BB Roy aka“2B”Roy Albert Welch was born in Belize City, Belize and raised in Los Angeles, California. Every since BB Roy left Belize he has been performing his West Coast Reggae style this is a combination of Reggae, Dancehall, West Coast Rap lyrics on gangsta tracks and Dancehall/Reggae tracks. It all started in the late 80’s when young Reggae/Hip Hop sensation 2BRoy was ripping the mike at back yard parties and break dancing. Word started to spread about 2B when producer Andre Wilmore who was then working for Jumping Jack Records in Los Angeles, CA asked 2B Roy who was then BB Roy to meet him at the studio where he was working at to do a demo. Jumping Jack Records released the single “Finger Pon Me Trigger” which took off on the radio. The single was featured on the soundtrack for the movie Floundering. In late 1992 Andre took 2B Roy to meet a close friend name Giorgio who was then putting a Rap group together name Project X on his indie label G-Strings Records. Giorgio wanted 2B Roy to blend his West Coast Reggae Rap style with the other two Rappers Lad and Dap. 2B Roy bust his style on a single titled “Everyday Thing” which took off on the radio air ways, “we also did a video” said 2B Roy. While doing shows throughout California with the group 2B Roy was working on his solo album. By early 1994 BB Roy left the group and went back doing local live shows and club performances. 2BRoy performed live at the BoB Marley/Ragga Muffins Festival in Long Beach, CA 1997. 2BRoy started hosting and producing his music video T.V show “New Millennium Kulcha T.V” that aired on Time Warner Cable Public Access channel in Los Angeles; CA and Inglewood, CA. 2B Roy also worked street promotions with a cat name “Cheeks” who had his own promotion company called Opium Promotions. 2B Roy worked with Cheeks for two years and learned that side of the game. By 1999 A Nigerian by the name of Ade Adeyeo who was changing markets from East Coast to West Coast with his indie label Adex Records asked 2B Roy to manage his record store and direct the label’s Promotion and Distribution departments. 2B Roy said yes and started to execute all he had learned from Cheeks. 2B Roy worked for Adex Records as director of Marketing and Promotion until 2010 then 2B Roy took a break for a while to take care of some personal problems. While on his break word spread on the Compton streets there was a Youngman from Los Angeles/Belize busting West Coast Reggae flows on West Coast beats and Dancehall beats. This musical hype leak to D.J Slip Compton’s Most Wanted producer, who invited 2B Roy to the studio to appear on a few projects and mix tapes he was working on for C.E.O Big Dell DoGG’s indie label IV Life Records. This made the buzz in the streets grew for both 2B Roy and IV Life Records. In 2008 2B Roy was back in the studio doing a new album West Coast Reggae, with a new style he perfected called “West Coast Reggae”, Various Artist compilations with his self and crew and Mix tapes series . All this musical excitement to be release on 2B Roy’s Indie Label JAH BLESS MUSIC & FILM. “Don’t sleep on the “West Coast Reggae” representa”, said 2B Roy…………
