Born and bred in Boston, now residing in Baltimore, B.Eveready draws inspiration from wide-ranging influences, from Hip-Hop greats like Nas and B.I.G., to soul legends like Stevie Wonder, James Brown and Marvin Gaye, and everything in between. With family roots in Barbados as well, his music melds the hood and posh places.
Committed to excellence, and meticulous about the music he makes, newcomers can reference Jay-Z, Common, Gangstar, Tupac, Wu Tang, The Roots, Kanye West, and Black Star (Talib Kweli + Mos Def) to better understand B., his foundation, and his motivation. The sound is a blend of that old school knock, social commentary, and punch lines that'll make you hit the rewind button more than once.
A graduate of Carnegie Mellon University and a sincere Christian, B's intelligence & faith permeates his music & informs his perspective on the world. In his productive career, B.Eveready has recorded or performed with The Last Poets, Cappadonna (of the Wu-Tang Clan), Talib Kweli, Jin the MC, Skyzoo, Torae, Red Cafe, Emilio Rojas, Chen Lo, Chaundon, Comp (formerly of Def Jam), Sean-Toure (Fat Beats), Daru Jones (drummer for Jack White & The Stripes), Huli Shallone, Gene Stovall, Scholarman, Breeze Embalm, Mike Body and more.
The tracks from his 2008 "C.P.T." Mixtape, have been downloaded over 10,000 times, and 2011's The "Guns & Butta" EP/Mixtape, 2012's "A Cold Summer's Day" EP, compilation album "#INeedAManager" (2012), the "#GrindSeason" EP (2015), 2017's "#INeedAManager: The Re-Up", and 2018's "#GS2" EP have all been well received by critics and fans alike. B is now focused on dropping his new project, The "#OutGrind" Mixtape. B. wouldn’t be an emcee if he didn’t consider himself one of the greats. He is working to emulate what the legends before him have done. Whether he reaches that point is in God’s hands, but that’s what he’s shooting for. Once established, he hopes to write for and develop the next generation of artists. With B., what you see is what you get. The music tells you everything you need to know.
Welcome to the future.
