"Sleeping Giant"

With his drive and passion for the music I can only predict great success. The sharp lyrics and powerful beats make for an overall enjoyable innovative sound. The Sleeping Giant of Seattle. - Dj Scott E-P (TooChi Records) UK

"Opening act steals show from the Headliner!!"

On February 8th there was a Haiti relief concert that B.U.D. was asked to open for another local headlining act. After he performed the crowd was so crazy they stopped the show and said; "Give it up for the headlining act B.U.D."! - Kevin Gardner


B.U.D. released his first Street Grail mixtape in 2007-8 and his team sold over 2000 cds on the streets out of the trunk of their car. Been in talks with people from Kube 93.3 about doing an intro song for their nightime DJ, doing songs for his mixtape, and also getting my music played on their station which is the biggest in Washington. We are building a large network of college radio stations and DJs that will be playing our music as well!



B.U.D. will be releasing his 1st album "Chronic Illness" April 10th when he headlines the I Am Camille Rich Fashion & Music Tour at Amore club downtown Seattle.

After only a few dates prior to his album release B.U.D. has come to be known for taking over shows with his energetic performances.. Similar to a DMX he has been in the game for over ten years and it's all in his music. On songs like "Get By" B.U.D. wrote, rapped, and sung the hook which displays his all around capabilities. On "Ice Cold" or "Get Away" he rapped and wrote the hook for the singer showing his songwriting. B.U.D. is a complete artist.

His pre album "Street Grail" mixtape moved around 2000 units in only a few weeks.. Since then B.U.D. has most recently been asked to write songs for Kube 93.3fm and also appear on several of their mixtapes.

His influences are Tupac, Outkast, UGK, LL Cool J, Rakim, Ice Cube, etc. His melodic rap style combined with his level of lyrics bring a sound like none other. He also sings on most of the hooks, wrote all of them, and executive produced his entire album which really sets him apart! If given the opportunity B.U.D. has proven himself ready to move the crowd. Thank you!
