News: Florida Rapper Robby Goode Releases Smashing New Single “Ridin High” featuring MHG’s Compton Menace, Awaits EP Release
West Palm Beach, Fla.-It’s no wonder why south Florida’s newest sensation Robby Goode’s steamy hot breakout single “Riding High” featuring MHG’s lethal weapon Compton Menace is burning through the South like an inferno.
With its chest-throbbing bass line, hypnotic synthesizers and infectious, sing-along lyrics, there is no denying this Jay Run-produced masterpiece.
“I make music for myself. My words reflect how or what I am thinking at a specific time,” says Goode. “So if somebody connects with my music, then they connect with me. That’s the ultimate reward for an artist.”
In that case, then, Goode has been duly rewarded for his musical efforts since he first set fire to South Florida with his debut single “Obama” earlier this year. Goode laced the hard, bass-driven track and heavy, synthesized melodies with in-your-face lyrics about personal life experiences.
And that’s just the first of the many heat rocks that Robby Goode has to offer. He is set to bring that same firestorm of tight beats and lyrics to his much-anticipated EP From the Beach 2 Da Streetz: The Goode Life Series in June. It also features club-jumping highlight “Numb” featuring Miami-based Haitian rapper Black Dada (“I’m A Zoe”). (more…)
