It's Not About The Shoes. Or Is It?

A lot of people dream BIG dreams, but few will do whatever it takes to make their dream come true.

R.E.U.B is one of the few.

"I put out an album in my area, completely produced by me, called Pair-a-Dice almost four years ago...That was the real start of the music movement for me. Before that it was just getting myself to that point.

He was born in Ghana on the 22nd day of the 11th month. He grew up in New York and Virginia but today R.E.U.B says he is everywhere "like VISA".

"I started rappin' a long time ago, went to College and did what I had to do there. Then I started getting serious with it {the rappin'}. I started producin' and I got a little bit of love on the radio in Richmond. From that I started producin' cats outside of my own area...I got somethin' placed with Tek of Smif and Wesson and I hope to place some tracks with some artists over at Roc-A-Fella, Dame Dash Music Group, So So Def, and Sony."

But producing and rappin' are not all that R.E.U.B is up to. He says that he considers himself a Producer, Rapper and - check it out --


Wouldn't it be Criminal to have control of the illest beats, the sickest emcees, and the hottest custom painted shoes on the east coast? It is criminal, and lucky for him, producer R.E.U.B. made bond. MADE-BOND being a group comprised of the MD/DC/VA Metro area's very best emcees and the Kick Game being the Custom painted shoes that are driving the streets crazy! MADE-BOND recorded a 24 track audio orgy over the instrumentals to 2005's biggest hits and remixed them to perfection. This is not just another group with another mix-tape: this is The Kick Game; flashy, loud, hardcore street hop. It's should be a crime to have a hustle better than Amway, and music more addictive than crystal- meth: and it is, so thank god these cats MADE-BOND.

A shoe designer.

He started selling shoes that were targeted right at the center of the Hip Hop universe, and he is quickly becoming known as the Producer/Rapper who is giving away his music with these custom painted shoes!

"One of my partners, Jon Bland, thought that the shoes would be a good idea. He thought that it would be a good segue... It's a hip hop thing - custom painted shoes -- so we figured somehow we could use we just wanted to rock some kicks like that anyhow."

They started doin up the shoes, sending them out to the stores and now they are, according to R.E.U.B "getting' a lot a love off it"!

In other words - the shoes are HOT!

Speaking of Hot, if you ask him what his particular weapon of choice is, R.E.U.B will tell you that it's HEAT because "I am able to make fire out of an MPC in just 2 hours."

In addition he says:

"I have played 100's of shows. I have rented out spots in DC and Northern Virginia to hold events...album release parties, shows, fashion shows. I won the Industry Standard Producers Show Case in May, beating some signed producers like Wu-Tang's Mathematics, and Chamillion.

"We are all about rockin' crazy stuff. Ultimately our goal is to use the shoes to jump off our music. We're giving away the music with the shoes. The shoes are a way for us to distinguish ourselves because I don't think there are too many people out there who are doing custom shoes."

Probably not. And likewise, there are probably not too many people who have his drive and determination

"Everyone says I'm like a mix between Puffy and Primo!"

I say that Producer/Rapper/Shoe designer R.E.U.B. is definitely an original.

R.E.U.B, my name, stands for -- Real Entreprenuer in the Undergroud Business of hip hop!

"I think it fits me perfectly."

R.E.U.B. will be in a fashion show at Furr Night club in D.C. on Dec.15th, not only with the shoes but also performing a song I did called "DO WHAT IT DO." That song can be heard at . R.E.U.B. raps second. The song will be featured on the next DJ DRAMA "Gangsta Grillz" mixtape.(national release).
