  1. Wobble

    "Wobble" is the second single of rapper V.I.C. from his debut album Beast. The single is produced by Mr. Collipark. Before recording this song, he made a track called "Wobble" to introduce the song "Wobble". Both tracks are in the album. Atlanta's V-103 former radio personalty Frank Ski is featured on the song on the intro and bridge, isn't credited as a featured artist. The song finally made its debut on the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart at 89 on June 2, 2011, which is almost three years after its release, and has since peaked at 84. It went on to debut at #94 on the US Billboard Hot 100 on January 7, 2012. The unexpected surge on the charts was fueled by the hustle that was created for it in 2010. The song was used in the premiere episode of The High Fructose Adventures of Annoying Orange.
