New Local Music: Black Bobby “Phat Kid Tendencies”

TONS of awesome new releases have been emerging from right in our backyard.  We’re going to be turning you on to as many of them as possible in the next few weeks.  This one you don’t even have to buy…

BLACK BOBBY is the alias of Miami-based MC Larry Harris, Jr.  Originally from DC, this Harvard grad was about to start running for seats but realized his calling was to run rhymes and move seats!  He’s all about preserving the original spirit of hip hop – his album has no grandstanding foolishness, no bling-worship, and no features – it’s just one man rapping right over some classic beats and reminding you what hip hop is all about.

Start listening here and read more below:

In his own words:

Black Bobby’s first mixtape, Phat Kid Tendencies is totally FREE and comes after three long years transitioning from politics to the music industry.  Phat Kid Tendencies is just straight up real hip-hop utilizing freestyles over familiar classic beats, original songs, and re-interpretations of some of Bobby’s favorite tunes.  Anyone who loves classic hip-hop will appreciate the mixtape.  Phat Kid Tendencies is Bobby’s life work, is based on his real life, and can be most aptly described as “when keeping it real goes right.”  Phat Kid Tendencies has no features and was recorded by Block Royal in their Miami studio.
