Daddy B. Nice notes:

With his place in the contemporary southern soul pantheon secure, Bigg Robb has relaxed with a lot of simple, funk-based, party-hardy, drink-heavy, dance jams of late, and there's plenty of that here. But Robb made much of his reputation with spectacular covers like his remakes of Carl Marshall's "Good Loving Will Make You Cry" and Klass Band Brotherhood's "Sugar Shack".

On this set, he presents a cover of Millie Jackson's "If Loving You Is Wrong (I Don't Want To Be Right)" that vies to be put on the shelf alongside them. Robb's original ballad, "I Love You (Please Don't Go)," is also an interestingly deep and intimate--and obviously personal--ballad in the "Good Loving"-"If Loving You Is Wrong" vein.

June 24, 2017: Re-Posted from Daddy B. Nice's Corner

June 10, 2017:

News & Notes:


1. Bigg Robb was visiting with DJ Big Money on-air at WAGR in Lexington, Mississippi today (Saturday, June 10th) and announced he will have a new album coming out in July (best case scenario). The title: BORN TO DO THIS. Robb is also airing a taped show on the station on Saturday afternoons.

Incidentally, for those wondering if the rift had healed between Bigg Robb and Bishop Bullwinkle over Bullwinkle's use of Robb's instrumental track for his unconventional smash hit, "Hell Naw To The Naw Naw" two years ago, the conclusion of the DJ Big Money interview was instructive. Big Money--after playing all Bigg Robb songs during the on-air conversation--made the faux pas of putting on "Hell Naw To The Naw Naw." Barely three bars had played before Bigg Robb snapped, "Turn that thing off. That dude owes me money!" You never heard a deejay switch tracks so fast.

Here's a thought. Since Bullwinkle wouldn't honor Robb's copyright, maybe Bigg Robb should turn the tables on Bullwinkle by covering "Hell Naw To The Naw Naw" in the way he covered Carl Marshall's "Good Loving Will Make You Cry," make a smash hit of his own and finally get paid in "like" fashion.

Daddy B. Nice's Updated Profile:


May 12, 2013:

Bigg Robb may be the biggest surprise of all the "young guns" in Southern Soul. How has this one-time rapper with the 80's synth-funk style conquered the Southern Soul world--fans, deejays and critics alike? We're a long way from Kansas, Dorothy, and we're a long way from the "golden-mean" southern soul of Ernie Johnson's "Love's On The Other Line."

Faced with the stark contrast between the warm, Johnnie Taylor-Tyrone Davis-Marvin Sease-style Southern Soul of "Love's On The Other Line" and Bigg Robb's computer-dominated funk, it seems almost incomprehensible that the "big man" could pull off such a feat.

But that's exactly what Bigg Robb has done, evolving stage by stage over the years, earning every bit of his place in the current top ten artists in Southern Soul music, having out-worked, out-thought, out-performed and out-arranged (to mimic his "fronting" style) just about everybody else in the business.

Above all, the "fat man's" had the desire, the willingness to do anything, whatever it took, from the early days when he shamelessly donned a satin diaper to the formative days when he decided to bring in other lead singers to compensate for his own weak vocals to the latter days when he began lead-singing himself through an auto-tuner.

The Southern Soul fan's fascination with Bigg Robb was mutual. Robb was always fascinated with the South, and he worked to make it more so. You never heard him singing about "northern ladies." You did hear him singing about both "southern ladies" and "big women," another signature Southern Soul topic.

Your Daddy B. Nice wasn't a big Bigg Robb fan in the early years (read more about that in Daddy B. Nice's Original Artist Guide to Bigg Robb (90's-00's), but with each succeeding album my respect and even anticipation for his seemingly never-depleted musical product has grown.

Robb's turning-point in my mind was the Problem Solva's "I Thought She Was At Home," in which Robb negotiated the old creeping-husband-meets-creeping-wife-in-the-motel story with the panache, scope and extraordinary detail of a master.

The pinnacle of Robb's career is without a doubt the point, near the end of "Good Loving Will Make You Cry (Remix)," when the computer-enhanced vocal takes over completely from the passionate but earth-bound Carl Marshall, like an eagle soaring over a vast vista:

"I'm cryin', cryin', cryin'
Over your love."

That's the cathartic moment when Bigg Robb proved to every Southern Soul fan that he could sing with passion through the "heart" of a computer. Ever since, Bigg Robb's enhanced vocals have sounded as natural as if they were real.

