Today we’d like to introduce you to LaKebra, DJ Keebee Clark.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
At the young age of eight, I started performing in countless plays held at Baltimore’s Arena Players, Incorporated, which led to my love and affection for music. I began DJing at the age of 14. My neighbor Dj Lil Mic was and still is a DJ. He would allow me to mess around on the turntables; back then, it was actual vinyls, no advanced technology yet. We are talking 1994. Even before then, I would make my own mixtapes in my room recording over tapes.
I was known around the neighborhood as Lil Keebee the dancer. I didn’t take it seriously I would just play around but never could shake it. I think back then. Parents would drill you about a plan b for career sake. People sometimes cast their fears on you inadvertently. Especially when it comes to Entertainment and Arts. They always say, what’s your backup plan. I became a professional at in 2018. I left my teaching career at Baltimore City Public Schools to go full-time in 2019. I received my big break when I was asked to dj for The Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation in Atlanta, Georgia. From there it been up.
We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Yes, it has been so far! I feel blessed that my transition from being the life of the party to controlling the party has been smooth.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
They call me “The Blend Princess,” A female Dj born and raised in Baltimore. I specialize in blends, known to most as the dancing Dj. I get off the turntables and dance in the crowd. I’m most proud of that I’m living a dream was able to do a whole career change at 38 and sustain throughout a pandemic and truly achieve pure happiness.
What was your favorite childhood memory?
My favorite childhood memory would be… wow, it’s so many to choose from hmmm, I guess it would be performing and skating. That was my life I didn’t care about dolls, toys or learning how to do hair. It was the music for me.
