The syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast was founded while she was an undergraduate student at the Rutgers University – New Brunswick campus in 1998 after serving as a co-host for the African New Dawn program under her mentor, Alvin Fair, and being one of the original co-founders of the Rutgers University Student Community of Hip-Hop (aka RUSCH, the first Hip-Hop student organization at Rutgers University from 2000 – 2002) that helped line up Hip-Hop oriented shows & events on and off campus .

Along with co-host, fellow mix DJ and business partner Jon Pace (aka Ausar Ra Black Hawk, who came on as a part of the show in 2004), the weekly radio show & podcast exists to bring the Balance Back to Black Radio with having a strong focus on bringing a diverse mix of independent and mainstream Black Music (Hip-Hop, Soul, Jazz, Reggae, Rock, Funk, House & more) from all over the world along with relevant commentary, news and guest interviews to the international listening masses.
