MP3: Black Bobby - "The Prince Akeem Theory"


I'm dropping this today for FREE as an A-Side/B-Side single with The Prince Akeem Theory on the A-Side and my 6'7' Flow on the B-Side.

The Prince Akeem Theory is dedicated to the memory of my good friend from Tufts- Naeem Webster.  He died in a terrible car crash on the way home, late, Thanksgiving Eve and his body was burned beyond recognition.  Naeem was a great dude.  He loved Hip-Hop.  He wanted me to get him the Rick Ross Diamond Supply hat from Foot Soldiers.  He was also a big Kanye fan.  I wrote this song with him in mind and I think he'd appreciate it a great deal.  So, the actual "Prince Akeem Theory" is something I came up with to describe my mission.  I left a successful career in politics in Boston to be here living Hip-Hop.  I literally had a moment (in NYC) where I felt like Prince Akeem throwing away his crown for love.  I think following your dreams is more important than a pay check.  But, my theory is that by chasing my dreams I will get what I ultimately really want.

The B-Side singe is my 6'7' Flow over the Bangladesh beat that Lil Wayne used for his single.  I know a gang of rappers are on this beat already but none of them are me.  I haven't heard anyone in Miami on it.  And, I crushed it.  I wanted to pair this single with the other to further illustrate that I'm an Indie rapper, not underground.  My music is a little of both mainstream and underground.  And, I plan to keep it that way.

I'm planning a big Hip-Hop show for April 3rd.  I don't have many details yet but I can tell you that we're basically trying to throw a show with live acts in one room and Dubstep DJs in the other room.  For me, this will be one of my last performances in Miami before I head to DC.  I'm doing some time there in the late Spring networking and setting up shows.  Then, this summer I'll be on a mini-tour.  I have show invites in DC, NYC, Chicago, Boston and NJ for the Atlantic City Film Festival.  I'm thinking about opening a Kickstarter account to raise money to fund the tour.

THANKS for all of your support.  Check out the tunes and let me know!
