83590348 Travie McCoy Of Gym Class Heroes Goes Solo! 

If I had tattoos to compare with Travie McCoy I would have, but since I’m an open canvas we just stuck to music.  You know Travie right?  He’s the lead singer of the [lastfm]Gym Class Heroes[/lastfm] and is soon to release his debut solo album Lazarus in June.  What does this mean for the future of the [lastfm]Gym Class Heroes[/lastfm]?  What should be my first tattoo? 

Travie McCoy’s debut solo album Lazarus drops in stores/online on June 8th.  His first single “Billionaire” ft. Bruno Mars will be available for purchase on Wednseday, March 9th after making its official premiere on MTV today.  What would you do if you were a Billionaire?  I guess I would pay off some bills, buy a house, get a new car, a helicopter, my own clothing line, a house with a room of money I could swim in, invest some and take a vacation.  You know the normal stuff to get started.  Listen up to “Billionaire” to find out what Travie would do with it.  What would you do with a Billion Dollars? 

Contributing artists on McCoy’s debut release include [lastfm]Bruno Mars[/lastfm] and the Smeezingtons, [lastfm]T-Pain[/lastfm], [lastfm]Detail[/lastfm], and [lastfm]The Stereotypes[/lastfm].  

You can get a preview of his solo album at one of his live performances while on his first ever solo tour opening for [lastfm]3OH!3[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Cobra Starship[/lastfm].  There’s two chances to catch him live in the SoCal area on the “Too Fast For Love” tour, check the dates in our “Concerts” section! 

Don’t worry [lastfm]Gym Class Heros[/lastfm] fans, even though his flying solo right now, Travie and the rest of GCH are currently writing for their next album called The PCCII, which is set for release next year.

 “Billionaire” lyrics

I wana be a billionaire
So freakin Bad
Buy all the things I never had
I wanna be on the cover of forbes managize
Smiling next to oprah and the queen
Ohh everytime I close my eyes.
I see my name in shinning lights
A different city everynight
Oh I swear the world better prepare
For when im a billionaire

verse 1

I would have a show like oprah
I would be the host of
everyday christmas
give travvie ya wish list
I probably pull a angelina and brad pitt
adopt a bunch of babies that ain’t never had shit
give away a few mercedes like
here lady have this
and last but not least
grant somebody they last wish
its been a couple months since i been single so
you can call me travvie claus minus the ho ho
get it i probably visit where katrina hit
and damn sure do a lot more than FEMA did
yeah and cant forgot about me stupid
everywhere i go ima have my own theme music

Chorus

Ohh everytime I close my eyes.
I see my name in shinning lights
A different city everynight
Oh I swear the world better prepare
For when im a billionaire

verse 2

I’d be playin basketball with the president
dunkin on his delegates
then I’d compliment him on his
political etiquite (good job)
bust a couple milli in the air just for the heck of it
and keep the 5 20’s 10’s and bens completely separate
yeah id be in a whole new tax bracket
we in recession but let me take a crack at it
id prob take whatever’s left and just split it up
so everybody that i love can have a couple bucks
and not a single tummy around me
would know what hungry was
eatin good sleepin soundly
i know we all have a similar dream
go in ya pocket pull out ya wallet
put it in the air and sing
Chorus
