Ahead of upcoming LP Strange Clouds
(out May 1), B.o.B has released a B.o.B-less promo video for new tune “Where Are You (B.o.B Vs. Bobby Ray)”. The piano-laced jam is somewhat in the Eminem “Stan” vein, as it’s from the perspective of three different people: one an old friend who laments how much the rapper has changed since he became famous; one a longtime fan who also rakes the MC over the coals for not sticking to his roots; and the third is B.o.B himself. Listen below.
We’ve just received the weather forecast for May 1, and it looks to be: strange, with a chance of telekinesis. Stripper-loving rapper B.o.B has unveiled the covert art for his LP Strange Clouds, and there is indeed something unusual about the cloud featured here — for one, it’s indoors, and for another, the “So Good” singer seems to have conjured it up using only his mind. Neat trick! See the full-sized artwork after the jump. More »

If you tried to visit a number of websites today and were unable to view their content, don’t be alarmed: it’s due to the protest of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and the Protect IP Act (PIPA) bills, which were created to stop online piracy and protect copyright owners, but could allow the government to censor practically anything on the Internet. You’d think musicians would be all for protecting their music from piracy, but artists, such as B.o.B, Kreashawyn, OK Go and more, have made it clear that this bill, if passed, will do more harm than good.

“Why you all in my face, you ain’t even in my circle, dawg, you ain’t even in my loop,” B.o.B brags in his E.P.I.C.
mixtape track “How Bout Dat”, which features Future and Trae Da Truth. You know who is
in the “Strange Clouds”
hit-maker’s circle? A pack of strippers, that’s who. The ATL MC lays with, throws cash at and dances with these fine young ladies in the club in his video for the track. (Guess he upgraded from the swimming pool
, which probably started to make him wrinkle like a prune?) Watch B.o.B’s latest masterpiece below, music lovers!
Is Obama a huge Maroon 5, Glee
, and Black Eyed Peas fan? Maybe, maybe not — but he does want their endorsement on his 2012 re-election. The Commander-in-Chief already has stars like Lady Gaga
on his team, but that didn’t stop him from releasing a “wish list” of celebrities he’d like on board as he bids for a second term. Amongst names we might easily expect to find here, such as B.o.B., Jay-Z, and Alicia Keys, there are such diverse acts as Arcade Fire, Lady Antebellum, the Jonas Brothers, Janelle Monae, Ricky Martin, Regina Spektor, and Vampire Weekend. (Kelly Clarkson
was apparently already spoken for.) Check out the full list of names below. More »
T.I. is prepping both the release of his eighth studio album Trouble Man
, as well as his Throne-like collaborative release with B.o.B. The Man & The Martian.
As if the newly-freed rapper doesn’t have enough on his plate (he also recently gave us the sleaziest verse on Ke$ha’s all-star “Get Sleazy 2.o”
), he’s giving us a taste of new tunes on his latest mixtape, Fuck Da City Up
. Hop below to dive into the full mixtape, which features appearances by Bobby Ray, as well as Jeezy, Trey Songz, Pusha T and Dr. Dre. More »
Following “Strange Clouds
“, another single has blown in from B.o.B’s upcoming sophomore LP. This time it’s the rap/reggae/rock hybrid “Play The Guitar”, which features Andre 3000. Sure, the Outkast MC may have been booted from Beyonce’s “Party” when it came time to shoot the song’s video
, but he’s having a full-on renaissance thanks to a feature on Ke$ha’s “Sleazy 2.0″ remix
and a lengthy verse on this song, “Play The Guitar”. Get your licks in below.
