Jabee

Jabee was the co-host of Grand Union Radio, a hip-hop show on The Spy, from 2017 to 2023.

Jabee is a rapper from Oklahoma City whose music, according to Chuck D from Public Enemy "has the potential to change the world."

He has toured with Run the Jewels (Killer Mike and El-P) and Murs, and has been featured on Sway in the Morning, MTV, XXL, Complex, The Source and Vibe. He has also performed at Kevin Durant’s celebrity basketball game and Russell Westbrook’s celebrity comedy show.

Jabee received the Oklahoma Gazette’s Woody Award for Best Hip Hop in 2007 and 2009, the Oklahoma Street Music Award for Album of the Year (Blood is the New Black) in 2009, and in 2010 was recognized by URB magazine as an Artist to Watch.

In 2014, Jabee collaborated with Oklahoma City-based marketing agency Funnel Design Group to create a television commercial promoting Science Museum Oklahoma. The video won an Emmy for commercial writing and performance.
