I came across Bad Rabbits several years ago when they opened for Travie McCoy‘s solo tour in New York. I remember when they came on stage and I was skeptical of what they were about to perform. Opening band judgements. However, as soon as they started, I was hooked. They have such a dope up-beat funky vibe to them and “Way With Words” is no exception. It is definitely a track that will make you wanna get up on your feet and go crazy while carrying that infectious summer time vibe. For that reason, it is today’s jam of the day. Hope you guys love it as much as I do.
Today’s jam of the day is one of those videos that somehow slipped through the cracks. However, YouTube is an amazing thing thanks to its suggestions and when this popped up, I instantly recognized Moe Pope since I’ve written about him before… along with Dua Boakye who is part of a beloved band that goes by the name Bad Rabbits. Remembering their previous works together, I decided to give “Spit vs. Ramo” a listen and thankfully I did. Point blank, the guys, including Rain and Reks, did their thing on this track and a second didn’t go by that I wasn’t nodding my head to the beat. Plus, it goes without saying that Dua’s vocals add a beautiful touch. Vibe with me!
I got the privilege to see Bad Rabbits perform live years ago when they opened up for Travie McCoy and I haven’t seen a band have so much chemistry and have so much fun on stage. Bad Rabbits are absolutely electric live and I’ve been a huge fan of them ever since. While they haven’t released a new album in some time, the guys sometimes bless their listeners with covers of popular songs. Their cover of The Dream‘s “Walkin’ On The Moon” is absolutely beautiful and they skillfully incorporated their “alternative funk” sound with a feature from emcee Moe Pope. Feel good music all the way… Vibe with me!
