B.D.U.B (Brilliance Derived Under Beats), 35, is a Raleigh-Durham, NC based Rapper/ Producer/ Recording engineer, musician and valued member of the City Live Media Group.  Born and raised in the DC area B-Dub grew up influenced by various music genres including Hip Hop, Funk, R&B, DC Go Go and Classical music. He discovered a talent for the piano at 8 years old and began classical training on the instrument.  At the same age he discovered a fondness for the Native Tongues collective which drew him into Hip-Hop.  Writing rhymes at 16 he realized he didn't have original beats so he started making them.  After high school he went to Durham, NC as a student at NC Central University honing his craft as rapper, producer and musician.

B.D.U.B's production style incorporates a mixture of lush and melodic chords, live instruments and samples, hard hitting percussion and thumping bass lines.  Production influences include DJ Quik, Curtis Mayfield, EL-P and DJ Premier.

Lyrically Dub's style and penchant for word play and witty punchlines matches the complexity of his musical arrangements.  His style is influenced by rappers such as Common, J.Cole, the Hieroglyphics and Nas as well as elements of storytelling narratives and raw, battle ready lyricism.

Not limited to just the recording studio B.D.U.B is also an accomplished videographer having produced, written, directed and edited television shows, tv commercials, music videos, short films and scored a few independent films.  He has worked with numerous artist including Camp Lo, Big Daddy Kane, Organized Konfusion, Akinyele & Jungle Bros.
