The Remix:

Grammy-nominated songwriter/rapper Bobby Brackins continues to heat up winter with yet another  monumental remix of his single, “Hot Box.” Debuted by LA Leakers, fellow Bay Area natives Iamsu! and Too $hort have hopped on the East Oakland-bred artist’s hit song, which is produced by RedWine. “The West Coast is poppin’ right now,” says Bobby Brackins, who had two songs he co-wrote dominate airwaves last year, “and it feels good to have me and Iamsu! represent the young Bay [Area] generation and have the iconic legend Too $hort on my remix.”

“Bobby Brackins is successful because he’s persistent and he has a vision,” says Iamsu! “He has the knack to create songs that everyone can relate to and that a crowd of thousands of people will sing along to.” The original version of “Hot Box,” featuring G-Eazy and Mila J, released five months ago, and has exceeded 3.5 million plays on SoundCloud, with an accompanying video that’s surpassed a million views. “Mila J sounds incredible on the hook, says Bobby Brackins, “she’s talking about some really mobby shit like fucking in the hot box and being down with her bruhs with full swag.”

“Hot Box'” shelf-life has been admirably long. Although the song was released over five months ago, it keeps picking up speed with remix after remix, the majority of them, voluntarily. Soon after L.A’s Power 106 named “Hot Box” the Song of the Week last year, Bobby Brackins’ friend and old tour DJ, DJ Mustard, remixed the track, giving a New Jack Swing vibe. Then, renowned UK house producer Sinden turned up the BPM’s and made it dance floor-ready. “Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock and/or live in North Korea—you’ve surely cozied up to the sex, drugs, and alcohol-fueled bangingness of Bobby Brackins‘ hit single ‘Hot Box,'” said THUMP in their premiere of the Sinden remix.

Nominated for co-writing Chris Brown’s “Loyal,” Bobby Brackins’ profile is on the rise. “Bobby Brackins wrote two of the biggest songs of 2014, so why haven’t you heard of him,” asked Noisey in an interview last week where they discussed his contributions to Tinashe‘s “2 On” and Chris Brown‘s “Loyal.” Bobby Brackins’ heatwave is already taking over in the New Year, as he readies the release of his next single, “My Jam,” which features Jeremih and Zendaya. With many successes credited to his name, Bobby Brackins recognizes that his music is reaching the radars of other artists. “ I just focus on making good music,” Brackins states. “If I’m making it for myself or others—as long as it’s quality, somebody’s going to want to be a part of it.”

The Background:

Amidst a wave of self-made songwriters, artists and producers, Oakland, California’s Bobby Brackins is at the forefront. With over 25 million YouTube plays, and international radio spins, the established soloist who has written a litany of artists including Zendaya, Trey Songz, and Jeremih is finally coming into his own. Following high school, Bobby Brackins relocated to Los Angeles alongside his producer and close friend, Nic Nac. “I wanted to keep making music with Nic, and I knew that L.A. was more industry-based. That’s where the labels and well-connected managers were,” Bobby Brackins states. Taking advantage of the web early on to brand himself the artist has had a slew of success working with countless artists which led to Bobby Brackins penning and co-producing a #1 record for Chris Brown in “Loyal,” as well as helping Tinashe find the traction necessary to earn a major label album release date with her lead single, “2 On.” The credit is there, is as the chart and viral reaction, assuring the world that Bobby Brackins has his pen, production, and pulse on the people.
