If you were to judge Sunny Valentine solely on his stage name, you’d assume he was the Care Bears’ resident rapper. Once you take a listen to the Tyler, Texas native, however, you’ll quickly realize that there’s nothing preschool about him. First heard by many on the ‘06 Yung Joc collaboration, F**k You Pay Me, Valentine is now the flagship artist for Sony BMG‘s patch in the independent quilt, Battery Records. On the buzz record, So Fresh, Sunny V mixes his Texan penchant for stunting with an Atlanta-style delivery, over producer Get Cool‘s hand-clapping beat. The territory between Sunny’s two stomping grounds, Mississippi, is also represented with an appearance by David Banner, still in Get Like Me mode. There is no word yet on the release of Valentine’s currently untitled debut album.
