His first single, 2005's "Slow Down", from his self-titled debut album became a top 10 hit on the U. Billboard Hot 100 chart, receiving a huge amount of radio and TV airplay.
Some years after Mista disbanded, he enrolled in Clark Atlanta University where he majored in Mass Communications, graduating in 2004 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communications.
Discovered while singing on the bus, Bobby V first made his mark as the lead singer in the hit teen group, Mista.
He returned there to appear in the debut episode of Once Upon A Prom aired on MTV May 19, 2007.
He first entered the music scene in 1996, at that time using his real name - Bobby Wilson, with the now-defunct youth quartet Mista.
Immediately impressed by his talents, Ludacris and his business partner, Chaka Zulu (president of DTP) signed V as the first R&B artist on Disturbing Tha Peace Records.
Soon after, V was re-introduced to the world as a solo artist and featured on the hit single, " Pimpin All Over The World " off of Ludacris' multi-platinum selling album " The Red Light District " in 2004.
