Whatever Happened To Baby Jaymes EP Scheduled For November 15 Release
Critical Praise for Baby Jaymes:
"Baby Jaymes is a hip-hop generation throwback to the days when you just weren‘t hip if you didn‘t have a stack of soul 45s under your arm at all times." - XLR8R Magazine
In anticipation of his forthcoming EP, Whatever Happened To Baby Jaymes, and following the release of his single "Heart & Soul," Oakland bred singer/songwriter Baby Jaymes is excited to release his latest single, "Bump My Head." On "Bump My Head," a combination of lush keys, pulsating horns, and a smooth bassline provide the perfect backdrop for Baby Jaymes to tell a tale of falling victim to the temptations of a pretty lady, all the while ignoring the warnings of friends.
As he continues to trail blaze his self-anointed genre of Ghetto Retro, Baby Jaymes is refusing to be put in a box, pushing the envelope and redefining what a modern day urban singer is 'supposed' to sound like. Refreshingly soulful, with "Bump My Head," Baby Jaymes gives an answer to those who wondered Whatever Happened To Baby Jaymes: he's doing just fine.
Baby Jaymes' new EP, Whatever Happened To Baby Jaymes, will be released November 15th.

Born and bred in Oakland, CA singer/songwriter Baby Jaymes grew up with soul music running through his veins. He is a seasoned musical veteran with a critically-acclaimed album, The Baby Jaymes Record, as well as collaborations with his mentors, Bay Area R&B legend Raphael Saadiq of Tony! Toni! Toné! and funk innovator George Clinton of Parliament-Funkadelic. There’s an edge to his music and arrangements that lead many to compare him to Prince, George Clinton, and Andre 3000, and his unique sound has led him to create his own genre, "Ghetto Retro." Bridging the gap between music and Hollywood, Baby Jaymes has had songs credited to motion pictures, including Malibu's Most Wanted, My Baby's Daddy, and Any Given Sunday. Occasionally referred to as "The Black Beck," Baby Jaymes' new EP, Whatever Happened To Baby Jaymes, will be released November 15th.
