Born in Charleston, West Virginia, and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, B. Simm always had a flair for hearing the pulse of music in words and writing poems from grade school on. With an ear for finding rhythms in his lyrics, he became a rap battle champion at Eastern High School, later turning down a basketball scholarship to pursue his passion for songwriting. B. Simm’s first collection of work, Simm City, echoed through the music industry, leading to tours with artists such as Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, Bow Wow, Jim Jones, and Kalena Harper (formerly of Diddy Dirty Money).
Recently, B. Simm joined California-based label, Ethika Music, in the quickest recording deal they’ve ever signed, as both artist and songwriter. B. Simm also writes original music for local and mainstream artists, going into the studio and treating it as a thrilling blank canvas to create something new. His song, “You Don’t Want These Cards,” became the official song for the University of Louisville before the team went on to win the Sugar Bowl in 2013. B. Simm loves to find a beat and indulge in it, springing from that vibe to craft something that feels personal — where energy and the rhythm of his words collide.
Along with upcoming music and tour opportunities, B. Simm has opened up for Tekashi 69, TI, Flo Rida, Nelly, and more. B. Simm is also an actor and entrepreneur, landing his acting debut in River Runs Red alongside Taye Diggs, George Lopez, and John Cusack.
