The rapper known as Hobo the Ghetto Bastard has released his latest hip-hop album, “Hobo Funk the Great Hip Hop Depression.” The album comprised of nine original tracks has been published on the Swamp Street Records Inc. music label. With heavy doses of funk and rap in equal measure, “Hobo Funk the Great Hip Hop Depression” stands as evidence that the West Coast sound will keep booming, so long as hip-hop heroes like Hobo the Ghetto Bastard keep cutting titanic records like this one.
His love for the great Motown players shines through on his “Great Hip Hop Depression” album giving his brand of rap music a bass-filled back beat and funky groove which rap music has been largely lacking for decades. Fans of the genre who have missed these elements have a treat in store for them with Hobo the Ghetto Bastard’s album which brings back that G-funk sound in spades. He has called his style ‘hobofunk’ from which his new album takes its name. It’s not all mere sound, however. Hobo’s record boasts some excellent lines and rhymes by any standard. Some themes from his album include the seductiveness of sexy women, growing up a fatherless child, buying a big-body car, romantic break ups, world change, traveling, and the principle of social unity.
Hobo the Ghetto Bastard hails from the famous G-funk hotbed of Long Beach, CA which has given the world such legendary talents as Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, and Warren G. Hobo the Ghetto Bastard’s own style fits well with Snoop’s and blends perfectly in a playlist containing rappers like Dr. Dre and Ice Cube. Perhaps surprisingly, Hobo himself cites none of these as main artistic influences by name. He lists instead Marvin Gaye, Tupac Shakur, Gil Scott and Stevie Wonder, as well as the G-funk subgenre as a whole.https://youtu.be/nLQRRzg-Ig4
