John Reuben is an American hip hop artist who grew up in Columbus, Ohio where his family ran a Christian outreach center and drug rehab facility. Reuben grew up on the grounds and spent a lot of his time with troubled youth from the East Coast who helped fuel his interest in hip-hop. Whilst studying at Ohio State University, Reuben performed at open mic nights and released several recordings on his own label then at 19 he moved to California hoping to expand his musical career.
In California, Reuben worked odd jobs and was an extra in movies and television shows (he says he can be spotted in Clueless and Melrose Place, among others), but returned to Ohio when he landed a deal with Gotee Records.
In 2000, Reuben released his first album for Gotee, Are We There Yet? but truly began to come into his own as an artist with his third LP, 2003's Professional Rapper, which he helped produce, incorporating a greater use of live instrumentation rather than samples and loops. (Reuben and his brother also used the title "Professional Rapper" for a short mock-documentary comedy in which an aspiring rapper from Ohio documents what he imagines will be his rise to fame.) Reuben continued to tackle more personal themes and an increasingly eclectic musical outlook on his next two albums, 2005's The Boy vs. the Cynic and 2007's Word of Mouth, both of which earned him enthusiastic reviews from the Christian as well as the secular music press.
