Bobby V learned about the ups and downs of fame at a young age. Getting his start at age 13 in the R&B vocal group MISTA, Bobby V got his first taste of success as the single “Blackberry Molasses” gained popularity. However, plans for a second MISTA album failed to come to fruition. “This was a rough time in my life, one day you’re on TV, living the life and the next day you are back to reality, ” says Bobby V. “But I didn’t give up.” And his persistence paid off –signed to Disturbing Tha Peace Records, Bobby V released his second solo effort, Special Occasion, this month. The second single from the album, entitled Rearview Ridin’, is a slick, Timbaland-produced ballad featuring a performance from DTP label head, Ludacris.
