Mr.B The Gentleman Rhymer

Artist Links

Mr.B began his Chap-Hop career in the summer of 2007 when he decided to bring elements of his previous incarnations (UK rapper, jump-up breaks producer, banjolele maverick and dandy) together and create a genre.

'A Piece Of My Mind', his first ditty was released in Japan on Second Royal Records and its accompanying video and UK tour dates alerted the rest of the world to this new musical form.

Since then he has travelled the world, from Surrey to Osaka, Banstead to Berlin, Middlesborough to Minneapolis, Norway to New York and the Edinburgh Fringe to Glastonbury bringing his beats, rhymes and manners. As well as songs about cricket, pipe smoking, high society and interfering with livestock.

Mr.B has recorded five long players (OG, Original Gentleman; The Tweed Album, Can't Stop Shan't Stop, Mr.B's Christmas Album and 2016's There's A Rumpus Going On) as well as one collection of Chappist Acid House (Mr.B The Gentleman Selector's Acid Ragtime: Chapstep Volume One)
