Bobby V, Who was rumored to be dumped from Def Jam’s roster, recently caught up with DJBooth.net to talk about his transition to become an independent artist. He told the website that he is no longer signed to Disturbing Tha Peace or Def Jam and that the split was amicable. Bobby V separated from his label three weeks before releasing his new EP “Come With Me” and several months before the planned release of his third studio album “Underground Love.” “The decision to leave was totally mine,” said Bobby V. “I sat down with Ludacris and Chaka Zulu, and I explained to them that it was time for me to venture out on my own. They had no problem with it; they are cool with it, no beef at all.” Furthermore Bobby V said that it was time to move on because the years of being under the labels have given him the much-required experience that can propel him to go independent. “I learned a lot, but everybody at DTP and Def Jam gave me the opportunity to kinda step out on faith and do my own thing,” Brown tells the site. “So that’s my goal right now, is kinda trying to do my own thing. I went to college, I have a college degree, so I’m really tryin’ to put all of that into effect. I’m really tryin’ to be a businessman as well as an artist.” With hits like “Slow Down,” “Tell Me,” and “Anonymous,” singer Bobby V became a household name over the past three years. His soon-to-be-released EP “Come With Me” is produced by Bobby V himself with the assistance of Bill Jabar. The EP will be followed by his full-length album entitled “Underground Love,” which will be dropped “probably August or early September, at the end of the summer.” The first single from the album would be “Your Smile” that features Lil Wayne and has been garnering airplays.
