Butta Verses bio –

Butta Verses, a Bronx-bred rapper who now calls Fort Lauderdale, Florida home, made his debut appearance on De La Soul’s 2004 release The Grind Date spitting back to back with Posdonus on the song “No.” Butta’s name was bestowed upon him by fellow MCs at local ciphers but once his mixtape reached the ears of DJ Maseo from De La Soul, his rhymes started reaching neighborhoods around the world. Maseo signed Butta to his Bear Mountain Entertainment label and he began touring with De La Soul to promote The Grind Date. Butta released several mixtapes while playing over 200 shows on De La Soul’s international tours and began recording with his crew GCD (Glee Club Detention) as well as Seattle’s Vitamin D and Bean One for his Bear Mountain debut, Brand Spankin.

Unfortunately for Butta V after three years with Bear Mountain Entertainment and enough recordings to release several albums his projects were never released. Having completed his term with Bear Mountain, Butta focused on live performances, sharing the stage with such veterans as Wu Tang Clan, KRS-One, Boot Camp Click and many others. Though no longer signed with Maseo, Butta was heard in late 2006 on the old-school flavored track, “You Got It” from De La Soul’s Impossible Mission. All along, Butta has seen a great deal of his catalog licensed for television (NBC’s Saturday Night Live and A&E’s Dog The Bounty Hunter, MTV’s The Real World to name a few) and ringtones through his partnership with NYC-based licensing company, Beats and Rhymes.

Today, Butta is wrapping up his follow-up album, Reality BV, with such guests as CL Smooth, Joell Ortiz, Kurious and A-Butta of Natural Elements with production help from The Mighty V.I.C., Marco Polo and Tzarizm among others. Reality BV will be available in the fall of 2008. In the early summer of 2007 an exclusive Butta V track produced by Marco Polo called Jones In Ya Bones was released to vinyl on hip-hop upstart label Audio Clutch. Jones In Ya Bones reached number one nationwide on the college radio hip hop charts and has been featured on various shows on MTV, and E!. Expect more from this rising star in the 2008.
