Bobby Gunnz Gets Real on New Rap Album, 'On Granny Name'

If you like West Coast Hip Hop and Classic Rap, you might wanna check out the new project by rapper, Bobby Gunnz. He recently released a 12 track album entitled, "On Granny Name". The album shows off his versatility in his flow, and his maturity as an artist. His sound resonates with the essence of hip hop--keeping it real. For the artist, he says when it comes to making music, his motive is to achieve a mass of listeners, and "to tap into the picture I'm painting of the struggles I've been able to climb over with persistence." With his his raw authenticity and storytelling, he hopes to help folk struggling "know they're not alone."

He starts the album off strong. On the opener, OGN, Bobby Gunnz gets emotional with listeners, as he drops major hints at just how personal he can get on this project. Gunnz raps about losing his father at a young age, having a strained relationship with his mom, and the impact his grandmother's death had on him. He raps, "If my granny wouldn't have died and went to heaven, life could be different for me homie. Thats on granny name." That vulnerability and honesty is appealing.

My City has a solid boom bap beat. It has that classic rap feel. Bobby Gunnz says he "was raised on greats such as 2Pac, Ice Cube, Rakim, and Jay Z. Sing Along, Legacy, and Beneath You all have a seductive type of energy--a smooth yet vibrant soulfulness. He was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada, and he's been doing music for over ten years.

Real magic is made on Beat Us. Lyrically, he keeps it real--going from kicking back with the ladies rollin' the weed up, to talking about his moral code --"loyal to me and my team, but wish the best for who ain't us. Hating is not in my genes. I don't care what no one else does." Bobby Gunnz doesn't need big metaphors and allegory to keep you engaged. "I like to consider my music realistic and creative without being typical," he explained.

"And your girl think I'm dope. Got me on repeat..."

Listening to the album, you can tell Gunnz has a true appreciation and respect for the genre. "I believe in quality and love of the art form called rapping," he said.
