honor for him to rock with little old me, the little Mexican girl from Santa Ana! It was mind-blowing.”
2 Future is female? “Equal respect and pay as our male counterparts no matter what industry it is. I think it is a long journey we have to go on, but I’m honored to be doing my part so my daughter and her generation will have way more opportunities.”
3 Best part of being a mom? “Having my daughter, Catalina has been better than any project, music or mix that I have ever done. She is the best thing I ever created, watching her grow into her own person is amazing.”
4 Next goals? “Just being known as one of the top Hip-Hop DJs of this generation! I am going to be a female DJ Khaled. Platinum records coming soon! I want to be someone who breaks barriers and leaves a legacy in Hip-Hop.
5 Philosophy on giving back? “I do a lot with my church in my home town in Santa Ana. I also love donating my time and any goodies I can get my hands on to kids events all throughout Southern California.”
6 The Young California movement? “It is going very strong; it gives artists a platform on the radio or higher levels of the industry. I’m so passionate about the West Coast and I know how important I am. It is my duty to bridge the gap for the streets. This network provides a platform for the introduction and evolution of new and emerging talent breaking out of the West Coast.”
