LADY B is a Hip-Hop legend and the undisputed “Queen of Hip-Hop”. Starting out in hip hop fresh out of high school, hanging out at Kim Graves (Philly’s top night club at the time) she befriended the late great DJ, Lawrence Levan. Lady B became the first female MC on wax when she recorded the historic rap classic, “To the Beat Yall” in 1979. Since then, she’s been the recipient of many awards and accolades. Her pioneering radio show “Street Beat” was one of the first radio shows in the world to prominently feature rap music. Her sheer presence at events secure total Hip-Hop credibility. Almost by herself, Lady B introduced rap music to Philadelphia. While at Power 99fm she had to fight to play groups like Public Enemy. They were considered too controversial and too political for the radio at that time.” Armed with the popularity of Public Enemy and the push of Def Jam and Russell Simmons, Lady B finally convinced Power 99 to concede. Her loyal audience loves her. Lady B is a fighter and we need more fighters on the radio. On her Radio show on 103.9 WPHI, she spotlighted local artists by interviewing them on her show and playing their music. She would also find diamonds in the rough. Independent local records that pleased her ear would actually find themselves in rotation. To win in radio, you have to stay ahead of the game. If nothing else, Lady B is a winner! She is now broadcasting for the premiere satellite radio entity –Sirius Satellite Radio. Lady B received the prestigious Philly Urban Legend Award in 2002 as a pioneer in Rap Music, the World Renowned Entertainment,” Role Model of Excellence Award, two Lifetime Achievement Awards (including the Douglass” Jocko”Henderson award) and is also listed in VIBE magazine’s History of Hip-Hop as “Maybe the most influential female in hip- hop radio history.”
