Bobby Brackins x To Live For

The Bay Area has brought to the industry key elements that makes this business thrive and continue to push the envelope of sound evolution. Bobby Brackins, singer and songwriter, of Oakland and Nic Nac, producer, song writer, rapper, of El Cerrito are two of those individuals whom has dedicated their life to keeping the momentum going.

Bobby and Nic met in high school shortly after, they collaborated and released their single 143 with Ray J. Gaining some paper they decided to head to Los Angeles to pursue management and better their industry network. It worked. Bobby and Nic had collectively branded themselves early so by the time they hit LA they had a slew of connections which led to penning and co-producing with Nic Nac Chris Brown’s Loyal hit single from the X album. Co-writing hits including Tinashe’s 2 On and Ty Dolla $ign’s E-40-assisted Saved. Bobby Brackins has proved himself an architect of the new California sound for years as well as Nic Nac proving his self-true by working with Pia Mia, Zendaya, Eric Bellinger and numerous Sean Kingston tracks.

This year the duo working side by side again making that feel good music. With a Trilogy EP in the works individually titled To Live For… To Kill For… To Die For… They have chosen to drop a remix, well a New Bay Remix, to the single Faithful that still features Ty Dolla $ign but added a hometown hitter IAMSU! for this go around. While this infectious song was already making cars speakers slump Nic Nac added a bit more of his signature sound, those unique little video gamey melodies on top of the dark yet blissful r&b feels that were already in place. IAMSU! always comes correct and gives this track an extra push making the song that pushes the faithful line a bit further.

“This remix brings a whole new sound to the song. The original version had me rap-singing some fly, stunting-type sh*t but with this new version, I’m straight rapping and I’m referring to actual personal experiences. On this one, IAMSU kinda snapped on it old-school style, like he did for E-40’s ‘Function’ – he spazzed out on it. Between The Warriors and all the tech companies and all the music that’s coming out of the area, the Bay Area is seeing a resurgence and that’s why I called his the New Bay Remix”. – Bobby Brackins
