By  | 

Derrick “Billy Billz” Shim-Hue was born in Manhattan, NY but lived most of his life in West Palm Beach, FL. Both his father and his mother are Jamaican descent. Billy Billz fell in love with hip-hop in the summer of 2002 visiting his family in Brooklyn when rappers like Camron/Dipset, 50 Cent/G-unit and Jadakiss/D-block were running the underground mixtape circuit, and have been releasing albums and mixtapes ever since. His unique style resembles Southern and East Coast raps with witty bars and catchy hooks that have his songs stuck in your head. He is also known for remixing and flipping commercial records to make it his own, basically hijacking the beat. He is also 1 half of the West Palm Beach rap group “C.Set” (The Check Set) which includes Eric “E.Fresh ” Watts.
