B.o.B (aka Bobby Ray) - I Am the Champion
Fresh off his reader-acclaimed guest hook on NBA Live 10 inclusion Mind Blown (headlined by NYC’s Mickey Factz), Southern buzzmaker/reader favorite B.o.B/Bobby Ray‘s back in the Booth with a solo contribution to the EA Sports title’s soundtrack. I Am the Champion finds the ATL emcee gloating his way through two bouncy verses over his own stadium-ready, stomp-clap boardwork (complete, of course, with crowd noise and other big-game ambiance). Simply put, the track’s everything a video kid could ask for; B.o.B.‘s exultant, characteristically out-of-the-box rhymes are as refreshing as a Gatorade shower and, for online gamers who like to add annoyance to injury, the singsong chorus is absolutely perfect for crowing into your headset mic after a big win. If you’re a PlayStation 3 or XBox 360 owner (I have neither, unfortunately – anyone want to make a donation to my Videogame Fund?), you can expect more hot tunes and B-ballin’ action on NBA Live 10, set to hit stores next Tuesday, Oct. 6.
