Having landed roles in 8 Mile and Hustle & Flow, Taryn Manning was already hip to the culture, but she didn't get on the decks until years later. Unlike other celebrity DJs, however, Taryn stuck with it and has been able to book gigs not because she is a known actress, but because she actually has skills.
