BuBs is a 24-year-old Zimbabwean-born, London-based rapper. After losing is father in a car accident at 8 years of age, he spent the rest of his childhood and adolescence living with his mom and brothers before leaving home at 18. BuBs has been passionate about his music from a pre-adolescent age, although his first studio song was recorded when he was 13.
His influences range from old school hip hop to modern day tropical house. BuBs's debut project "The Cut Presents: Mtrlty" was released in August 2017, a month after his older brother was found dead in his apartment in Philadelphia, PA. He dedicated the mixtape to him. Much of his musical content deals with the self-conflict of wanting to change the world and simply wanting to enjoy it as it is.
