FTDUBBB (Fu*k The World) is a hip hop group from Cincinnati, OH, comprised of 3 members – Bishop, Feva & Gemini. Each have their own passions, but collectively bring an amazing and powerful burst of Hip Hop to the table! FTDUBB isn’t a fly by night one hit wonder, but rather a lifestyle.
MzExec: How long have you been in the industry?
FTDUBBB: I (Bishop) met Feva in 04 and he was, in my opinion, the best rapper I’d heard since Pac… He wasn’t workin with anyone and I was running a production company named “StreetBang.” so I initially linked him up with then super producer, Jey 9. After the underground release of Feva’s 1st solo project, “Fo Eva” the dynamic changed. In late 08, we formed FTW consisting of FEVA and Bishop. WE hit every open mic possible and gave away cds to anyone that would take one… Gemini began coming to shows with one of Feva’s brothers as an avid supporter… One night before a show, Gemini broke out into a freestyle that lit the room on fire and was instantly DUBBBED.
MzExec: Did you always know you wanted to be in the music industry?
FTDUBBB: Music has always been a part of our lives and making came natural… We may not have known it, but it was inevitable.
MzExec: Do you have your own label or are you signed to any label?
FTDUBBB: We have our own label… Dubbb Life Ent.
MzExec: What artists have had an impact or influence on you and why?
FTDUBBB: Several artists of several different eras, genre’s and backgrounds. Too many to name, but the feeling music gives someone is not restricted to anyone of those categories… Our music is meant to help enhance your experience, whatever it may be.
MzExec: What do you feel are your biggest strengths as an artist?
FTDUBBB: Connecting with our audience by making timeless music that people can relate too.
MzExec: What does music mean to you?
MzExec: How did your life as a child (and growing up) affect who you are as an artist?
FTDUBBB: Well, everything we’ve seen and been through has provided learning experiences, which have helped mold who we are as individuals.
MzExec: What’s next for FTDUBBB?
