With trap-styled production, hand claps, and a low bpm perfect for any house party, “Hot Box” illustrates Bobby’s tenacity for songwriting and ability to cross seamlessly into the pop rap world while still maintaining his East Oakland roots. Matched with lyrics, “Roll up with the windows up I’m still sippin’ whiskey from the solo cup,” “Hot Box” is guaranteed to be a house party staple. On referencing the creation of the track Bobby reflects, “Hot Box is going to pop off in parties and functions. It sounds amazing in the car. People are going to pre-party and cruise to it and play it when then are in the mood to have a good time. People are going to start understanding that my sound is what has generated a lot of what’s working on the radio. I’m excited to put out my new music. I was behind the scenes for a while now it’s time to get it poppin’ for myself.”