About Bigg Robb (New Album Alert!)

Robert Smith (aka Bigg Robb) was born July 12, 1967, the "summer of love," in Cincinnati, Ohio. In the eighties Robert, still in his early teens, became a long-running Cincinnati deejay ("Sugar Daddy From Cincinnati," playing commercial R&B, rap and hiphop), a position from which he secured interviews with Bootsy Collins (of Funkadelic) and Roger Troutman (of Zapp). In an interview with Blues Critic's Dylann DeAnna in 2007, Bigg Robb described the importance of these two masters of eighties' funk on his life:

"Bootsy Collins came to the radio station and did an interview with me at 6 in the morning and people swarmed to the radio station for this interview with Bootsy. And Bootsy came looking like you've always seen him look. Star glasses, spikes, the clothes and, dude, I was stunned! That was the moment. The defining point and I knew I wanted to be an entertainer. Whatever Bootsy does that's what I wanted to do. Be an entertainer! Then I saw Roger and once I saw Roger perform I was, like, "It's a wrap! I'm going to be up in this music thang!".

Collins and Troutman had recording studios in the Cincinnati-Dayton, Ohio area in the eighties and nineties, and Troutman in particular became Bigg Robb's mentor--Robb working as valet, personal assistant and eventually studio mate. (Roger Troutman was shot to death by his brother Larry in a Cain & Abel-style murder/suicide on April 25, 1999).

By the time Roger Troutman died, Bigg Robb had a rap album and other hiphop studio work under his belt. Robb had joined Zapp, playing mainline synth-funk, and on a tour date in Greenwood, Mississippi he met Mel Waiters, whom he admits he had never heard of.

Robb's remix of the Southern Soul master's "Hole In The Wall" (a perennial Top 10 Daddy B. Nice's Southern Soul Singles 90's-00's) marked Bigg Robb's entry into the world of chitlin' circuit, Southern Soul-styled music.

However, the Southern Soul influence wasn't apparent right away. Robb's first albums (both those under the name Bigg Robb and those under the name Da Problem Solvas) were very much in the northern-funk style of George Clinton, Bootsy Collins and Roger Troutman.

But there were pronounced affinities to Southern Soul music as well. "Grown Folks music," which became the title of Robb's first non-rap CD, was one such connection, because it played to the Southern Soul fans' exhaustion with hiphop-dominated, contemporary youth culture.

Another theme in common with the traditional Southern R&B fans (and one which became the title of his second LP) was Robb's fascination with "big" in general and "big women" in particular (usually spelled "bigg" in Bigg Robb's world). Bigg Robb's first signature single was "The Big Woman Song," memorialized in the The Big Woman CD in 2003.

Both were largely funk-rapping concoctions, with Robb playing "master of ceremonies" to a musical format that varied greatly in quality from song to song. Witty, flamboyant, and a charismatic speaker, Robb was nevertheless not a "lead singer."

As a matter of fact, the occasions on which Robb's talents really shone were collaborations with lead singers: "I Miss You" w/ Mama Big, "Guajira" with Don Cisco and "Big Robb's House Party" with Karen Brown.

So Robb took the "next" step, putting together a band called Da Problem Solvas (not to be confused with the Problem Solvaz, a Sourthern rap quartet), with its three principals being Robb, longtime collaborator/co-writer Bart "Sure 2 B Thomas (see song credits for "Good Lovin'" above) and lead singer Big Woo, whom they picked up from a Toledo, Ohio-based band.

Da Problem Solvas' Every Woman Deserves To Be Satisfied arrived in 2004, and it marked another milestone for the hard-working, "driven" performer/producer.

And yet, there was a relative hiatus of a couple of years (a Christmas album, a Hurrican Katrina album, and other-artist projects) before Bigg Robb returned to form with a vengeance on 8 Tracks N 45's in 2006.

This eighteen-track, funk-slash-Southern Soul CD featured a roster of artists executing a big-tent, three-ring-circus musical agenda that dwarfed anything seen before on the chitlin' circuit.

Robb brought in talent from the Gap Band, the Ohio Players and seemingly anywhere else he could get his hands on it. Bigg Robb repeated the formula in 2007's Blues, Soul and Old School , crossing the line into "compilation" album territory by even presenting full-fledged guest-artist songs such as Pat Cooley's popular Southern Soul hit, "Older Woman, Younger Man."

The jewel of the album, however, was Robb's collaboration with Carl Marshall on Marshall's already-established Southern Soul hit, "Good Lovin' Will Make You Cry."

