Hip-Hop Artist John Reuben at YC Alberta

The son of a Christian Death Metal Record Label owner , John Reuben was raised in a trailer park on a farm that doubled as a church/outreach program for troubled youth. John spent his formative years writing poetry, daydreaming, and turning a profit with his older brother on their baseball card collection. All of this played into his love for hip-hop and an entrepreneurial spirit that prompted him to leave High School early to focus on his musical pursuits. By the age of 18 he had started his own Indie Label, and released several ep's recorded by himself and other artists. He also ran a Hip-Hop night with his brother at a local club on Ohio State campus. Just before his 19th birthday, John packed up his recording gear and moved to Hollywood where he survived by doing extra work for movies and television. If you look close enough you can see him appearing in such classics as "Rocky and Bullwinkle", "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" "Melrose Place" and "Clueless". After receiving interest from a handful of labels, John returned home and signed a deal with Gotee Records. Since then he has released 4 albums selling over two hundred thousand records, toured the world, got married, and linked back up with his brother to produce comedy shorts, including a mocumentary "The Professional Rapper". In 2007 John Reuben released his fifth and most focused effort to date, "Word of Mouth" produced by Joe Baldridge (Beck,Family Force 5). As a side note John Reuben did return to school to get his G.E.D and does not condone dropping out.

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
