I remember my review of B.o.B‘s debut album, B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray to a friend: “It’s the best sound the world has ever heard since the first caveman banged two rocks together”. I was a huge fan since the Hi! My Name Is B.o.B days. Post-Strange Clouds, my fandom waned so much over the years and probably took the biggest dive after his unnecessary “Control” response that ended with him playing a guitar.
Fortunately, Neil Degrasse Tyson’s biggest enemy has been continuously releasing self-produced projects and pushing his label, No Genre (S/O to Scotty ATL!). Back in May, I saw some tweets about B.o.B’s new album from everyone favorite blogger, Yoh, and decided to give it a listen while on my walk. I was shocked that it was so good. I recommend everyone check out “Peace Piece” with Big K.R.I.T, “Big Kids” featuring Cee-Lo & Usher, “Middle Man”, and the best song about strippers and conspiracy theories “Tweakin” co-starring Young Dro & London Jae. Another one of the standouts has a visual that fits the song and reminds everyone that Bobby Ray was introduced to the game as an original personality that was needed.
