r.O.b.‘s last feature, January’s Guns n Butter, saw the Philly-by-way-of-NY emcee struggling to survive and thrive despite the disadvantageous hand fate had dealt him. On freshly-released follow-up Sound View Song, the unsigned buzzmaker continues to document his underdog success story in the making. Over Talen Ted‘s smooth, jazzy sample work, r.O.b. recounts how he rose above poverty and familial strife to become the rising rap star and certified baller he is today. Bronx representer Teon Pierce provides guest rhymes on the back. Like what you’re hearing? You can find Sound View Music and plenty more fresh material on the artist’s CircaXXV LP, available online as of March 1.
