The thought of a white boy from the backwoods of George making a rap album is as mind-boggling as that of a black kid from Harlem belting out country tunes. But one listen to Ugly--the first single from the forthcoming debut album by recording artist Bubba Sparxxx--will break down the stereotypical barriers and leave you wondering why it's taken so long for a talented white rapper to emerge from the south. Ugly, one of the Timbaland-produced tracks, is an up-tempo joint with a rough edge and a Middle Eastern-type feel. The track, which samples Missy Elliot's hit "Get Ur Freak On," represents the New South, as Sparxxx calls it. "I thought it was the most undeniable record I had," said Sparxxx, a 24-year-old 6-foot 200-pound former high school football all star. "It set the tone for what I'm all about better than any other song could have." The single, and the album for that matter, invite listeners into Sparxxx's world, painting a vivid picture of the rural south from the perspective of a white boy who grew up knowing poverty firsthand. Throughout the album, Sparxxx demands respect for the south, especially the rural areas. He describes his overall styles as "southern hip-hop, with an emphasis on hip-hop, and a rock 'n' roll edge."

Muze PNote The first artist to emerge from Timbaland's Beat Club label is a Georgia native named Bubba Sparxxx. Backed by production from the hottest beatmaker in hip-hop, Bubba's deep Southern-fried accent breathes life into each song on his debut album DARK DAYS, BRIGHT NIGHTS. His first single "Ugly" sports a similar beat to Missy's "Get Ur Freak On" and finds Bubba exploring everything from "not" dating models to breaking bottles. The Caucasian rapper gets more personal on "Bubba Talk," where he explains his Southern personality. With radio-friendly songs like "Lovely" and sure-fire club hits such as "Twerk A Little," Bubba Sparxxx's first outing is a well-rounded one that promises a strong future for the newcomer, even if he does appear covered with mud in a pigpen in his first video.

Artist Overview

There's the Dirty South, and then there's just the good ol' South. With his 2001 hit "Ugly," Albany, Georgia's Bubba Sparxxx represented hip-hop for every Skoal-chewing Southerner who drove a John Deere and loved 2Pac. With production duties on his first two albums handled by Timbaland, Sparxxx arrived with built-in credibility; however, his skilled flow and authentic persona proved that he was more than just a novelty. In 2006, Sparxxx teamed up with Outkast's production squad, Organized Noize, for the album THE CHARM, released on Big Boi's own Purple Ribbon label.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (11/22/01, p.89)
- 3.5 stars out of 5 - "...Littered with aggressively futuristic Space Age grooves and scrunch-up-your-face nasty funk and inflected with bhangra sounds. Bubba's up to the challenge of Timbaland, and he gives you what ebery great hip-hop artist does: a trip into hsi world..."

Q (12/01, p.128)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "...An original new voice..."
