I was a little skeptical of this whole “Travie” thing at first, not going to lie. Charming as Mr. McCoy is on his own, a big part of the appeal of Gym Class Heroes is, y’know, the other three dudes in the band who are all really good at their respective instruments. So to see McCoy on stage without them was a worrisome concept for me as a supporter of the Gym Class dynamic. And though “Billionaire” took a good deal of time to warm to, the rest of the tracks of McCoy’s solo debut proved to be much easier to swallow. In an unexpected twist of irony, it turns out McCoy can T-Pain through a song better than … well, T-Pain. One Supergrass-sampling track later, and I was conceding this round to Travie. Just as long as he doesn’t stay separated too long from Disashi, Eric and Matt. - Brien Overly
