A man of many hats, BOB ALMiGHTY is delivering some Conscious Crank music from his hometown of Laurel, MD. While balancing his responsibilities as an artist, producer, engineer, and videographer, BOB ALMiGHTY is able to create music about his personal life with a deep or simple meaning, but over various styles of beats. BOB ALMiGHTY is known for fun ecstatic raps, clever punchlines, aggressive monotone raps with world play and heavy auto-tune love songs. The Maryland rapper fits in no box, as he loves to explore and try different things when it comes to his music making process. With his brand “Your Favorite Artists” BOB ALMiGHTY believes that your favorite artist should be YOU.
The track that caught our attention this week is “Front Porch,” a witty track with strong bars and a smooth flow. The song is currently going viral sitting at just over 800k streams and millions of views on social media. His growth as an unsigned artist is paramount and he encourages artists to also have a DIY approach to their craft. “An artist creates. You have the freedom to create your own reality, the power to manifest what you believe in. Your Favorite Artist is just you being your number 1 fan, and pushing yourself to be the best YOU, you can be. If you aren’t your favorite artist, then who is?” BOB ALMiGHTY explained.
As “Front Porch” has been rising in popularity, BOB ALMiGHTY and his team decided to release the perfect visuals to match the energy of the viral track. Shot by TOASTWORLDWIDE, ShootingNIRO, Mark Crooks, and edited by BOB ALMiGHTY and TOASTWORLDWIDE, the official video for “Front Porch” shows a sense of community, all while enjoying the bop of the track. It’s just filled with positive energy and a carefree attitude that blends well with the lyrics of the song. Mix and mastered by Maestrorunninit, “Front Porch” gives us a glimpse into the future of what BOB ALMiGHTY is bound to become. The structure is solid, levels are great, and the bulk of the bars are all strong on their own but work amazingly together.
When asked about the inspiration behind the track, BOB ALMiGHTY shared “I was working on a tape called “DARKSIDE” that dropped October of 2021. It was about my current feelings of depression, anxiety, and just feeling stuck in the same spot for so long. I was mad as hell one day, went down to my home studio and “Front Porch” came out.” He went on to say “I was originally going to name all the songs on the tape an emotion I was feeling at the time, but it wasn’t working out. “Front Porch” was called “Built Up Aggression,” but… “Front Porch” sounded way cooler.” The only barriers to the track itself turned out to be BOB ALMiGHTY’s own procrastination and overthinking. Deciding to become more consistent eventually turned his life around and we are now seeing the product of that change.
The track took some time to hit virality. Dropping in October of 2021 and not getting traction until July of 2022, “Front Porch” is a great example of the positive results of consistency. BOB ALMiGHTY wanted everyone to know the importance of promoting all of your work, regardless of how old it is. We love the enthusiasm BOB ALMiGHTY has. Not only in his music, but in his personality and vibes as a whole. We are definitely rooting for BOB ALMiGHTY in 2023 and can’t wait to hear what he has in store for us next.
