Robby Blair's debut album, 'Certified Influence', debuted at #29 on the Apple Music/iTunes charts and with it, he displayed how influenced he was by the music emanating from the borough of Queens.
"Bloody Cypher" was a beat Robby recreated by sampling "Bloody Money" & "Halfway Thug" from Capone-N-Noreaga's 'The War Report'.
The track was highlighted by Scram Jones on his Saturday Scramble Mixshow on Shade 45/Sirius.
Robby also had two recent singles premiered by DJ Premier and his Live From Headqcourterz Shade 45/Sirius show.
It was these tracks that got Robby invited to perform at SXSW before the pandemic shuttered those plans.
Not taking his foot off the gas, Robby Blair returns with a continuation of the 'Certified Influence' concept, with his new release, 'Still Under The Influence', and it features another crew of spittas; including Chris Rivers (Big Pun's son), Slaine, Termanology, and Ruste Juxx among others.
With 'Still Under The Influence', Robby's influence shifts to focus on the Boogie Down Bronx and Big Pun.
This is evident immediately with the project opener "Punishment Intro" and with "Punch'em In The Face 2" featuring Big Pun's son, Chris Rivers.
"On my last project 'Certified Influence', I had a heavy Queensbridge, Capone-N-Noreaga influence, as it had a huge impact on my life and music. 'Still Under The Influence' is heavily inspired by the Bronx/Big Pun" Robby Blair affirms. "You hear it from the jump with the intro track that goes right into 'Punch'em In The Face 2' featuring Chris Rivers. To say I'm excited for this project to be released to the world is a huge understatement. This one's for Hip-Hop!"
In addition to releasing 'Still Under The Influence', Robby also released a dual visual for "Punishment Intro/Flex Music" which can be viewed below.
Robby Blair's 'Still Under The Influence' album is now available at all DSPs and features collaborations with Chris Rivers, Slaine, Termanology, and Ruste Juxx.
