As one of the first DJs to play rap records on the radio outside New York, Lady B played artists such as Will Smith and Soulsonic Force at the start of their careers. In 1984, Lady B moved to Philadelphia's Power 99 FM and started the program The Street Beat, which ran until 1989. In 2002 she received the "Philly Urban Legend Award."
