California Bay area hip-hop artist Bob J.r. has released an EP titled “Real Hip-Hop,” his officially published album. The EP primarily features Bob J.r.'s vocals, lyrics, and orchestration as a contemporary example of the Berkeley hip-hop sound, and solidifies his claim to the local mainstream.
Far from the typical beats and cliched chord progressions of contemporary top-40 hip-hop, Bob J.r.'s “Real Hip-Hop” is a fresh, honest treatment of the genre's roots, utilizing classic rhythm patterns and minimal background fill, a style with the space and deep groove of nineties hip-hop that also manages to sound raw, edgy, and modern.
From the beginning, Bob has always emphasized the importance of truth in lyrics, which is part of his “Truth Music” philosophy. Bob says of this, “We have to change the format of hip hop and talk about real life situations. The time has come for the younger generation get some kind of structure and guidance.”
