Dimples D

Share This Post

Dimples D was born Crystal Smith.

The only real noteworthy portion of this female rapper’s brief career is the party pleasing single “Sucker DJ.”

The real importance of the track, other than its obvious dance qualities, is that is not only a dis on sucker deejays, but Dimples also talks up her producer Marley Marl.  This is one of the tracks that help Marley put his name on the map. The song was heavily sampled on Marley’s later cuts “The Marley Marl Scratch”, “He Cuts So Fresh” and “The Man Marley Marl”.

“Sucker DJ’s” was remixed and re-released as a pop record in 1990 across Europe using the “I Dream Of Genie” theme tune that is also sampled on “Girls Ain’t Nothing But Trouble” by DJ Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Price.
