And that's basically a mess. When I first watched the video, I thought maybe his mohawk was tapered really narrow in the back...but no. That's definitely tail action. Secretly, I ain't even mad. When I cut my mohawk off, I kinda wanted to hold on to the tail myself. I just couldn't do it. Some things should be left in pictures and memories.
But in all seriousness, I really like Bobby Valentino. I'd probably include him on my list of underrated contemporary male R&B artists, along with Trey Songz and Mario. I don't really remember anything from his first album, which is probably a good thing because those singles sucked. But his last effort, Special Occasion, is still on heavy rotation on my iPod. The album didn't do too well, and that's a shame because it was a lot better than I was expecting from Bobby V., and one of the better R&B albums released that year. But then again, he was on Def Jam, and they can't seem to do right by anyone of late (read: Janet).
That being said, this "Beep Beep" shit sucks. And the whole "Blu Kolla Dreams" shtick he's pushing is also a bunch of bull. I'm pretty sure Bobby was suburban born and raised, with a doctor as a mother, and college degree of his own. His record sells might be modest, but I doubt his pockets are. Here's hoping this is just a phase.
