Explain who you are for those who may not know
My name is Jew-Buh.
Where you from?
Im from Houston, Texas. Northwest Side of town. Im a Nigerian-American.
How did you get your start in music?
I always loved expressing myself in poetic manner since 1st Grade. I actually had a conversation with one of my friends and they convinced me that I need to stop hiding my talent and just do it. Souncloud became my best friend. https://soundcloud.com/jewbuh
How long have you been making it?
It’s going to be a year in July. I’ve been writing music since 2013 I just never put it all together the way I am now.
Who are your influences?
2010 was a golden age of new hip-hop artists. My biggest influence is J.Cole but I am aware that if it wasn’t for Kanye there wouldn’t be half of the artists out right now. To name a few though Drake, Wale, Meek Mill, & Big Sean.
What motivates you?
My Dad motivates me. He came to this country from Nigeria with nothing but a dream. He made it successfully and always grinds hard to provide for his family. I want to be able to pay him back everything and more that he has given me.
What are you currently working on?
I’m working on a project called Rich in Spirit. That’s what my name means in the Igbo language. I have 3 songs out everywhere that are on “Rich In $pirit” I’m 6 songs deep.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see myself as a happy man, financially free and selling out shows across the world. Owning properties and solidifying myself as an artist.
What is your opinion on the current hiphop scene?
The hip-hop scene is CRAZY. There is so much talent everywhere. To the point that no ones who is next star. People say its dead but honestly people aren’t looking hard anymore. HIPHOP has a wide spectrum of artists. From auto-tune melodies to lyrical witty bars and story tellers and trap bangers. Whatever your looking for is there. We have become a lazy society that waits for a co-sign to get behind an artist. Hip-Hop is #1 because of the diversity of styles.
Anything else you would like to say?
My name Is Jew-Buh and I am an upcoming talent from Houston. If you haven’t heard of me just follow my life. We are the same. We are human. I express my life in art form. I’m in college trying to balance out school life and my dreams. Check out my music everywhere on all streaming sites. Thank you for the support! WE MAJOR!
