"When Optimism Meets Melodic Trap"

Hailing from Pine Bluff, Arkansas, an 8-year-old Brandon "YB" Farris first started showing an interest in music, as he watched one of his seven siblings rehearse lyrics into a mirror at home. That interest continued all the way through to his college years. It was a trip to Passion Conference in his sophomore year at college that changed the trajectory of his career and led him to pursue his newfound passion and rap about "a God I barely knew". Among his musical influences, he counts Jon Bellion, NF, Adele, and Andy Mineo.

Struggling to garner a record deal, he cofounded Bold Records , along with his wife (and college sweetheart), Crystal Farris.His debut album in the Christian Hip Hop world came in 2014 with "Salvation". 

He has been described as 'an artist with a critical eye and the heart required to toil over the smallest details'. That eye and heart have overseen the creation of 7 albums with his latest release happening earlier in 2023, Dreams Don't Have Deadlines. 

YB recently announced a change in his stage name to "808 Beezy" and has made the changes to his social media platforms.
