Born in San Francisco, Tamara Palmer dreams melodies, breathes beats and responds to bass. She plays the clarinet and the turntables, but not at the same time—though perhaps she should. A former editor at URB during its formative years, Palmer is also the author of Country Fried Soul: Adventures in Dirty South Hip-Hop, the first book on the market to celebrate Southern rap music. Despite this wonderfully digital age, she is a DJ still stubbornly clinging to vinyl. And while she enjoys taking prom-like pictures with rappers, she despises the burgeoning trend of adult prom-themed parties.
