Biography

Amidst a wave of self-made songwriters, artists and producers, Oakland, California’s Bobby Brackins is at the crest. With over 25 million YouTube plays, and international radio spins, the established soloist who has written a litany of artists including Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Zendaya, Trey Songz, Dev, Jeremih, and Tinashe, is finally coming into his own as a soloist with a sharp pen and easygoing charm.

Growing up in the diverse streets of East Oakland, Bobby immersed himself in a variety of cultures, styles, and attitudes. Bringing that vast influence to his arts, Brackins graduated a local Pop star, hearing himself on radio the night of his senior prom. . “We were all getting back in the limo, and the song played, with our dates all that. It was pretty dope,” recalls the artist, who hasn’t slowed down eight years later. Following his Go Dav cut, “Ride Or Die Chick,” it only grew. “After that, everybody in the Bay area pretty much knew me, and that I made music. I’ve been pretty popular ever since.”

Following high school, Brackins relocated to Los Angeles alongside his producer and close friend, Nic Nac. “I wanted to keep making music with Nic, and I knew that L.A. was more industry-based. That’s where the labels and well-connected managers were.
