Bobby Lovelock hails from the clean streets of Chicago Illinois. Growing up listening to a variety of musical styles, he found his passion lay in the rhyme schemes and beat loops of earlier musicians like Rakim, Dj Premier, and Jay-Dilla. Going on 8 years now, Bobby has been an integral part of the Chicago hip-hop scene, sharing the stage with some of hip-hop's biggest names, as well as deejaying steadily around the city. If you are in Chicago, you can catch him at spots every weekend, and you might even get a free drink for mentioning one of his albums. Relying on a heavy sense of gratitude and respect for the culture of Hip-hop, Bobby tries to produce music that is consciously rooted in the prior experiences of the genre, but not defined by it. As he says in 'Do Your Thing,' - 'Zulu Nation! Native Tongues! Public Enemy still number one!' Hopefully this piece of music will transport you back to a golden moment in 1993, and then whisk you right back in to 2008 with a smile and an Obama button.
