Since its inception in the seventies hip-hop has always been about fun, self expression and originality. These characteristics enabled the culture to span from New York City to a worldwide phenomenon. Over the years many artist and producers embraced these themes pushing the genre to new heights of creativity and originality. Those who have witnessed the culture evolve have a clear understanding of Hip hops past, its present and where to take it for the future. Enter B-Dub a Durham, NC based Emcee/Producer.

Inspired as a teenager by his large volume of cd's and tapes from artist like Common, Big Pun and Big L and producers like Pete Rock, DJ Premier and Timbaland B-Dub began rhyming and making beats.

Dub began making a name on campus as a vicious battle emcee and prominent beat maker.
