And so music it was; alone in the competitive world of A-List players Bubby’s positive attitude and drive to learn and succeed soon led him to real connections and acceptance from one world class artist to the next. Bubby went on to work with Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Lupe Fiasco, Jhene Aiko, Tha Game, Kim Burrell, The Clarke Sisters, AI, EXILE the Second, Stevie Wonder and many others.

His first solo album hit in 2017; 1UP! Adventures & Quests Episode III chronicled his journey from Flint to LA.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
