What Travie McCoy Would Do With A Billion Dollars

Vibe | March 9, 2010 - 10:25 pm

On his first solo single, “Billionaire,” Gym Class Heroes leading man Travie McCoy bullet-points a pricey wish list, borrowing B.o.B’s “Nothing On You” hook man Bruno Mars to assure his sentiments. The balmy record doesn’t sway too far from Travie’s comical rhyme-and-rock flair. Playing with simple guitar licks and two-tone ska, he confesses that with a billi or two he’d probably “pull an Angelina and Brad Pitt/And adopt a bunch of babies that ain’t never had shit.” Hey, if you’re feeling generous, we’ll take a new crib. —Tracy Garraud
