As part of the West Philly Sound Crew [that she cofounded], Bahamadia was a house DJ in the early 80s. In the late 90s she hosted a hip hop radio show in her hometown Philadelphia… and in 2008 her performance made the stage at the WeB*Girls festival in Berlin become legendary (at least to me). Also, Bahamadia is the boss of her own hip hop label B-Girl Freedom.
