(best stillframe image ever)

While on tour in Asia, Bobby Ray decided to team up with Motion Family, some local Singapore ladies, and the most baller pool/view combo you’ve ever seen for some quick visuals to his mixtape track, “High Life.”

This is how you stunt.

B.o.B – Camera (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 5th, 2010 by Hyphen

This is actually one of my favorite songs from Bobby Ray and while I was disappointed to see it not make the album, at least they shot some quick viral visuals for it.  As for the topic at hand, you could write an interesting psychological analysis of girls that become models.  That’s gotta be a weird life decision to reconcile with yourself as you get older.  But for the rest of us, at least they’re fun to look at…

B.o.B ft. Bruno Mars – Nothin’ On You (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 13th, 2010 by Hyphen

Visually, I’m not sure the video is up to par with “I’ll Be In The Sky,” or as creative as “Autotune,” but can you really go wrong when you just cast a million cute girls?  Nope!  I’m really glad this record is proving to be Bobby Ray’s first hit.  We played it early on Sound Session and to see it get added to rotation on stations across the country is a beautiful thing.

B.o.B – Put Me On (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on July 9th, 2009 by Hyphen

Bobby Ray flips the classic Tribe track for his edition of the Reebok Classic series and absolutely murders the hook.  Super catchy.  Shout to the Cornerstone folks, B Rich, Tre, and TJ…dope job fellas.

B.o.B vs. Bobby Ray & Who The F#*k is B.o.B

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on June 24th, 2009 by Hyphen

I’ve been waiting for this mixtape for a minute, and not only did it drop, but TJ, B Rich, Bobby Ray, Tre, and the crew released it in the always clutch “No DJ” format.  It pains me as a DJ to say this, but 99% of time when a DJ is involved with a project with new material these days, it’s a detriment.  If you really want a DJ on your tape, just have him (or her…hi ladies) mix it cohesively and don’t let them get on the mic.  You can download my old tape with Amen if you’re curious to see how a DJ can actually help the project.  Shocking, I know.

Anyway, enough ranting.  Peep B.o.B’s new tape where he continues to bend genres and explore his Bobby Ray side.  This dude might be the most musically gifted of all the ‘new’ MC’s and he’s certainly one of my favorite artists right now.

Download here.

As a bonus, they also re-released B.o.B’s tape from last year without the DJ’s.  Grab that as well if you’ve been sleeping!

B.o.B. – Generation Lost (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on February 18th, 2009 by Hyphen

“Honestly, I don’t even listen to rap/
Cause when I turn the radio on, out comes crap/
And if you make good music, that’s ok/
On the radio, that, they don’t play/
It’s easy to see, we created a beast/
Cause everybody wants to hear what they don’t need/
And now all the rappers gotta struggle to give you/
That bullsh*t music so they can continue/
…to live”

Bobby Ray is killing it these days.  If you missed my interview with him a while back, peep game.

B.o.B. – I’ll Be In The Sky (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on January 18th, 2009 by Hyphen

While chilling at the Inverse show last night, a few of the homies reminded me that I haven’t been posting much on TAOD.  My bad y’all, but my time is stretched so tight that it’s tough to handle all the biz and also [Unk] blog it out [/Unk] consistently.  Also, to be blunt, there wasn’t a whole lot of stuff that I saw this past week that seemed dope enough to post.

However, this new video from B.o.B. was one notable exception.  “I’ll Be In The Sky” is one of my favorite joints of the past year or so and I really hope programmers realize how catchy the hook is.  I would love to see a joint like this catch on, because if you pay attention to the verses, Bobby Ray is actually speaking on some real ish.  Look out for cameos from Playboy Tre and B. Rich, and then be sure to peep the interview I did with all three from a little while back.

Be sure to tune in to Sound Session tonight.  I’ll have a whole bunch of new music plus the Inverse homies will be live in studio…
