Houston, Texas emcee Roosh Williams released his latest project, Drobots: The Reboot, today (October 1). The five-track EP was produced by Like of Pac Div. Like is also a featured guest on the release, as is fellow Houston rapper Devin The Dude.
In August, Roosh Williams was selected by Simple Mobile to participate in the company’s Game Changer campaign. As part of the campaign, Roosh was featured in a webseries on the Houston Hip Hop scene and challenged to create an EP in one day.
“Getting the opportunity to work with Like was incredible,” Roosh said in an exclusive statement to HipHopDX. “He brought an entirely different vibe and sound than I’m used to, and I was able to feed off of it almost immediately.
“And as far as working with Devin The Dude,” he continued, “it’s simply an honor. It’s the kind of thing you work so hard for that when you’re actually in the studio with Devin, it doesn’t even seem real. There isn’t time to stop and enjoy the moment, so you have to make sure you maintain focus and make something that can stand the test of time.”
Roosh also detailed the creation of one track from the project, “Water.”
“Personally, I think Bruce Lee is awesome,” Roosh said. “I find some of his interviews to be pretty amazing, so I wanted to incorporate that into the project. In the quote on ‘Water,’ he talks about how water is adaptable. It can flow smoothly, or it can be violent and crash down on you. He advises the listener to be ‘like water,’ and we decided to put this idea on wax.
“The first part of the song is where I’m flowing seamlessly through the beat,” he continues. “And then it switches and the production gets more hectic and sounds like controlled chaos.”
