A Crenshaw District native, raised in both South LA and West Philadelphia, Cedric Ingram II also known by his music followers as Clay Dub is a entrepreneur and aspiring community influencer.
Having grown up in two fairly rugged and dangerous cities, Clay Dub learned about protocol as well as code switching FAST - when you change your dialect and temperament based on the social/cultural atmosphere around you.
"I went to all black and brown schools from elementary until the end of high school; then all of college was majority caucasian. That experience added to my repertoire of dialects and social adeptness."
Growing up for a portion of his childhood in foster care, Cedric developed a yearning for improving his circumstances, and knew that education and entertainment was a desired path but didn't know how he would get there.
In 2008, his final year of High School, after recalibrating his futile efforts in 9th and 10th grade, he joined the Mock Trial Team at Overbrook High School in Philadelphia, PA, which propelled him into the collegiate realm as student-athlete and campus influencer.
Now a college graduate and an experienced entrepreneur and program manager, Clay Dub is on a journey for musical, philanthropic, and cultural excellence, with a story to tell.
"I personally thank you for your interest and support in what I can only hope is a shared sentiment in the pursuit of continuous evolution of WHATEVER YOU WANT TO DO!"
