Andre Kamali Hines, better known as B.I.B.Z, left his native country of Jamaica alongside his mother to pursue the American dream. At a young age, he learned that music was the universal language of life and therefore should be the soundtrack. In a recent interview he stated, "Music should be made to uplift the people in their time of need, showing them that someone is listening and working on their behalf." Using the Hip-Hop platform, B.I.B.Z has created beautiful music broadcasting the everyday struggle of ordinary people. In an age of Hip-Hop where artists exaggerate the truth or just "flat out" lie about the things they have accomplished, B.I.B.Z stays true to the art and creates music so that everyone can be a part of the movement.
