Meet Deshone Busby is B.V.M

Today we’d like to introduce you to Deshone Busby.

Hip_Hop Artist B.V.M. (Black.Vmerican.Male) was born in Lynnwood, CA and raised in Los Angeles. His father was a gangbanger from “Watts Grape Street” and his mother was a Jehovah’s Witness. Immediately B.V.M. (pronounced BAM) saw the dichotomy of life. Two people with such a drastic juxtaposition of reality and perception of life.

BAM was constantly moved around as a young boy. His mother constantly trying to find an environment where her talented son could thrive and not get lost in the negativity that caught so many young black men in its net.

Music was always a part of BAM’s life, something his family recognized early in his youth. After graduating from Samo High BAM began hosting shows including acts like ‘Tha Dogg Pound,’ ‘Kurupt’ and ‘Roscoe.’ BAM has been hosting shows for Green Heights and Youth Centers while he was still in school. BAM has been in training to be a Hip-Hop Artist almost his entire life.

Urban myth or not they say BAM started ‘free-styling’ from the time he could talk. He used to learn entire passages from hip-hop songs on the radio. As a young man BAM’s Pastor, Pastor Garrett, prophesied that BAM would be a Musical Prodigy speak to many Nations with his message.

Born February 22nd, 1991 under the Pisces sign, B.A.M.’s name speaks for ALL PEOPLE, not just African-Americans. He speaks for anyone who can’t speak for themselves. Through his own personal experiences and stories from family and friends BAM tells the TRUTH through his lyrics and music.

BAM’s mission is to break through the barrier of ‘mumble rap’ to ‘True Art.’ BAM is not just a rapper, he’s an Artist. He can write in many different genres and has a wide variety of musical knowledge inspired by Bob Marley, Queen, The Fugees, The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Notorious B.I.G., 50 Cent (Curtis Jackson) and of course Tupac.

BAM has always been interested in helping the community. Particularly the ‘youth’ who are at risk the most. He’s worked with Youth Centers and organizations to help clean up L.A. including “The Big L.A. Clean Drive” a few years back.

As for his music, BAM’s sound is pure 90s through 2000. The last ‘Golden Age of Hip-Hop.’ BAM has a modern storytelling style and behind every song there is structure and a message. BAM’s rhythms and words blend together to create a unique, profound sound for today’s global music audiences.

Has it been a smooth road?
I was constantly moved around as a young boy. My mother constantly trying to find an environment where my talent could thrive and not get lost in the negativity that caught so many young black men in its net.
