B-SimmS is an artist who likes to believe there are not too many rappers like him and he may be right. The rapper is currently working on his debut album, “I Can’t Wait for my Payday” and that wait has been long just as it is been eventful.
The Houston, Texas native grew up in Hiram Clarke but got his first taste of hip hop from the West coast watching Snoop Dogg videos on MTV. In middle school, he began writing songs, but his friends did not find them good at all. Discouraged, SimmS stopped rapping altogether and found other interests including football, which he played all four years at Madison High School but still, could never shake the love for writing raps. At the end of his freshman year of high school he started to rap again and landed a gospel rap performance with the church’s youth rap organization, Crossword. It was SimmS’ first performance ever and got good reviews despite only remembering four lines. SimmS never performed again until he came to college, but during that time he still kept working on his craft. His passion allowed him to write everywhere including class, football locker room, Metro bus, and at work.
SimmS attended Texas State University in 2004 and continued his writing but did not get a performance until March 2005 when he performed for the talent show put on by the Black Student Alliance. He did good but still forgot the last two lines of his song and dropped the mic when he left the stage. It was the infamous performance that started SimmS signature dropping the mic and a marvelous live performance record.
SimmS continued doing live performances and eventually got his first recording program. Not long after that, in April of 2007 decided to drop his first mixtape Liquor Store Shades. After that, he dropped a mixtape each year: Lost My Mind (2008) Menace II Sobriety (2009), Too Fat for Skinny Jeans (2010), Smash Mouth mixtape (2011), and B.S. Heartbreak (2012). B-SimmS also found himself to link up with Hip Hop Congress on their Texas Statement mixtape series. Afterwards, B-SimmS linked up with long-time friend Ha-Style (Hanz Nobe) to drop B-SimmS vs. Ha-Style.
With all these accolades behind him, SimmS is still furthering his grind. Currently a grad student SimmS has performed in numerous shows and showcases in Texas places such as San Marcos, Austin, New Braunfels, San Antonio, and Dallas. Right now he is looking to book shows and features as well as seek a label to release his album.
