I was skeptical at first. I didn't love the Gym Class Heroes, though I will admit to liking their singles. I'm always wary when artists go solo, wonder if they'll implode without the rest of their band. But Travis McCoy, who is now going by Travie, just put out a sample of his new solo album. The song is "Billionaire" and it's less hip-hop and more Sublime. It started slow, but I was absolutely feeling it by the end. Bruno Mars sings on the track in addition to Travie's rhymes, and the two flow together very well. I could get into this.
We'll see how it goes live in May. I love the line: "Everywhere I go, I'ma have my own theme music." Isn't that really everyone's dream?
