So, what would five would you pick if you had to choose only five?

Did you give up cuz no one answered? LOL...

Five most influential shejays:
1.  Bert Lockett:
The first female DJ used to be mistakened as a man because she used to wear her hair short, a tie and a jacket. She rocked Ernie's Bar in New York in 1970. She was also the first disco female DJ.
2. Sweet P: First female to scratch- taught by the legendary Father of Scratch himself, Grand  Wizard Theodore.
3. DJ Shortee: With whom I'm incredibly lucky to be friends with, this woman is the Queen of Scratch with a lot of firsts under her belt: first and only female 'Power Mixer' on LA's Power 106FM, first female to produce and teach an instructional DJ DVD series, only female ever to produce a solo turntablist album and first female to produce a battle record. With her hubby, Faust, they make Urban Assault and are constants in the Drum N Bass scene.
4. DJ Lady Sha: Another friend, yeah, yeah I know BUT, these women are highly gifted and deserve the accolades (as well as being super cool!). Sha is the first female DJ to win Best Matching at the Winter Music Conference.
5. Kuttin Kandi: An activist, a poet and definitely a DJ, Kandi is the first woman to make it to the USA finals of the DMC  World DJ Championships, not an easy feat in the male-dominated DJ Battle scene. 

Those are my DJs...and I'm working on a femcee list, so you'll just have to wait for that ;p