In awarding Bigg Robb the first annual "Daddy" Award (2007) for Southern Soul Producer of the Year (and #3-ranked Southern Soul Song of the year), Daddy B. Nice wrote:

"Good Lovin' Will Make U Cry" (Remix)------------Bigg Robb w/ Carl Marshall

"For the first time ever, the technical edge and clarity of hiphop and funk were fused seamlessly and naturally with Southern Soul, serving notice that a new and masterful Southern Soul producer had come of age."


Blues, Soul & Old School became one of the best-selling CD's in Southern Soul rhythm and blues history.

The same year (2007), Robb released a compilation of earlier songs entitled The Best Of Bigg Robb & Da Problem Solvas. The collection included the early hits with other lead singers: "Man Next Door" (one of the first songs to openly address beaten-women advocacy) and "Keep On Stepping" (Robb's most purely northern-soul tune).

Jerri Curl Music (Over 25 Sound), a nineteen-track collection, was released in 2009, compiling popular singles with "Float On," "Everybody Makes Mistakes," "Family Reunion," "Party Tonight," "It Ain't A Party Until You Play The Blues" and "If I Get Drunk."

A gospel-oriented collection of old and new songs, Grown Folks Gospel: Songs Of Encouragement, including "Mama's Song" and "Everybody Makes Mistakes," was published the same year.

Soul Prescription, another typically-generous Bigg Robb collection (18 tracks), followed in 2010. Once again, Southern Soul radio singles abounded. "Remix Our Love," "The Crying Zone," "Young Folks Love The Blues" and "Backtracking" were extremely popular with fans, and Bigg Robb's star power continued to rise.

Juke Joint Music (Over 25 Sound, 2012) was equally successful, repeating the formula used on 8 Tracks & 45's of including signature hits by other popular artists, i.e. L. J. Echols ("From The Back") and Klass Band Brotherhood featuring Nelson Curry ("Sugar Shack"). The album also featured Robb's accomplished remix of "Sugar Shack" and a number of well-received collaborations with artists such as Mel Waiters, Ghetto Cowboy, Omar Cunningham and Carl Marshall.

3. "Booty Pop"--- Bigg Robb

The fabulous Bigg Robb intro to this take-off on the over-rated line dance "The Wobble" (think a chitlin'-circuit version of House music) features the theme from 2001: Space Odyssey. As usual, Robb blesses the material with a boundlessly sexier groove. The coup de grace is a marching-brass-band hook that reminds you of the bite of cold humid air at a Friday night football game. Great Busta Rhymes-like video.

November 26, 2015: Story & Interview


BIGG ROBB TAKES DOWN BISHOP BULLWINKLES'S "HELL NAW TO THE NAW NAW" FOR COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT





Bishop Bullwinkle

Bigg Robb has removed the official Bishop Bullwinkle video for "Hell Naw To The Naw Naw" from YouTube for copyright infringement, citing Bullwinkle's unauthorized use of the instrumental track from Robb's "Looking For A Country Girl."

Juke Joint Music, the Bigg Robb album from which "Looking For A Country Girl" was taken, was first published and copyrighted by Robert Smith (Robb's given name) at CD Baby upon its initial issue in 2012.

January 10, 2016: RE-POSTED FROM DADDY B NICE'S NEW CD REVIEWS:

July 25, 2015:

BIGG ROBB: Showtime (Music Access/Robb Music/Over 25 Sound)

Five Stars ***** Can't Miss. Pure Southern Soul Heaven.

You have to hand it to Bigg Robb. While the Klass Band Brotherhood has been experimenting--some might say dithering--with uncharacteristic, hard-edged, funk material since the sweet, mid-tempo "Sugaa Shack" bomb that made their brand, Bigg Robb has recognized the cradle-rocking euphoria of "Shack" and appropriated their signature song, reverentially recording and re-recording it (with Nelson Curry's blessing) in the same fashion he co-opted Carl Marshall's "Good Lovin' Will Make You Cry (Remix)" (also reverentially, with Carl's blessing), giving both songs greater radio and internet exposure and ever more widespread popularity.

Showtime, Bigg Robb's terrific new album, features Robb's, Mz. Jackson's, et. al.'s techno-enhanced "Sugar Shack (Extra Long Remix)," displaying once again (as if we needed proof) that Robb is the most cunning and intuitive producer in the business today, but it by no means stands alone. Within the confines of Showtime's typically generous, B-I-G-G sixteen-track set, "Sugar Shack (Extra-Long Remix)" is merely the precursor to Robb's own bid for the "sweet spot" of southern soul music: the mid-tempo, lullaby-like "Good, Good."

