Biography

Philadelphia native Bahamadia has lived and breathed music for years. 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.

While Bahamadia has been consistently active in the recording industry since
her introduction in 1996, she has (amazingly) only two solo album releases
to her credit. First was the now “classic” EMI Records release “KOLLAGE”, which she described as “various sound blends and textures of my interpretation of hip-hop music that encompasses topics of importance to me.” “KOLLAGE”, which was the first LP ever written/co-produced entirely by a female hip-hop artist, generated the 1996 SOUL TRAIN LADY OF SOUL award nomination for BEST NEW R&B/RAP ARTIST.
