Who knew that when Darren “Buttahman” Brin left his birth place of St. Thomas, USVI he would go on to become an entertainment tastemaker/influencer. He moved to Baltimore, MD to attend Morgan State University. After graduating, he took an internship at the local radio STATION WERQ (92QJams) in Baltimore. He quickly fell in love with the free music and concert tickets. Literally starting at the bottom, Buttahman worked his way to the top and became a full-time On-Air talent. He received his name “Buttahman” due to his over usage of the word “Buttah” to describe everything when on the radio.
In 2001, Buttahman was recruited by MTV to join the Music and Talent department. He launched the network MTV JAMS and successfully built the brand into one of the most recognizable places for breaking hip hop acts.
In 2007, Buttah created, produced and hosted the first nationally televised hip hop game show “Hoodfab” which aired across all MTV networks. The concept of pitting rap fans against their favorite hip hop stars in a battle of “Hip Hop Wits” was a huge success. He was also one of the most outspoken and dynamic cast members of MTV’s Hip Hop Brain Trust. The group decided the highly contested annual”Hottest Emcees in The Game” list for MTV.
Since leaving MTV he has gone on to produce, host, and star in several different web series and short films. Buttahman is an optioned screenwriter who does stand-up comedy in his spare time. You can also keep up with him @allthingsbuttah on Twitter and Instagram
