generikb, also known by his personal name Judson "Jud" Chapman,[2][3] is an American[4] Let's Play commentator living in Bulgaria.[5] He's a self-proclaimed "gaming hermit" and a former member of the Mindcrack Server. He was invited to join by Guude in August 2012, after they met at PlayOnCon 2012.[6]

On 3 April 2015, it was announced Generik would be parting ways with Mindcrack,[7] because he "did not wish to sign certain legal agreements".[8]; he himself noted that his participation in future UHCs is unlikely.[9]

Generikb was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He moved regularly throughout his schooling due to his father's work. He recalls living in Texas, Tennessee, Florida, Massachusetts, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Ohio.[10]

While attending college, GB was known as "Generic Bluesman" while playing in a band known as The Sun Tea Bandits, meeting the other member of the band through his job as a server at Red Lobster.[11] He shortened the name to "Generikb" to use in IRC.[12]. GB studied electronic and computer engineering in college.[13]

Generikb was married on 5 November 1999.[14] He says he and his wife wanted to have kids but couldn't due to medical issues.[15]

Since 1 February 2013, Generikb creates YouTube content full time.[16]

Generikb previously lived in Chicago, Illinois but moved to Sofia, Bulgaria in November 2013,[17] to be with his ill mother-in-law.[5] His mother-in-law, referred to as "Mammo", passed away on 20 March 2016.[18]


Generikb's PO Box is now closed as he has moved to Bulgaria. He used to accept fanmail through his old PO box, and shared what he received through episodes of "HAPPY HERMIT FANMAIL TIME!".[19]

Generikb is the founding member of the HermitCraft. He created the server in April 2012 as a way to collaborate with other Let's Players.[21] He left the server in April 2013 to continue his Let's Play on the Mindcrack Server.[22]


In Season 3, Generikb founded the B-Team with BdoubleO100.

On the Season 4 map, Generikb built a large mansion in a swamp biome. During the MindCrack Marathon, it was blown up after jaaski donated $1,000 to Child's Play charity. However, Guude restored a backup of the map after Scrubzilla donated $2,000 to save the mansion.

On the Season 5 map, Generikb built a "pimped out RV" in spawn.[23] He intends to only eat fish throughout the season.[24]

Minecraft skin[edit]

Generikb's skin is a hermit. He says he originally made his skin to suit his natural play style.[25] In June 2012, Planet Minecraft user Dalaxy recolored and shaded his skin.[26][27] Although Generikb attended MineCon 2012 and MineCon 2013, he did not redeem his attendee Capes. He gave away his 2012 cape in a contest,[28] and his 2013 cape to a donator who gave $5,000 to charity,[29][30] despite initially promising the cape to Scrubzilla.[31][32][33]

Previous/Alternate skins[edit]

Generikb has also worn a prison uniform during his Prison Break series,[34] a ski mask while "robbing" members of the server with BdoubleO100,[35] and a Christmas-themed outfit for his Christmas 2013 video.[36]
