Bassy, Wash, and his budding artist, Mina.

Brackins also reunited with his old tour, DJ Mustard, in late 2015, to co-write “In My Room,” a collaboration with DJ trio Yellow Claw featuring Ty Dolla $ign and Young Money rapper Tyga. Last year, Brackins was featured in Forbes giving insight on his career as a hitmaker and solo artist.

With over 25 million YouTube plays, and international radio spins, the established soloist who has written a litany of artists including Zendaya and Jeremih is finally coming into his own. Following high school, Bobby Brackins relocated to Los Angeles alongside his producer and close friend, Nic Nac. “I wanted to keep making music with Nic, and I knew that L.A. was more industry-based. That’s where the labels and well-connected managers were,” Bobby Brackins states.