Robb understands that a really good song is a "full house," and "Good Good's" basement is a bass line to die for, with all the other instrumental and vocal pieces lovingly layered like a ground floor, upstairs, attic and roof. Over the years Robb's auto-tuned lead vocals have progressed with such finesse (and his lyrics have stockpiled so much audience trust) that his singing now sounds perfectly sincere and authentic--natural, if you will--to anyone who listens to southern soul music with regularity.

"Good, Good" is the culmination of all of Robb's diligence, an easy-going anthem that perfectly sums up not only his charisma but the very popularity of southern soul itself.

Here's a birds'-eye view of the other musical riches contained in this new collection:

"Hotter Than Fish Grease" is the most sophisticated treatment yet of a Bigg Robb riff that first appeared on the SOUL PRESCRIPTION and JUKE JOINT CD's: "Fish In Some Grease."

An unabashed ode to making love, "Getting It In" is a dance jam propelled by a simple, repetitive guitar riff and a healthy dose of Bigg Robb-style story-telling. Humorous and vivid.

"Fill It Up" is another, sparely-produced fast jam, humble and infectious, its subject the joys of drinking. ("Now I'm feeling like a superstar.") Both these songs have had extensive runs on southern soul radio over the last year.

Watch the official Bigg Robb video of "Fill It Up" on YouTube, at the end of which you can see the fat man drunkenly staggering off.

"Please Don't Judge Me" is a soulful ballad with gospel overtones and plenty of Bigg Robb-style, voice-over storytelling, in the mode of Bigg Robb's "Everybody Makes Mistakes."

The musical backbone of "Blues and BBQ (feat. Denise Lasalle)" harks back to the days when your Daddy B. Nice still suspected Robb's southern soul "bonafides". (See Daddy B. Nice's Original Artist Guide to Bigg Robb.) Thus, the friendly jab in Daddy B. Nice's Top Ten "Breaking" Southern Soul Singles for July 2015:

The attraction here is the Queen Of The Blues and the friendly banter. Minimal hooks from Robb lately ("Getting It In," "Fill It Up"). This one sounds circa 2005, a real throwback. What if, after all the trust and acceptance given him by the chitlin' circuit, Bigg Robb should turn out to be the Trojan horse for Ohio-based funk that we thought he was in the beginning?

That's nonsense, of course.

Bigg Robb has as much claim to being the heart and soul of chitlin' circuit music as anyone. He is Latimore's true heir: the current king of the southern soul voice-over.

Bigg Robb's generation--Robb, Sir Charles, T.K. Soul--has taken over. The old stars are nearly all gone, and SHOWTIME is yet another testament that we're in good hands.

Contributors to this CD, many of them longtime family members and Bigg Robb collaborators dating back to the Problem Solvas days, include Sure 2 Be (Bass, Guitar, Keyboards, Vocals), R-3 (drums and vocals), Eddie Cotton (guitar), Timothy Barnes (keyboards), Goldie Mack (guitar), Bart Thomas (vocals), Omar Cunningham (vocals), Toia Jones, Alice & Odessa Bledsoe, Tiffanie Troutman, Constance Tatum, Antoinette Jones & Alexandria McFadden (vocals), Curtis Foster (vocals), Randy Villars (saxophone), Danny Smith (guitar), Tony Williams (guitar) and Kurt Clayton (keyboards, organ).

Daddy B. Nice notes:

The theme and title song of Bigg Robb's GOT MY WHISKEY PARTY are taken from one of the late Mel Waiters' signature classics, "Got My Whiskey." The album is a curious mixture of re-issues ("Green Crown," "Please Don't Judge Me"), remixes ("Pop Dat Monkey," "Good Good," "Work That Sexy"), guest appearances ("You Can Get It" featuring Toia Jones), recycled collaborations ("BYOB" with Mel Waiters, "Blues & BBQ" with Denise LaSalle) and new product ("Shothouse," "I Love You"). Bigg Robb fans who are familiar with his catalog should check the track list carefully before buying. If desirous of hearing original work from Bigg Robb, fans would be better off buying his last CD Showtime, if they have not already done so. The reviews of GOT MY WHISKEY that I have seen, however, are all positive.
