“Summer Classics” is the debut album from Queens, NYC native Bobby J From Rockaway. Boasting production from Hip-Hop veterans like Kwame, Statik Selektah, Sway in the Morning’s DJ Wonder, and Jake One and features from lyrical heavyweights like Lil’ Fame and Killah Priest, the album is not only an homage to his hometown of Rockaway Beach but also classic Hip-Hop.
The title is inspired by the “Summer Classic” basketball league that has been a staple of his community for generations. In his own words Bobby states: “I feel like every rapper wants that one song that dominates the summertime. My goal was to make a project full of those kinds of records. Something you can play from top to bottom while driving with the top down - Summer Classics.”
