Heather B. Gardner (born 1971) is an African American hip hop artist from Jersey City, New Jersey. She is billed in all projects as Heather B., and is most well known for being a cast member on The Real World: New York, the first season of MTV’s reality show The Real World. One of two African American roommates, Heather was portrayed as a friendly, intelligent young woman with aspirations to become a rap superstar. She forged an unlikely friendship with naïve Alabama girl Julie; a memorable early clip from the season has Julie asking Heather if she wears a beeper because she is a drug dealer.
Gardner was affiliated with the rap group Boogie Down Productions, and was signed to Pendulum Records in 1995. In 1996 she released her first album, Takin’ Mine. The single “All Glocks Down”, an anti-gun violence anthem, received moderate radio play, as did the follow-up single “If Headz Only Knew.”
In 1997, Gardner signed with MCA Records and in 1998 she released a two track single called Do You.
Outside her music career, Gardner has appeared in various projects and television specials related to The Real World. She also appeared in the film The Wedding Video directed by Real World alum Norman Korpi, and a 2005 television commercial for America Online anti-virus software.

The first single is “The Game Don’t Stop” produced by BDP Productions member, Kenny Parker. Additional production on the summer 2010 release is coming from Pete Rock and Large Professor.
