Bobby Brackins may not be familiar to a lot of people, but he’s been behind the scenes for the past few years penning hits for folks like Chris Brown, Tinashe, and Zendaya. Now he’s striking out on his own. He’s released a few solo joints recently that I’ve been feeling and he may have something here. “Joy Ride” probably isn’t his best solo joint so far (I like “Faithful” and “My Jam” a bit more), but it could be right for summer. Now I know a lot of my music snob homies don’t like this new west coast sound that’s been poppin’ up with DJ Mustard and them, but I love it. Reminds me of that Bay Area sound that Too Short and Ant Banks were producing back in the day, but alas.
I could be way off. What do you think?
