Bubba Sparxxx biography (bio):
Warren Anderson Mathis is known by his stage name Bubba Sparxxx, is an American Southern rapper. In addition to the commercial success of his "Ms. New Booty," Sparxxx is most notable for his hit singles "Ugly" and "Deliverance" and for achieving success as a country rapper. A pioneer of country-rap, his most notable hit is "Ms. New Booty" featuring The Ying Yang Twins which peaked at 7 in the United States.
Sparxxx was born in LaGrange, Georgia. His first commercial CD release saw some success in Georgia, and the album Dark Days, Bright Nights caught the attention of Jimmy Iovine of Interscope Records. He signed to Interscope and began working with record producers Timbaland and Organized Noize. The major-label version of Dark Days, Bright Nights (released via Timbaland's Beat Club Records imprint), which now included five collaborations with Timbaland and two with Organized Noise, debuted at #3 on the Billboard Music Charts. In 2002, he had a minor hit being featured on Archie Eversole's "We Ready", which became popular for being played at sport events, such as football and basketball games. In late 2003, he returned with his second album, Deliverance (again through Beat Club Records) which was critically acclaimed, but a poor seller. The poor sales of this critically adored album were attributed to an unclear classification of Bubba; it is believed that the album was too hip-hop for a rock audience and too rock for a hip-hop audience. His latest album, The Charm (2006), is much more conventional and as a result has generated impressive sales in addition to two hit singles ("Ms. New Booty" and "Heat It Up"). He is signed to Big Boi's (of OutKast fame) Purple Ribbon Label, distributed through Virgin Records. He has just wrapped up work on a mixtape, due August 17, 2007, entitled "Survive Till Ya Thrive," hosted by DJ Burn One and featuring all new material. Bubba has also moved to Tampa, stopped drinking and smoking, and is currently at work on his next official solo album, "Twice On Sunday," due Spring 2008.
He has also appeared in the video games Def Jam: Fight for NY (2004) and Madden 2004.
