B.o.B. Presents: The Adventures Of Bobby Ray - 2010-
(Rap, Hip-Hop)

From: Atlanta

In spite of the plethora of rap artists constantly emerging from Atlanta in the late 2000s, B.o.B, who was only 17 when he signed his first major-label record deal, was still unique. His borderline eccentricity and artistic mind, belied by his music's conventional Dirty South appeal, raised his stock above the many copycat Southern up-and-comers and, of course, welcomed comparisons to OutKast and, specifically, their offbeat half, André 3000. Bobby Ray Simmons now 21, has created an album full of genre-defying hip-hop tracks. The album features a variety of guests including, Bruno Mars, Lupe Fiasco, Hayley Williams, T.I. and Eminem. This is the work of a very talented and creative artist who at a very young age is already stretching the very boundaries of a genre. A couple of really cool tunes here.
