Courtney Leonard is a child of urban Boston. Born and raised in Mattapan, she took the METCO bus to high school in Newton, but her heart always belonged to the city. When she was done in the classroom at Newton North, she would head home to her other teachers: KRS-One, Kurtis Blow, Chuck D, and all the other giants of early Hip Hop. Courtney couldn’t get enough of them. For her, it was hip-hop all day, every day.
Courtney B’s affectionately known on the airwaves in Boston, continues to be a woman in perpetual motion as she balances her career goals and aspirations with the mission to make a difference in the lives of as many young people as possible!
