“Drawing heavily from the more lyrically based hip hop acts such as Aesop Rock and Sage Francis, Robbie Menje (better know by his stage name, Bobby Franklyn) is a refreshing take on the entire local scene, possessing one thing that most others don't; talent. Weaving songs of life and heartbreak, he truly transcends and does what you're supposed to do with music and art, using the themes of love and renewal to show the listener that they're not alone, the simple act of putting yourself out there makes all the difference, and this honesty rings true in every rhyme.”
