To continue our brand new feature ‘A Look in the Past’ we are going back to our second interview ever with Bobby Brackins, the ‘made another hit for the radio station’ hit maker from The Bay. This goes way back to December of 2009 when he just released his ‘Making of A Legend’ mixtape sitting on top of his MTV & VH1 released video for “Skinny Jeans” directed by Colin Tilley. Check it out below (mind you that the interview is completely unaltered) and keep it locked in for who’s up next and more features on Bobby in the future.
Here is a track I liked released at the time of this interview. #Based
