As a collective, SOB x RBE has been building buzz locally as the Vallejo-bred group known for their aggressive yet joyous, '90s-nodding bops that showcase each of the quartet’s energetic signature styles, and now globally thanks to their bouncy Black Panther: The Album placement "Paramedic."
But on the group’s debut album Gangin', they weave together a melange of different styles and nestled in the latter half of the effort, is “Y.H.U.N.G,” courtesy of Yhung T.O., a track that sticks out from the rest. T.O.’s flavorful melodic rap-sing flow – which he says is inspired by 50 Cent, Wiz Khalifa and Drake -- comes as a welcome respite from the brash rhymes of Slimmy B and DaBoii heard throughout the 15-track effort.
Now, T.O. is stepping out on his own to bring his trademark style to a bigger audience and inked a deal with Rule #1/ Interscope to unveil his newest solo project titled Misunderstood, due out later this year and accompanying single and video of the same name. For T.O., signing with the music industry behemoth felt like the perfect place to call home and says Interscope's goals match the vision he has for his budding career.
