The hunger is real. That’s the message I first get listening to Bobby Capri’s album Remote Viewing, even if he’s signed to a record label. Though he’s got his first taste of fame and is on the come up, he wants much more and is going sling slang-syllables in order to get there. With the first track “Make Moves” the message is clear – Capri can’t and won’t stay stagnant. Coming from Virginia, it’s not ironic that he has Freddie Gibbs featured on this song. Gibbs comes from Gary, Indiana and knows plenty about the struggle of making one’s name from a place without a whole lot of fame or influence. Gibbs helps attach a rocket to Capri’s memo on wanting more.

Throughout the album the claim remains the same. In “Room Full of Strangers” Capri talks about coming up surrounded by people who have already made it, saying, “I never had a silver spoon, but I will soon.” It remains the same in “Nothing Else” as Capri doesn’t want to become disillusioned by the grandeur lifestyle and the frauds and fakes that come with it.

Capri has other tracks on the album that exemplify his rapping ability with “Gucci Loafers” and “Kool Aid”. “Gucci Loafers” has a shout out to Biggie Smalls, (as well as the track “Make Moves”) with Capri’s first line. The beat that goes with it is distinctly familiar with Wu-Tang Clan’s song “Method Man”. “Kool Aid” has a much more relaxed, jazzy vibe to it which changes the pace of the album in a way that allows the listener to sit and observe Capri’s unique style and flow.

Bobby Capri brings it all to the table in regards to his style and message in Remote Viewing. The production is solid throughout. It ranges from aggressive snares to precise piano interludes, which creates a complete album full of energy and a sense of thirst that can only be quenched with success. Capri’s last track, “Never Fall Short” brings the album full circle with almost a warning to the world, “I never fall short of any goal set.” It’s not just a line in the chorus, it’s thunderous claim that Bobby Capri is hungry, and he will do whatever it takes to get his fill.
