Dimples D

Real Name:
Crystal Smith
Profile:
Sucker DJ's (I Will Survive)" by Dimples D. was one of Marley Marl's first successes, a hip-hop one-shot that made little noise upon release in 1983 but charted across Europe when a remix was released seven years later. Born Crystal Smith, she was selected to voice the track by Marl, a New York DJ and aspiring producer. It was released on the Party Time label in 1983, one year before Marley Marl's breakthrough on Roxanne Shanté's "Roxanne's Revenge", one of many answer records on UTFO's "Roxanne, Roxanne". The track was often sampled by Marl himself, and radically reworked in 1990, with the addition of a sprightly sample lifted from the I Dream of Jeannie theme song that earned it chart success in Europe.
