In fact, many influential musical scholars credit her as being one of the original MC’s to gain Philly international acceptance in the Hip Hop community in a major way. Initially a DJ, Bahamadia switched trades when MC’s such as Sha-Rock (Funky 4+1 More), Lady B, and Salt & Pepa entered the rap game. Becoming one of the most sought after lyricists on the underground scene, Bahamadia earned the respect that allows her to declare in freestyle verse, “I’mma rap fanatic… phenomenal at it a syllable savage written or off the cabbage this chick is bananas.” Her formidable rhyme skills, unceasingly honed since the earliest days of rap, and her progressive musical outlook, make her more than just an incredible MC. Bahamadia is an innovative talent acknowledged in various musical genres as a forerunner of tomorrow’s music.
