A hot new mixtape is hitting the streets, so be on the lookout
for DJ Chela's "The #1Product Vol 2" hosted by Mother Nature
and Shelly B. The mixtape features a slew of North Carolina
artists as well as bangers by Jean Grae, Saigon, Memphis Bleek,
Ali Vegas and other notables.
In her home stomping grounds of Durham, North Carolina, Chela
has been supported and pushed by several industry
heavyweights. She has recently opened up for The 5th Platoon,
dead prez, Remy Martin, and Saigon.
Chela is the Urban Music
Director for Duke University's WXDU in Durham, has the mixshow
"No. 1 Picks" every Monday night from 10pm to 1am and was also
a lead organizer for the 2004 Duke Hip Hop Conference. While
mostly focusing on Hip Hop, both current and old school, Chela
also incorporates other genres such as go-go, dancehall, soca,
and salsa into her sets.
Chela, a former resident of Nicaragua, heads to the Matagalpia
region this August for two weeks to represent Durham at the
centennial of San Ramon where she will be spinning with local
DJs in that area.
