Eclectic Bay Area artist, a few words away from your heart.


"To bE! or not to bE! is the ultimate question. With a moniker that is as visually stimulating as his lyrical presentation, bE! is a hip hop artist that can not be boxed.

Hailing out of the San Francisco Bay Area, this Fremont native is a true modern-day storyteller. Unafraid to occupy his mark in the industry, bE! finds inspiration by making music true-to-life expression, that connects people through personal experience. Many of whom have felt this, live, as he's been moving crowds, performing around the greater Bay Area and West Coast.

A true expressionist and metaphorical mastermind, listeners can sense bE! is moved by eclectic musical influences and stays connected with underground artists from coast to coast. Many of the compositions he lays vocals to are original, live-instrument pieces. He's also spent some time performing and working with some amazing live bands.

Forever in tune with the pulse of reality, bE! "raps his heart out" with introspection and imagery. When asked why and how he can do what he does, his reply is as telling as the artist himself. “Music is an extension of life. I’m simply affecting the world by making art that is true to self.”

A poet, writer, and thinker, bE!’s content is sure to elevate thought, though that is not his goal. His pen will stop at nothing to express the rare breed of hip hop too often ignored. It just simply is. He is simply bE!"
