Armed with positive lyrics, clever metaphors, and a polished flow, South Bend hip-hop artist, B-Phraze, is on a mission to “Be A Light Through Lyric”.
From overcoming a severe speech impediment as a child to earning a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications from Tennessee State University, it’s only natural for B-Phraze to pen lyrics that instill hope, belief, and the confidence to overcome life’s obstacles. This is evident on his latest song titled “#iBelieve“, which was recently named as a Grand Prize Award winner in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest.
In 2012, he was a headline artist at the “Megakidz” Conference in Dallas Texas, hosted by Bishop T.D. Jakes. That opportunity inspired him to write and produce a children’s hip hop CD titled “Remember That“, which focused on such topics as bullying, self-esteem, and true friendship. He is currently constructing a children’s book based off of that album. His YouTube channel has nearly 5 million views largely due to the success of rap parody videos that he performed with cousin and fellow rap artist “Million“. The success of those parodies landed the duo an agreement with Comcast On Demand and also delivered B-Phraze the leading role in the pilot cartoon series “Hip-Hop Fables“.
In addition to spreading his positive message at colleges, churches, juvenile centers, and community events nationwide, his music can also be found on various internet platforms such as iTunes, Rhapsody, Spotify, and more. In a genre saturated with lyrics that glorify drugs, violence, and negativity, B-Phraze hopes to continue on his mission to “Be A Light Through Lyric”. -bphraze.com
We at 16 Bars were undecided with which video to post, since both songs are ultimate favorites. So, we posted them both! “Left Hand Material” is something super special for the virtuous women out there holding it down for the Kingdom, while “iBelieve” is so inspirational and uplifting. It only made sense to share them both, Injoy!
