In 1998, as a member of street promotions team in Miami, FL, Bullet quickly learned that men rarely saw her as an equally-capable peer. No matter how she longed to interact with label reps and DJs; or to be in the streets “snipping,” the somewhat perilous (and barely legal) task of decorating light poles and street signs with promotional posters, Bullet was expected to be seen and not heard, speak when she was spoken to, smile pretty and hand out flyers. She knew there was more to it than that. What her colleagues at the time failed to realize was that this was not a hobby. While most girls her age at the time where interested in the limelight, she was interested in a career. She took advantage of how much she was underestimated as an opportunity to truly study the game. Within a year, she co-founded An’ What?! Public Relations and Promotions with a like-minded young lady. Less than a year later, she and her partner had fully commanded the respect of the male-dominated Miami music scene. Both young women used this first foray into entrepreneurship and the relationships they created to catapult their careers to the next level. Combining her love for music, her support of the game and understanding of the fundamentals of promotions, it would only be a matter of time before she decided to transform herself into a DJ, the underrated profession which has always been a vital part of Hip-Hop. DJ Lady Bullet started out as a frequent guest personality on various pirate radio stations in and around Miami. While doing so, she constantly fought to find a mentor who would take her seriously in her desire to become one of the best. After all, at the time, Bullet had never touched a pair of turntables. And female DJs were a rare commodity, especially in the South. Still she kept at it, through the ridicule of doubters who still felt she should be happy with the position of being a pretty face in the crowd. By 2001, DJ Lady Bullet was made. She started out co-hosting a local radio show, which she also used as a vessel to showcase her mixes. Before long, she Bullet landed a spot as a veejay on the Video Mixx show on local television station WFUN-TV Channel 48. From there, she took it to the clubs, spinning at venues around the city and up and down South Beach. Just as she was starting to establish herself in the game, Bullet was faced once again with an obstacle which her male counterparts can only imagine: balancing a career in Hip-Hop with being a single mother. But this is a task for which she was more than ready, and after taking a few months off to take care of her newborn son, DJ Lady Bullet came back stronger than ever. Within less than a year, she was back behind the ones-and-twos keeping crowds motivated in the clubs. She soon landed a position as a mixshow DJ and radio-personality at different underground stations in the Miami-Fort Lauderdale market.
