Artist Information

Blueboy’s a man of few words (unless he’s rapping) and a lot of action. He keeps it real at all time and that’s the only type of people he will align himself with. He is THA REALEST lyricist you never heard but is waiting to hear, promise. His style is best describe as a lyrical storyteller that invokes thought and incites crowds with substance filled songs that deal with real life emotions, thoughts, and dreams. He first started rapping during the summer break between 8th and 9th grade after breaking his leg and not knowing if he was going to be able to play football anymore. He was born in Hiram Clarke (Houston, TX) in Oct.’82 where he was the youngest of 5 and lived for 8yrs but after personal hardship he moved to Galveston, TX in Dec.’90. After graduating from Ball High School in 2001 he moved back to Houston and enrolled at Texas Southern University where He major in Electronic Engineering from 2001-2004. While attending school his girlfriend at the time became pregnant with their beautiful daughter and suddenly school was pushed to the side in favor of finding a job to support her. Working a regular job was fine for the time but he wanted and still wants so much more for himself and his daughter. The living check to check thing wasn’t cutting it anymore so shortly after she was born in ’04 he started back writing and recording new songs with a more defined sense of direction and greater desire to become the greatest rapper ever. And before it’s all said and done Blueboy will be.

Blueboy’s current single “See About It” which was self released in the first half of 2012 has received national support from varies dj crews including the Core Djs, Hustle Squad Djs, GO Djs, Fleet Djs, 704 Djs, Drum Squad Djs, Vamplife Djs, Hood Approved Dj’s, BoothPimps, New Music Djs, Definition Djs, ect. which in turn garnered radio play from stations such as Shade 45, Power 92(Chicago, IL), 92Q Jams(Baltimore, MD), WiLD 104.9(Oklahoma City, OK), Foxie 105(Columbus, GA), 97.9 The Box(Houston, TX), Soul 92 Jams(Rocky Mount, NC) & Club 93.7(Flint, MI). The momentum behind Blueboy’s single “See About It” resulted in it peaking at 131 on the Urban Charts…thus far.

On Beat With BMX Beesy



b1Atlanta is now tagged the Hollywood of the south.  With entertainment at an all time high, it’s not hard to miss the diamonds in the ruff in a saturated game of “let’s make a deal”.  That’s unless you stand out….and I didn’t have to go too far for my search of a diamond in the ruff when I went on my search for INK RapStars in Atlanta, my hometown.  Ink is everywhere, and some of your hottest rappers sport the hottest tattoos.  But “hottest” isn’t good enough, because there’s so much talent…you have to be more specific.  You have to think outside the box and pull from it something special, magnificent  and unordinary.  Well, it’s not everyday that you see a BMX/Rockstar/Swag Coach.  Now, top that one.  I’d love to introduce the world to BMX Beesy B..

Who is Dub Bangem?


It is his music and his fight to get better at his craft that keeps him going. Against all odds, Dub Bangem has prevailed  stronger and more faithful with each one of life’s crazy turns.  After being placed on Dialysis 5 years ago, Dub Bangem could have wrapped up his music career. Instead, he turned to his music and allowed the universal language to aid in his healing process.

His style is carefree and “feel-good” with a little bit of southern flavor sprinkled throughout. He is an artistic concoction of hard hits, raw lyricism, and  a little bit of Duval County (Florida).  When you hear the music, you would never guess that the man behind the tunes is currently on the waiting list for a new Kidney. Instead of  letting Dialysis cripple his career, he decided to let it motivate him.

Who is Dub Bangem, really?

BK: Out of everything in the world that you could have become, why a rapper?
dubDB: That’s actually two things. One, I am a writer. I write poetry and there are other things  that I  write as well. I like writing. Sometimes I have a hard time expressing my feelings. It’s just easier to write it down on paper. It just comes naturally to me. I have a God-given talent for making music. That’s the reason why I chose to be a rapper.

BK:When was the moment that you knew you were going to pursue a career in music seriously?
DB: It had to be when I hit high school High school. That’s when I was beginning to realize that I was really good and people really started liking my music. That’s when I really saw that I had a talent.  From there on I thought, “Let me take this thing seriously”. I wanted to see where it would go from there. I knew what I wanted to do by the 9th grade.

BK: What do you strive to accomplish musically?
DB:   My goal musically is to take a risk and let everybody know about the talent that we have in Duval county. We have been slept on. music-wise, we have a whole bunch of talent here that’s real Florida. My goal is to let everyone know how talented Duval county is and to make some money and get away from the struggle. I’m tired of struggling, I want to make some good money and put on for my city

BK:How did you get the name Dub Bangem?
DB: My real name is Derrick Williams. My rap name was D Dub. I took the D off the D. Dub and I was just plain “Dub” for a minute.  Then I am from Duval county and our nickname is “The Bangem” so I just added the Bangem on the end.

BK: If you weren’t doing music, what would you be doing?
DB: If I weren’t doing music, I would most likely be in the field of journalism. I really wanted to write articles for a newspaper or even run my own paper at one time but I really gotten serious about my music so I kind of put that on the back burner. If  music doesn’t work out for me, I would definitely go into the field of Journalism and write for a Newspaper or even write books.

BK:Since being on Dialysis, how has that changed your life as an artist. How was Dub Bangem before vs. now?
DB: My performances are not as strong as they used to be. Different physical side effects that come with dialysis has affected that. The performances is what has really changed since being on Dialysis. On the other side, I have grown as an artist and my music has gotten better. I’ve learned how to make more music that people can vibe to. I’ve learned to affect the whole crowd verses one demographic.

BK: At any point, did you ever think of giving up did you ever seriously think about giving up on your music?
DB: I’ve been on dialysis for 5 years now. It had to be the second year that I was on dialysis. I had gotten really really sick. I had way too much fluid in my body at one time. I hadn’t had a treatment in like 5 days. I was on a respirator machine. It’s like I had checked out of here. I was doing really really bad. My dad had woke me up and wrote me off. No one thought that I was going to make it. At that point I thought that this was too much and that I didn’t want to do it. But when I made it through, it was like: I’m here for a reason. I felt like that was my calling to continue to do music. After that, I said that I would never let anything discourage me from making music ever again.

BK:How many projects have u released and what is your following like?
DB: I have release one mixtape. It’s called, “ My time is Now”. It did pretty good even though I didn’t sell them. I really just passed them out to let everyone know what time it was and who I was. I have a pretty decent following. It could be better. I have to create more visuals. People don’t get to see me enough. Because of the dialysis, I normally stay in the house most of the time when I’m sick or not feeling good. I am not able to network a lot as much as I should for me to grow my following. I am not seen a lot and that’s something that I have got to work on as well.

BK: What is the next move for Dub Bangem?
DB: I am currently working on my next mixtape. It’s called, “Taking what I deserve”. I’m working on the videos and promotion. I feel like the music is better. I plan to network more and do more shows. The goal is to be seen more.

BK: At the end of the day when everything is said and done, What do you want your legacy to be? How do you want people to remember Dub Bangem?
DB: I want  them to remember me as a real-cool laid back dude. I’m very goofy.  I like to laugh. I like to tell jokes and I like to have a good time. I don’t want people to think of me as a bad guy, i’m a good guy. I’m very kind-hearted. Everyone else that’s around me will pretty much tell you the same thing. I don’t start fights with nobody. I don’t have any beef with anyone. I’m just a cool, laid back dude that just loves making music.
