Jeb Bush started rhyming at age 13, quickly learning to focus his lyrical ingenuity and cultivate his talent, and by 2002 he began seriously writing and recording music. In his youth Jeb Bush was influenced by the music of LL Cool J and Notorious B.I.G., and later became inspired by fresh acts like Eminem, Lil Wayne, and T.I.
He emerged on the circuit under the pseudonym Da Franchise, and upon moving to Detroit in 2004 signing a three-year deal with Raw Cut Records. During a 2007 freestyle session he coined his new stage name: “I’m from a state where the crack gets pushed / Fuck a rap name start calling me Jeb Bush . . .” thus Jeb Bush was born.
His career accomplishments include opening up for major artist such as Chip Tha Ripper, Tom G, Iceberg, Trick Daddy, Royce da 5’9, and Frank Lini; Featured as opening act on the “Almost Famous Comedy Tour” in 2011; Has surpassed over 10,000 ringtone downloads; Gaining radio play in over 10 states and in the U.K for his single I’m A Trappa; Nominated for Slip n slides “Artist On The Grind” in 2010; Featured as Southwest Florida’s Artist To Watch in 2010; Featured in 3 national tours (2007, 2010, 2011) performed in over 50 venues across America.
In 2012 Jeb Bush is back with the release of his highly anticipated EP titled “Protege of Plies.” Jeb displays his versatility throughout the tracks, with an innate ability to take a head-on, no holds barred approach, lyrically and musically.
Listen to the opening tracks “I Do Dis,” and “Junkie” and the thing you quickly get to like best about this album is the production. There are dope beats throughout and all of them will get your head bumpin. On most of the tracks Jeb Bush kills it with flow and stays consistent with it. Killer rhyme schemes and powerhouse punchline melodies, make “Dats My Bae,” and “Like A Skrippa” standout catchy tracks.
“Outta Fort Myers” and “Mercy Freestyle” sees Jeb Bush spit straight fire with a lyrical onslaught second to none. Jeb doesn’t just let the beat dictate his rhymes, he swings it around and makes the beat work for him. He is one of those rappers that doesn’t just monotone flow, he spits his rhymes with feeling.
On “Protege of Plies,” Jeb blazes every track. His subject matter runs deep and wide, but you can always see where he’s coming from, because he’s for real. The album is hard and dark, but the tracks are immediately catchy.
Yeah, we know that many rap fans like conscious hip hop and political hip hop and underground, but there’s no substitution for good, heavy lifting music, just plain hype music. This album is seriously satisfying in that department, because everything works so damn well on it.
This Ep is hot. Jeb Bush flows are smooth, dark and flow beautifully like hot chocolate with the beats. If you like rap go out and cop this joint. Heck even if you dont like rap its still good to listen to and you will enjoy it.
Six tracks and no place for any fillers, makes “Protegè of Plies,” an awesome album.
