Ironically enough, being a DJ was not something that she had originally planned to be. ou know, it started out just being a hobby due to my love for graffiti and hip-hop. I started out making tapes for my Walkman. And then that led to mix tapes for friends. And before she knew it, a real demand grew for her mixes. Thus, she began honing her skills by participating in the traditional path of competitions and throwing parties. In a field notorious for being male-dominated, DJ Lazy K was able to win a lot of support and respect from her hard-bitten male peers through her talent alone-not a surprise, considering how she once successfully battled against 28 guys in one competition!

Educated in Spain and Switzerland, DJ Lazy K came to New York and initially pursued a career in nursing. In the beginning, Lazy K would work at the clinic by day and moonlight at the clubs as a DJ at night.

When it became clear that she was making more as a DJ than a nurse, it became obvious that hip-hop was her true calling. And since then, there has been no looking back.
Several years ago, she was offered a track by 'this new hot guy' from Queens who was a protege of Run-DMC's Jam Master Jay.

That new guy was 50 Cent. 'I was the first one to put him on a mix tape,' says lazy k.
