VerBS Rapper Extraordinaire, Bike Hero Positivity Ninja, and Super Host got his start in the deeply-rooted Project Blowed hip hop tradition and has continued its legacy by curating and hosting BANANAS in Leimert Park for the last 7 years. VerBS has toured America and opened with major rappers the likes of Murs,Sick jacken,Open Mike Eagle,Nocando,Kosha Dillz,Rapper Big Pooh,Milo and more, as well as indie bands. His fine-tuned, high-energy performances pale in comparison to his diverse and extensive music catalogue. Big influences include The Life Aquatic,Mos Def,Murs,Phonte Coleman,Jay-Z,The Cardigans,Darwin Deez,One be lo,Ice Cube,Nas, Busta Rhymes, and Eminem. His monthly, Bananas, is easily Los Angeles' number one spot for underground hip hop and indie electronica. Its various spin-offs (Grey Bananas, Green Bananas,BANANAS 42 etc.) are proof that Verbs' network and reach extend far beyond his mother-genre. To look at him--his smiling face and excitement give off the impression of a newcomer to the scene, but with a portfolio that lists cultural staples and Venues such as Low End Thoeory,LACMA,Paid Dues music festival '09,FMLY FEST,Homie fest, it's apparent that Verbs is not only a client, he's the player president. He likes the color seafoam and he wears a red beanie too.
