artist bio

Outspoken, authentic and self-assured, Zuby is a rapper, author and public speaker who doesn’t shy away from expressing his perspective. Every lyric and statement proudly proclaims his beliefs - with a rare honesty that is refreshing, compelling and inspiring.

Zuby was born in England and raised in Saudi Arabia. He attended an international school where he discovered his first obsession - art. He was ambitious even as a child, with dreams of becoming a cartoonist. His creative passion would eventually lead him down a different path.

As a Computer Science undergraduate at Oxford University, Zuby started rapping and within months self-released his debut album 'Commercial Underground'. His first single and music video ‘Steppin 2 Me’ achieved local popularity, receiving radio spins and national TV airplay.

After graduating, Zuby initially joined many of his university peers in the corporate world. But after 3 years of feeling restless, he left the stability of a ‘normal job’ to pursue his passion for music full-time in 2011.


Since then, Zuby’s fan base and list of achievements have continued to grow. He has sold over 25,000 albums independently, created a successful merchandise line, founded a retail pop up shop and reached over 5 million YouTube views and 200,000 followers online. His 'Zubstep' EP reached #12 on the iTunes Hip Hop Charts and he has become the highest funded UK based rapper on Kickstarter.


Zuby is a masterful live performer who has toured the UK and graced stages in the USA, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria and across Europe. His extensive performance resume also includes opening for several popular artists such as Akala, The Pharcyde and his favourite rapper, Tech N9ne.


Zuby has appeared on some of the most popular shows and news channels in the world; including The Joe Rogan Experience, The Adam Carolla Show, The Rubin Report, The Ben Shapiro Show, Louder With Crowder, The Candace Owens Show, BBC, RT, Sky News and Fox News. He also runs his own successful weekly podcast, 'Real Talk with Zuby'

"Zuby proves that it’s possible to bring rap back to a focus on cerebral, amusing lyrics."


"Zuby captures that rare atmosphere spurned so well by the old-school hip-hop masters, but rarely since. His vocal is assured, steady and never overly indulgent, plus tonally very satisfying. Impressive stuff."

- Dan Kinasz, Your Army


"I like the old school influence and he definitely sounds different to most UK urban acts out in the market right now."

- Jenni Page, Chilli PR


"Really enjoying the video and track. You’ve got some impressive styles going on there."

- Laura May Coope, former BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra


"His unique style and clearly pronounced flow will certainly be the thing for any record executive’s palate. It appeals to the club and will turn heads in the underground."
