B-Daht
Weekdays 6am - 10am
 
 
 

1. What City/State was Daht born in? St. Louis, Missouri

2. What's Daht's favorite City in the United States? Miami - but it's got to be South Beach

3. What was Daht's nickname in High School? 4 Eyes. Mr. Thick Glasses. I had THE thickest glasses in the WORLD - not just the State or Country, but the WORLD! Guiness Status.


So I was born in St. Louis, MO., the “Show Me” State. My mother married when I was 5 and by the age of 11 we had relocated to 4 different cities and about 6 different schools. We finally settled in Greensboro, NC where I attended Mendenhall Middle School and graduated from Grimsley High School in 1997.

I worked a variety of jobs for the next 3 years, ranging from: Sears Credit Central, McDonald’s, Sonic Drive-In, Wal-Mart, TRAC Solutions and other street entrepreneurial ventures. Several run ins with law enforcement, just a lot of rebellious acts. Then Mother, who was in her 2nd marriage, gave me an ultimatum:

“You will go to college, or you get your own place; either way, you have to get the hell out of my house!”

Still not wanting to “grow up”, I decided I’d just go to Winston Salem State University and THEY could baby-sit me for 4 years. The BEST decision I ever made. Going to college allowed me to meet people from all walks of life. I learned how to talk to all types of people, more importantly; I learned to listen to others. I also learned the importance of having a strong following, and I realized I was a funny guy. I began to host shows on campus, and pretty soon I was a very “known” person on campus – dubbing myself: “The Campus Celebrity”.

It was time to graduate from college. 6 years later, I had become a MAN. I knew entertaining is what I wanted to do with my life. I knew I HAD to make people laugh some kind of way, as my profession. I was doing stand-up from time to time, but it wasn’t my forte. I needed to do an internship in order to graduate from WSSU, so I applied for an intern position at 102 JAMZ. After a month in, I had made everyone in the building smile at least once. That was my goal; to familiarize myself with EVERY person in the building. Not just those responsible for hiring and firing- everyone.

You have to understand something: You’ll NEVER have to tell the person “hiring” how great of a person you are if he’s already been told by everyone around him.

On the Wild-Out Wake-Up Show the funny guy Amos Quick was moving on to The School Board, and there was a void in the “Funny Department”. Insert B Daht here. I introduced myself to the Triad through the Prank Phone Calls, using such characters as: Lil Prizin, Marquuus Pattin, Marcus Pattin Sr., Pimpin, Markis BGZ and other random ideas. They were a hit! Eventually B Daht was asked to stay on long term and I have been privileged to be an Employee for the People for 5 years now.

The Pranks have evolved to more characters: Joey Z’Gonna, Kubaht Kahn, & Slo Lil Boi Tell’Em. I’ve been on Maury, In Allhiphop.com, had the privilege of performing at SuperJam, Cast in a movie “Wigger”, and the ride doesn’t stop!! I appreciate the support of all the people that listen and have given me the privilege to entertain them over the years.

There's nothing I love more than my precious son JJ, but working with the 3LiveCrew is a close second! I've been given the nickname "mama of the mornings" because I keep the boys in line... a challenge I'm always up for.

I grew up listening to 102 JAMZ. Every morning I tuned in while getting ready for school... I laughed with, argued against and loved the personalities on the morning show - I felt like I knew them. I especially took a liking to Afrika, the female personality on the show. She was so cool and witty. I wanted to be just like her. It was my love for radio (and admiration for Afrika) that prompted me to seek an internship with the hottest station in the Triad, during the summer of my freshman year at the oh-so awesome Winston-Salem State University. That was in 2007.

Fast-forward 7 years (a lot of hard work and some tears too) and I'm 1/3 of the best morning show in the world. Dreams really do come true. I live mine everyday.

Story about my road to radio:
Well I started back in 1999; Wow that has been ten years! Anyway, I was at 90.1 WNAA on the campus of the greatest school ever, North Carolina A&T. I loved it there! I met a lot of people and artists. I would like to give a big thank you to Mr. Welborne, and D. Cherie for giving me an opportunity. I started 2-5pm on Tuesdays and Fridays, doing the Traffic Jam. That was fun! I could play whatever I wanted, and I could say ALMOST anything! Anyway, I met up with Terrance J, and he kept stressing me to give an air check to 102 JAMZ. An air check is mostly what you sound like on the air. I had to break it down for my non-radio people! I finally did it, and I gave it to the Music Director at the time. I am not going to say his name, but he said "I will never work commercial radio". I was like damn, but it just motivated me to work harder. I built up relationships with people at 102 JAMZ thanks in large part to Showdown. I met Kevin Kaous, J-Flex, Capital J, Kyle Santillian, Big Boy, Travis Bond, Rob Swynga, and of course Terrance J. Eventually I got a call from Kevin Kaous and he told me to put in another air check. Then Tap Money heard it, and gave me my shot. I started 102 JAMZ in 2001, and I have been here ever since. I love it!

Three Questions:

What do I like to do?
I love to watch movies, play video games, basketball, and hanging out with my friends.

What is cool about working for 102 JAMZ?
Everything! I mean, you never know who is going to call you when you are on the air. And you never know what is going to happen around here. Something is always happening, and it makes it fun.

Who would I like to meet?
Denzel Washington, Jay-z, Barack Obama, Spike Lee, Halle Berry, and Will Smith! To me, those are strong African Americans. In Radio I would love to meet Howard Stern, Mike Francesa, Star & Buc Wild, Angie Martinez, Wendy Williams, Russ Parr, and Ed Lover.

She also landed appearances on BET's 106 and Park, The Carson Daly Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and the WB Morning Show.

Her drive for success encountered the introduction to what would become another career passion……radio.
