Chanel Dizzle: Much More Than Just A "Barre Baby"

Rocks Off was pretty much blown away by that video of angelic-looking YouTube user ChanelDizzle singing the dirty hits of members of the Screwed Up Click, which we posted about last week. So we decided to get in touch with her and find out if she had dreams of becoming a ghetto superstar, rolling foreign cars through the streets of Third Ward.

The Houston native, whose real name is Chanel Dror, is a senior in corporate communications at UT-Austin. She was in town for the last bit of winter break and to celebrate her dad's birthday. And when it comes to singing, she's got a long history.
