Everyone’s favorite Redneck rapper Bubba Sparxxx is back after a two-year hiatus with the single “Ghost.” It appears, however, the noticeably slimmed down rapper has taken some notes from the young kids currently making waves in the industry (i.e. Migos, Desiigner, Future).

His cadence is nowhere close to what we’ve heard on 2001’s smash hit, “Ugly.” It almost sounds like Bubba Sparxxx is trying his hardest to imitate what’s popular right now. Although they say imitation is the highest form of flattery, in this case, he would have been wise to stick with what worked in the past.

“Ghost” is the first single from his forthcoming album, The Bubba Mathis EP.
