HipHopDX Premiere – Queens MC Bobby J from Rockaway has enlisted Statik Selektah for the Endless Summer EP. Ahead of its release, the duo has unveiled the inaugural single “Where I’m From” and coinciding video.
“‘Where I’m From’ is probably my favorite record from the project and really encapsulates the feeling I’m going for,” Bobby J tells HipHopDX. “As soon as Statik played me this beat, I started saying Slimkid3’s ‘being where I’m from’ line from Pharcyde’s ‘Runnin‘ in my head. The hook and concept came to me right away.
“The crazier part is when I went to record it, Statik actually had the ‘Runnin’ acapella and was able to layer that part under my vocals, which made it sound even doper.”
