scott crego One of my favorite bands to see live, this album doesn't disappoint. Plenty of hooks, kind of reminds me of a more up tempo Hellogoodbye. Miss seeing them in the southeast. Favorite track: NASA.

Listen, me and Keisha had an agreement. I’m not even ‘spose to be telling ya’ll this much! But I woke up one day I felt in my heart of hearts that at the very least the name Keisha needed to spoken to the people. Of course I had to say a couple more things while I was on the mic, which I do apologize for. Ok I gotta get outta here, I’m technically supposed to be waiting by the phone for Keisha to call, but its been two years and no word. I know what you’re thinking, ‘Why would I be sitting by a phone waiting for a call in the prime of my life?’ When she put that thang down I saw the light! And there ain’t no light switch for this one guys. Last thing, if you have a beautiful woman by your side right now kiss her on the forehead and tell her she’s the only one your heart beats for. And if its too early for that kinda talk wait til she stands up and give her a re-affirming hug. She’ll understand.

If you want me you can find me With all the scenes around me With all these smiles about me I'm in the last place that you saw me Kisses on your post card Stay with me we'll go far In a small and round about way I built up all my nerve to say... Will you love me now forever, I put the top down Get ready right now I'm waiting outside So let your hair down I ain't got a lot of money but I packed a lil lunch And I'm really really funny Or we can play cards Listen to ray Charles We all alone now Just us and these stars I can day dream all night with you Will you love me now forever?!

What can I say? I loved you in the worst way I’m lonely now and I haven’t slept in 3 days So far so good I’m better off than last year I got my band and we gone keep on rocking so I KEEP ON DANCING I JUST KEEP ON DANCING UH HUH!! I was ridin’ on 4 hunnit Got a concert at bout 3 I ain’t never had no money I don’t ride in limousines And you can keep on talking That’s just minor frequencies We got all the love we need So above al things We gone KEEP ON DANCING I JUST KEEP ON DANCING UH HUH!! Here’s the part where I tell you that its gonna be okay. 3 hours before I sat down to type these lyrics I was at a local grocery store that allowed you to get cash back from a self checkout machine. I withdrew $40 and then I FORGOT IT. I went back and sure enough its gone and no one can help me. The manager told me that they could check the camera and at least see who took and possibly fire the employee if it were one. I told her no. Charge it to the game people. Life is so hard. And that’s without all the stupid mistakes we make as people. You gotta keep on dancing people. Dance right through the sadness if only to make it to the Joy in the Morning.

I’ll be the rock in your shoe Who messes up all of your feelings The sharp side of all of your truths Who sticks through the skin just to harm you And I’ll make sure that we both agree That last night was nothing but playtime And I’m sure by now you’d want to leave And tell all your friends that I’m going down BUT IF YOU STAY I’LL BE THERE IN THE END I’ll be the crack in your cane Who scares you when you think foundation And I’ll be that slight chance of rain That hangs over head when you’re lonely The smoke you can smell but can’t see You sense that there’s trouble but you do not know And I’m sure by now you’d want to leave And tell all your friends that I’m going down BUT IF YOU STAY I’LL BE THERE IN THE END I’m not a perfect man I’ve been across the land and I’ve Seen love both far and wide But I’m trying to do a better job There was a time when I Would disregard my fear of love But now I’m on hands and knees and I’m begging you to stay. But if you go I’ll use the money the fame forget about the pain I’ll use it. (now start the cd over and you’ll get what BIG BOY BALLER CLUB is all bout)

about

"What with Mike D busy getting photographed by the New York Times in his well-appointed Brooklyn town house, someone had to pick up the “Fight For Your Right (to Party)” mantle, or watch the whole enterprise given over to self-seriousness and poise. Enter Atlanta quintet Baby Baby, the perfect men for the job. Channeling the Beastie Boy’s silly irreverence and party-rockin’ spirit, Baby Baby blend pop/punk songwriting with a hip-hop swagger and an emphasis on the live experience, which is something akin to the party scene in a teen movie, only everyone there can drink, and the party’s actually fun.

Baby Baby convened in the summer of 2009, when singer/guitarist Fontez Brooks and drummer Grant Wallace shook off the sleepiness of the suburbs and set out to bring a new element to the Atlanta scene. Packed with unfriendly, broody artists, hostile hardcore kids and the strip-club rap scene on the creepy fringes, The A simply needed some fun rock. And that’s what Baby Baby — which has since expanded to include percussionist Colin Boddy, bassist Kyle Dobbs and Ryan Burruss on keys — delivers on their sophomore album, Big Boy Baller Club, the follow-up to 2011’s Money, out April 1 on the Gospel of Rhythm Recordings.

Baby Baby is a big, inclusive tent. There’s room under it for friends, foes, Nickleback fans, even haters; we all need someone to keep us in check, don’t we? All they ask is that you come ready to dance and make some new friends on the floor. They’ll take care of the rest."

"Bad Brains and Kings Of Leon had a baby that was styled by In Living Colour and was raised by Lamar of Revenge Of The Nerds" - Clark Westfield (The Gay Blades)

"Catchy, fun, and totally chaotic ...canned optimism of the Andrew WK variety." - Afropunk.com

"Whether it’s Fontez gargling his vocals like an inebriated Louis Armstrong then switching gears, and delving into a soulful, yet eccentric, singing style that brings to mind fellow Georgian Andre 3000, or Grant hammering the skins like he is stirring up a war dance while Kyle’s fleet fingers work his six-string bass with precision... it is obvious that these boys are having a blast. – Performer
