Posted on September 5, 2006 by Jamie Slaughter
One of WASHINGTON, D.C.'s Own rising hip-hop stars is packing up and taking the metro area flavor to west coast. Rapper/producer R.E.U.B ., has been selected as a finalist in the SCION sponsored KING OF THE BEATS Competition, scheduled to be held at the world famous ROXY Theater in Los Angeles. On September 17th R.E.U.B. will compete head to head against the nations best-unsigned producers for a chance to be called KING OF THE BEATS, and put the metro on the map. There will be 3 regional battles held across the country, from Los Angeles, then to Atlanta, and finally in New York. Winners from each regional event will square off in New York City for the championship on November 4th. Some of the all-star judges include DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill, Dr. Dre and Pete Rock.
R.E.U.B. is a talented producer/artist on a mission to put the metro D.C. area on the map. His soulful beats have a feel good vibe similar to that of Kanye West, yet they still have a very raw edge to them, influenced by his favorite producer, DJ Premier. Still, influences and similarities aside, it's his metro flavor that sets R.E.U.B. apart from the rest. His goal is to make the metro sound a favorite of hip-hop fans coast to coast, DC to LA!
Following the KING OF THE BEATS COMPETITION in Los Angeles, R.E.U.B. will be back in the metro preparing for the release of his highly anticipated sophomore album: "INFACY-2-ADULTRY". Not only did R.E.U.B. produce the already critically acclaimed album, he also dispels any myth that artists from the metro can't flow with the best of them.
The D.C. beat smith is starting a movement that can't be denied. Listen for R.E.U.B. on the radio, look for him in the streets, and be ready for his beats to make the doors on your Chevy Shake. That's right, his first single Chevy Shake is already being played on satellite radio, and national radio stations from Washington State, right back home to Washington D.C.
