Musician in Utica, New York

Listen to my music

His name represents underestimated talent. “It’s about those unknown songs that were released on the ‘B Side’ of a single.” Since 1998, B-CIDE has dedicated his life to his passion for making music. Born and raised in Utica, New York with Italian roots, B-CIDE has his own unique outlook on hip-hop. “I don’t limit myself to any particular style. I’m not from the city, so my delivery is a lot different.” In 2007, B-CIDE signed with Wyclef's Official DJ, DJ King Assassin through Liferdef/Universal. Months later, the label was put aside by Assassin who was looking to pursue his own solo projects. B-CIDE bounced back and returned to being independent. In 2008, B-CIDE made the transition from local to national artist by independently securing the release of his third solo album Free Agent in Best Buy stores. B-CIDE is also distributed through Super D Phantom Distribution worldwide. On Free Agent, B-Cide collaborated with former Strange Music artist Cognito on the song “We Like To Party.” B-CIDE returns with his new release, Pulmonary Embolism. Fresh out of a stay in the hospital for a real life Pulmonary Embolism, B-CIDE has laid it all on the line with this release. This album contains many personal songs about life after almost diying as well as America and the state of poverty its currently in. B-Cide also touches on how the media plays a major role in making hip-hop negative, but also shows you he can still take time out and party down with the family. This album is the most personal B-Cide album to date and will strike a chord with the underground and fans of real hip-hop music. This is NOT a cookie cutter rap album. This breaks the mold. B-CIDE has hit the road for three different tours with Project Born. With over 14 years in the game, and after performing all over the country, B-CIDE is continually growing as an artist and expanding his fan base even further.
