She was born Nikki Shamdasani in Hong Kong to a Japanese mother and an Indian-Hispanic father, but was raised in Los Angeles, California. In her rebellious teen years, she was a graffiti artist who often went to jail. She has often spoken on her rebellious years in many interviews.
“ My friends first showed me about tagging and picking up a marker and hitting up the streets. I was tagging on the benches and then next thing you know I was tagging on the bus. It was just addicting, like a drug. Instead of me getting into drugs, I got into tagging. I loved getting my name up. I would get on the bus and go, “Oh there goes my name again.” Next thing you know every bus I took I was up on it. I got in a bus crew called RTDK, it was the most known bus crew…but nowadays, I don’t think that kids should be doing that because you’ll pay for it eventually. ”

“ They did a huge investigation. They came and raided my house. They found like 300 spray cans. I was so young…I had a tag in my phone book with the word Tribe and my own phone number next to it. So I burned myself. It was a misdemeanor, so they gave me probation, no big deal. Slap in the hand, whatever. Then I just kept going. That didn’t stop me at all. So I kept bombing and bombing and bombing. Eventually I got caught in the act. They let me go that night because those cops didn’t know who I was. But then the next day an anti-graffiti squad found out who I was and they started a bigger investigation. Two weeks later they came and raided my pad again. It was a huge raid with at least 20 police cars. They took me in and they gave me a $100,000 bail. ” —DJ Lady Tribe
