Bahamadia (born Antonia Reed) is a Philadelphia-born hip hop artist, a DJ who later became an MC. As an affiliate of the Gang Starr Foundation, she released her critically-acclaimed debut album entitled "Kollage" in 1996. The album featured production by Guru and DJ Premier of Gangstarr. "Kollage" was followed in 2001 by "BB Queen", an EP release.

Bahamadia is a respected lyricist in hip hop and is known for her silky, subdued monotone delivery. She has expressed a positive attitude toward globalism as an emerging trend in hip hop. For example, in a 2003 collaboration with little-known group the Sisters of the Underground on a track entitled "Global", she performs lyrics in the chorus which acknowledge Japan, Canada, Sweden, Norway, and Thailand, among other countries, for fostering vibrant hip hop communities, and Japan in particular for the dedication of her Japanese fans. She has recorded a number of bootlegs exclusively released in Japan.

Her reputation in North America has been enhanced by a number of highly regarded guest appearances on tracks by artists including Talib Kweli, The Roots, Jedi Mind Tricks and Planet Asia, and through her association with the Philadelphia hip hop collective Army of the Pharaohs.

Her latest album, "Good Rap Music", features an impressive array of guest appearances, and was released in 2006.
