TheBobbyEffect describes herself as a “sex offender” that “influenced Virginia Tech and Columbine shootings”. Although her own description of herself is clearly humorous, her music certainly isn’t. Nineteen year old Bobby from California is a rapper that has taken YouTube by storm and is gaining serious views. Her video “Rabbit Hole Video (The Motto Freestyle)” has gained almost 200,000 views in two months, pretty impressive considering it was her third music visual to be released.
TheBobbyEffect’s latest visual “Eazy” was released as a tribute to the deceased legendary rapper Eazy-E on his death anniversary. She raps over Eazy-E’s track “Boyz N’ Tha Hood”, keeping the lyrical content and flow true to Eazy’s.
Nicki Minaj has her Barbies, Justin Bieber has his Beliebers and Bobby has her Bunnies; she’s already built up a fan base (suitably named ‘The Bunny Mob’) and even has an online store. It’s clear to see why comparisons are drawn between Bobby and other female rappers (namely Nicki Minaj, Kreayshawn and Iggy Azalea); however, I beg to differ. Her delivery is more consistent, her voice is clearer and she is a pleasure to listen to; my ears don’t feel like they’re bleeding when I listen to her tracks (the same cannot be said for Nicki, Kreayshawn and Iggy). Although her lyrical content is on par with the majority of current female rappers, we need to hear more material before write her off as a ‘bubble gum rapper’.
TheBobbyEffect is set to drop her mixtape “BUNNY’S WORLD” this Easter. With Oakland native Lil Debbie hosting it, we’re sure TheBobbyEffect will have many more bunnies hopping into Bobby’s world of ’trill bitches’ and weed smoke.
