Oakland, Louisiana, United States
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.
