When you picture a rapper, you most likely would not picture Desiree Gallegos. Known as Dezy, she is 5’4 with a slender frame and short auburn hair, and a Hispanic vegetarian lesbian. Growing up in Albuquerque, she moved to Burbank when she was 7 and now considers herself a local. Covered in vibrant tattoos of Mother Earth, Dezy is reserved and doesn’t seem like the type who would get up on stage and rap:“This loco, I’m loca, chock a couple of folka.”
Sitting down with her for the interview, Desiree talks excitedly about her first EP, “Dream in Color, Dream in Rhyme,” coming out this summer, and about filming her first music video for the song, “White Girl Loud“ in two months. When she is not at the studio, or doing freelance work, she can be found at Pierce College studying as an English major. Dezy describes herself as: “Ambitious, passionate, loving, driven, and lively,” and I would have to agree. Big things are happening from this petite woman who has faced much adversity in a male driven rap world.
What are you currently working on?
"The EP. I have recorded five songs and the first couple were sort of rough drafts but now I have three songs that I really like. So, the plan with that is to hit different avenues and see what works with that. Have a final project that goes along with a couple of music videos, full package, website, music on itunes, Tunecore, and Spotify. Along with that, I'd like to get the music into the hands of people I love and care about."
