Spinderella Blasts Lil Wayne For DJ’ing on New Year’s Eve

Kanye West and Lil Wayne tried their hands at deejaying on New Year’s Eve and Salt-n-Pepa DJ Spinderella disapproves.

Spin took to Twitter to express her disgust for rappers getting on the wheels of steel, saying they’re not taking the artform seriously and it’s an insult to the culture.

“First DJ Ak-47 (Alicia Keys) and now DJ wih wih wiggity Wayne?” Spinderella tweeted out to the masses. “WTH who’s next? It’s disgusting. Record sales down…become a Dj? FOH. Djing is just a ‘trend’ now. Artists jump on the bandwagon cause it’s the ‘in’ career move. What about real Djs that ‘bleed’ this culture?”

Spinderella even went as far as to say that she used to rap, but would never diss herself and the art by claiming to be an MC.

“I rapped on a few joints back then…and was dope at it, but never claim to be a ‘rapper,’” she continued. “BTW…I do lessons for anyone who wants to learn. But we startin ground ZERO.”

After getting an ample amount of backlash due to her statements, Spindeezy got back on her Twitter to further explain herself.

“DJ = Disc Jockey: one who spins discs on a machine to play music… TJ = Technology Jockey: one who utilizes technology to play music,” she added. “Now, ima DJ and a TJ…and there’s nothing wrong with ‘either’ but the word DJ is being used too loosely…this defines it for me. You don’t like what I’m tweeting the UNFOLLOW button is right there!! Christ…” —Jakinder Singh

    I’m sure these artist’s are not *becoming* DJ’s (or TJ’s). They all merely DJ’d parties recently. I don’t think it’s a major career move for either of them…

    She just mad she was home on new year’s eve and not being paid to dj. she need to sit her old ass down and shut the phuck up. she was barely in salt n pepa… and on top of that she was a replacement… meaning… she ain’t the original spindarella

    • GET UM

      Hahahahahah!

  • Loves real DJS

    I was going to comment but I see Phuck Dat Hoe already preached the Gospel.

    Spinderella cant dj (original spinderella di the work) & shes also a failed rapper. *she did a horrible song with big daddy kane that FLOPPED*

    No one booked her on New Years Eve because nobody cares. if Wayne & Kanye didnt DJ, she wouldve still been at home trying to make friends on twitter.

    In light of her failed career, on this one, I won’t shoot the messenger.

    NEWSFLASH!!!!!!

    I actually agree with shorty a little. Ok, erase the fact that my 6 year old nephew could probably murder shorty on the turntables (if she even uses them anymore). But she does have a point.

    Having appreciation for the artform is different than being an actual DJ. DJing is difficult and there are a lot of rules involved. And it’s a craft that’s master after years and years of successfully applying your craft in the party setting.

    Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Alicia Keys, and several others may be decent DJs. But the fact that they are all now on some “It’s my turn to rock the club” type ish makes them seriously suspect. Was Wayne doing this with the “Hot Boys”? Was Kanye cutting on “The College Drop Out”? Seems like when they’re on the come-up and trying to make THEIR OWN money they won’t risk sounding wack on the ones and twos. But once they’ve made it to a certain status, they can sh*t on the artform on some novelty ish.

    Spinderella is as booty as they come to me. But on this topic, she’s dead on.

    IS THIS GOING TO BE THE NEW TREND FOR 2012!! WHY ALL OF A SUDDEN ALL THESE OLDER ENTERTAINERS ARE GETTING MAD AT THESE NEWCOMERS. IT IS CRAZY!!! WHILE I GOT RESPECT FOR SPINDERELLA SHE REALLY NEEDS TO CHILL. FIRST LIL KIM ( WHOM I AM A FAN OF) NOW HER. JUST LET IT BE IT IS ALL ENTERTAINMENT IT IS NO PATENT ON HIP HOP. JUST GET YOUR MONEY AND LET THEM GET THEIRS!!!! BECAUSE EVENTUALLY ARTISTS LIKE ANDRE 3000 AND SCARFACE WILL EVENTUALLY RESURFACE BECAUSE THE TIGHT JEANS ERA WILL RUN OUT.

    Alicia Keys only DJ’d one time & she was just having fun with Swizz who is a DJ! The others were just having fun too. No one is having a career change & coming after her money. She needs to hush!

    In all honesty, paid dues is paid dues (and as a DJ, she’s a veteran no matter how good she may or may not be). Does it matter if she first string or second string for Salt & Pepa? I watched Erykah Badu get paid a ridiculous amount of money do “DJ” an event and was thoroughly buggin’! I stood by and watched Nick Cannon “DJ” an event and it hurt me to my core. Not just because I know he got paid 5 figures and didn’t even come close to “gettin down”, but I know how long I’ve put in at this profession and without the celebrity name, I won’t see that in a night, yet will put folks in a headlock! Spin has a very valid point. These folks are making low to mid 5 figures with a laptop full of music, a name and very little skill/talent while veterans at the craft (working on NYE or not) are continuously being passed by like the Pharcyde! It’s highly disrespectful…and for the record, this is not coming from a bitter place as I’m making a pretty good living at this. Her point is very well taken!
