Hey folks. My name is John, many call me Lubeen. I’m a Queens native, psych major and lover of (bad) action movies (Jason Statham movies>>>). I’m also a proud board member of CUSH, the Columbia University Society of Hip-Hop (if you’re unfamiliar with us, I invite/advise you to come check us out in the IRC every Thursday from 7-9). Aside from providing the student body with the most entertaining performances on campus, I want to help show everyone – students, administrators and the like – that Hip-hop should not be shunned, but embraced by institutions such as Columbia.
One of the greatest things about CUSH is that it’s given me the opportunity to do some pretty amazing things over the past year. I/we’ve performed at a ton of events both on and off campus, but I think my most memorable shows were the Battle of the Bands last year (which we won), opening for Snoop Dogg & Das Racist at Abbachalypse and Rawcus 2011.
In addition to my CU related activities, I’ve also spent the past several months working on my first solo Hip-Hop project which should be released in the Very near future. Look out for it! (My music can be found at soundcloud.com/Lubeen)
