Lawanda McFarland, known professionally as Wanda Dee, is an American hip hop artist from the Bronx, New York. McFarland began her career as a teenager, becoming the first female hip hop DJ as the protege of DJ Kool Herc, who gave her the stage name Wanda Dee. She was eventually introduced to Afrika Bambaataa, who inducted her into his Zulu Nation. In 1984, she appeared in the film Beat Street alongside her boyfriend/business partner Richard Sisco. Dee received many offers to go on tour while Sisco did not, contributing to the pair breaking up. At the time, Dee had met Eric Floyd, her future husband and manager. Floyd encouraged her to switch from the turntables to the microphone and in 1986, she released the single, “Blue Eyes”, produced by British hit factory Stock Aitken Waterman. In 1989, she achieved commercial success with the single “The Goddess/To The Bone.” The publication of a full album was hampered by disagreements with Tuff City Records, Dee’s distributor at the time. In 2003, Dee formed her own record label, Goddess Empire, and released her debut album, “The Goddess Is Here.” That same year, she also participated in the Zulu Nation’s 30th anniversary performance.
