Bubba Sparxxx has nearly completed his new album for Big Boi's new label...

JoB (JoB), Wednesday, 23 March 2005 14:59 (twelve years ago) Permalink

I rediscovered this album just the other day! 'Nowhere' still one of my favourite songs ever. Totally slept on at the time: 'Hootnanny'

It's good stuff, I'm looking forward to this new album. Seems like he's found his own space fairly comfortably...

Kiley Dean = female Bubba.

The Lex (The Lex), Wednesday, 23 March 2005 15:13 (twelve years ago) Permalink

And her track 'America' is a beautiful inverse of 'Nowhere' - the chorus is "nowhere's the place to go, let's get on the open road..."

Hi, Alex.

beatboxed 'comin round the mountain' sounds like pure genius

Which track was this?

BARMS, Wednesday, 23 March 2005 15:30 (twelve years ago) Permalink

Hi Barima!

That was 'Disappear'.

Is there a thread on the new album "The Charm" yet? I think it's mediocre at best, and thoroughly disappointing.

You're right about disappointing, though it might be slightly better than mediocre.

From LAST year's country thread (and I think from hip-hop thread last year too):

So far, I'm liking the new album, but I'm also pretty disappointed by it; there doesn't seem to be any country-oriented stuff, which sucks, but I guess Bubba has to move on. So far my favorite track is "Wonderful," but that could change. The Pablo track's good, too.

Actually i think its that country-motif stuff that was painting him into a corner
-- deej.. (clublonel...), October 24th, 2005.


Maybe, but that doesn't mean it wasn't his best stuff. (Plus, I'm not sure *why* it would paint him into a corner. There's as much possibility in incorporating country as in *not* incorporating country. And there's definitely more possibility in incorporating both country *and* non-country. Getting rid of it makes his horizons *less* wide, not more.) (That goes for David Banner too, by the way.)

Also, no Timbaland, which deej also seemed to think takes Bubba out of a corner, though I don't see why that would be true either, given Timbos perpetual restlessness. Maybe those who think the restlessness is un-Bubbalicious would expect him to shine without it, but paint'n'corner seems to be the wrong metaphor.

-- Frank Kogan (edcasua...), October 25th, 2005.

Actually, I don't think Frank had heard the new album then, though. And the version I was listening to last October was a "rough mix," and since then, two ignorable songs from the original version have been replaced by two different equally ignorable songs on the new one. I still want to think the album's a keeper, but maybe that's just wishful thinking. Whether it's a keeper or not, it's by far the worst and most marginal album Bubba's made.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Sunday, 5 March 2006 23:04 (eleven years ago) Permalink

But "The Otherside" is really catchy!

T/S: Pinks/Oki Dog/Scoobys/Tail o' the Pup (Bent Over at the Arclight), Sunday, 5 March 2006 23:07 (eleven years ago) Permalink

I liked Claremont Lounge. Haven't heard the album yet.

deej.. (deej..), Sunday, 5 March 2006 23:08 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Yeah, "The Otherside" was the Petey Pablo one I mentioned above. And I guess I thought "Claremont Lounge" was okay, but kinda so-what; aren't that one and "Hey" the two that weren't on the original advances sent out last fall? I should go back and listen to "Claremount" again. I *want* to like the album; just don't see how it stands up to his first two.

xhuxk, Sunday, 5 March 2006 23:19 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Too many songs about/for strippers, per current crappy hip-hop trends. They're just so boring, not fun and worst of all not sexy in the least.

you've never had an HJ from a stripper, then

four years pass...

I left off of mama's with my thumb in the wind
The leaves on the ground, winter's comin again
Solid on the surface as I crumble within
But legends are made out of vulnerable men
So on the brink of death I still manage livin life
Cause so rarely in this world are these chances given twice
I indeed sold my soul, without glancing at the price
No instructions when I was handed this device
But with what I did get, I was more than generous
Put others over self on several instances
But I'm back on my feet without a hint of bitterness
And one way or another I shall have deliverance
So I say

as per my recurring refrain since my hard drive death the other month - does anyone have copies of the versions of "nowhere" and "comin' round" that segue fully into missy/justin respectively at the end? those weren't on the album and i no longer have them :(

not that i was ever aware of these segues and their importance but i do appear to have the 'coming round' one

EVERYONE Have NONE of you heard the pre-album mixtape for this? It was called New South and it's not the one you can get on iTunes which is some random Greg Street compilation. It's a 19 track affair entirely produced by Timbaland with mostly Bubba but also "the Muddkatz" - Duddy Ken, Attitude, RIcky Rucker, Kiley Dean, Petey Pablo and it's all really damn good. All originals except for 'In the Mudd' which is a remix of In da Club by 50.

You can hear it for free here -!/playlist/DJ+Enuff+and+Timbaland+Present+Bubba+Sparxxx+and+The+Mudd+Katz+New+South+The+Album+B4+The+Album/66065631 - but I will find a way to get a copy to y'all if you want. I don't know where I originally got it.

Oh man! I'd love a copy. Heard it once, never got a copy for myself.

EZ Snappin, Friday, 10 August 2012 18:24 (five years ago) Permalink

I would appreciate this, yes.

Ned Raggett, Friday, 10 August 2012 18:28 (five years ago) Permalink

sisilafami, Friday, 10 August 2012 19:37 (five years ago) Permalink

webmail me with your e-mail address and i'll get it to y'all? except ned can just check his fbook.

entirely produced by timbo?

well this should be a good indication of whether he has anything left in the tank or not

i may or might not liveblog this

heiswagger (rennavate), Friday, 10 August 2012 23:47 (five years ago) Permalink

"Band Leader" is pretty cool. The first few tracks sounded awfully similar production-wise, but for a pre-album mixtape, what can you expect, I guess.

heiswagger (rennavate), Saturday, 11 August 2012 00:23 (five years ago) Permalink

his percussion/drums still knock harder than anyone else's when he tries tho, as "tell me ya wit it" attests to

heiswagger (rennavate), Saturday, 11 August 2012 00:27 (five years ago) Permalink

awesome farty horns that almost sound like spongy, squishy synths on "tell me about the south"... and operatic background OOHHHOOOOHHHS!

heiswagger (rennavate), Saturday, 11 August 2012 00:32 (five years ago) Permalink

is that polow da don rapping on "put it on me"?

heiswagger (rennavate), Saturday, 11 August 2012 00:38 (five years ago) Permalink

lol @ timbo's "damn how long is this song?" at the BEGINNING of the 3-minute "that's him" and the track's made of these really short three-note guitar licks, stays outta the way of the rapping but they're catchy on their own

heiswagger (rennavate), Saturday, 11 August 2012 00:42 (five years ago) Permalink

this isn't from now - it's from back in the day. right before deliverance came out in 2003.

twinkin' and drinkin' and ready to fly (Alex in Montreal), Saturday, 11 August 2012 00:53 (five years ago) Permalink

but if you haven't heard deliverance, you should be rest assured that it's like this but most of the time even better.

twinkin' and drinkin' and ready to fly (Alex in Montreal), Saturday, 11 August 2012 00:54 (five years ago) Permalink

oh no i'm a dumbass i thought there was a new timbo-produced bubba album coming out :(

i like deliverance but bubba isn't a favorite rapper or anything
