Fat, White, and Crunked Up
Ever wondered about the ethnographic background of the rapper known to the world as Bubba Sparxxx, née Warren Anderson Mathis? Those without cable might think he's black, since they were rocking him hard on 99 Jamz right up until the Big Lip Bandit exclaimed, "This dude is white!" Since his major-label debut, 2003's Deliverance, and collabo with Timbaland on the party jam "Ugly," the backwater Georgia native has been moving steadily along and has just released Charm on ATL hero Big Boi's Purple Ribbon label. Bubba can definitely rock the mic from time to time, although the atrocity he recently perpetrated on the world with "Ms. New Booty" is no indication of usually unorthodox, twang 'n' bounce delivery. Let's welcome the dude to the true Dirty South South Florida, that is and find out what a 250-pound MC from the sticks can really do.
Bubba Sparxxx plays at 10 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at Revolution, 200 W. Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $15. Call 954-272-0950.
