Def Jam Concert Photograph, 1986. Photo courtesy of Darlene Lewis.
This photo was taken 1986 at a Def Jam concert sponsored by Russell Simmons. In the picture are me, then Doug E Fresh (the HUMAN BEAT BOX) and Peaches Brown (Boxer Mitch Green’s girlfriend). This picture was taken backstage after I had interviewed Doug for the On Broadway TV show, which is the second hip-hop music video talk show ever produced. I was the first female host/producer or any hip-hop music video talk show circa 1985. Learn more about Hip-hop Before the Bling, which highlights my years as a model, lyricist, manager of recording artists and TV producer and videographer who archived the legends and pioneers of hip-hop before and during their fame.
