Travis Porter debut the street single from their as yet untitled debut album by way of a YouTube animated text half-video, ala that Cee-Lo record that we're all trying to forget. The Phipps Plaza anthem is the type of big banger that they have been producing so effortlessly over the past few years but maybe not quite as big as the past few big ones. They also dropped the Bei Major backed not-street single (sidewalk single?), "Birthday Girl" and it's disappointingly soft handed. Sure the love-rap radio push is inevitable, it's not like Jive would let an album full of "Make It Rain"s through the door, but even so, Travis Porter are usually more creative.
