Album: The Adventures of Bobby Ray
Release Date: April 27, 2010
Up until about two weeks ago I had no clue who this guy was, until after I saw he sampled a Vampire Weekend song. I decided to check out the track and liked it.
The album has a few great tracks on it and features the likes of Hayley Williams (Paramore), Lupe Fiasco, T.I., Eminem, etc. So for an artist I’d never heard of he had some good backing and production on this album. It likely won’t be an album I’ll want to listen to a year or two down the road, but for now it’s catchy and has quite a few single-worthy tracks on it. One of them is Airplanes, part II featuring Hayley Williams & Eminem. The Eminem part really made the song for me, which was and still is a bit of a shock, since I’d grown quite sick of him over the years.
This is a fun summer album that if you’re into the top 40 kind of music, you’ll probably enjoy. If you’re more “indy” then this isn’t one for you. Here’s the first single off of the album called Nothin’ on you. It’s a great, catchy track as well. Enjoy!
