Yay or Nay?: Bobby Raps “PlaneWalkers”


bobbyraps
A while back, I did a “Yay or Nay” For THIS song by Bobby Raps and Corbin (AKA Spooky Black). I ,personally loved the song and , judging from the polls, you guys did too. Since then, both artists been dropping shit here and there. For the most part, I’ve been into it. Definitely some cool shit coming out of St. Paul.
The other day someone left this new Bobby Raps video in my inbox and I’m sorta confused. I’m not sure if this is a one off , style-wise or if he’s moving on to a new sound in his career but it’s interesting. Now, I have a STRONG idea how the voting for this poll is gonna go. I know this fan base well enough to know that trap beats, auto tune and yell rapping are not what you guys enjoy. At least, the majority of you. I’m a little more lenient about that kinda thing (I’m over it but , when done well, I see the good). Thing is, on the surface, I should hate this song. It’s kind of a beautiful mess. The beat is pretty dope, and Bobby’s raps are actually awesome if you get past the autotune. Hell, I even can fuck with some of the singing parts. There’s no question it’s got an energy to it too. But, at the same time, it does leave me a little confused. Maybe that’s the point?
So, with open minds, I ask you to listen to this and tell me what you think. Be honest. Why not?

Well, what do you think?

  1. He’s got a lot of autotune stuff that’s similar actually. But it is also all kind of joke-y. Like if you check his song “fuk my baby mama”

    I personally love it cuz it’s ridiculous and so so catchy.

  2. ayeeee i know bobby! im from minneapolis, the sister city to st paul. he makes hella trap songs, hasnt released many yet. he came up in the minneapolis rap scene doing wordy rhymesayers/doomtree style rapping, but he has been doing trap style shit on the low for a long time. he is hella talented. i’m curious to see how his career will play out. i know “real hip hop” fans dont often take to kindly to trap shit.

  3. Just went down a youtube rabbit hole. First hour of work successfully killed. It’s like you see these kids and your first instinct is to hate but if you pay close enough attention you see theres something there. I can’t put my finger on it and that likely cause it’s not made for me. I could easily see Bobby fronting a hardcore band in a different time period.
