Bobby Ray Simmons, Jr. (born November 15, 1988), better known by his stage name B.o.B, is an American hip hop recording artist, singer-songwriter and record producer from Decatur, Georgia. He is currently signed under the labels of Grand Hustle Records, Rebel Rock Entertainment, and Atlantic Records. He quickly rose to fame after his debut single “Nothin’ on You“, reached number one in both the United States and the United Kingdom. His second single, “Airplanes“, which also peaked at number one in the United Kingdom and at number two in the United States, respectively, only made him more of a celebrity. B.o.B‘s third single, “Magic“, became his third consecutive top ten hit on the Billboard Hot 100.
After meeting his mentor and co-manager, B. Rich, in 2002 at 14 years of age, B.o.B sold his first beat to former Slip-n-Slide recording artist Citti for a song titled “I’m the Cookie Man“. Meanwhile B.o.B felt he had made it: “I went and blew all of my money on fast stuff like a chain and ballin”. Soon I was broke again, but I learned two important things from it; make sure I save my money and that I was hooked on music”. Back to square one, B.o.B continued performing at open mics and underground venues to perfect his craft. In 2006, because he was underage, B. Rich helped sneak B.o.B into Club Crucial, a night club owned by Atlanta rapper T.I.. There, B.o.B performed a song titled “Cloud 9“, a self -produced, spoken word-like ode to marijuana. In attendance was producer and industry veteran, T.J. Chapman, CEO of TJ’s DJ’s. TJ Chapman agreed to co-manage B.o.B, which only a month later led to B.o.B‘s signing with Atlantic Records and subsidiary imprint Rebel Rock, run by Florida producer Jim Jonsin. His first single for Atlantic, 2007′s “Haterz Everywhere“, reached the top five of Billboard’s Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop singles chart. Along with his solo production career, B.o.B is part of a production/rap group called HamSquad, along with Playboy Tre, TJ Chapman, and B. Rich.
B.o.B was named the ninth Hottest MC in the Game of 2010 by MTV. Preceded by two extended plays and several mixtapes, his debut studio album, B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray was released on April 27, 2010, reaching number one on the US charts and eventually being certified Gold by the RIAA. He released his second studio album, Strange Clouds, on May 1, 2012. He is set to release a collaborative album with Grand Hustle label boss T.I. and a rock music EP in the near future.
On November 15, 2012, B.o.B released his ninth mixtape, entitled Fuck ‘Em We Ball. The mixtape features appearances from T.I., Juicy J, Mac Miller, Playboy Tre, Snoop Lion, Spodee, and Iggy Azalea, with much of the production coming from B.o.B himself. In early December, B.o.B revealed to MTV that he plans to release a rock music-influenced extended play: “I’ve been holding back so much rock for so long. I have been performing with my band for a while, so I guess this is a real good canvas for me to paint on. No one’s really expecting anything so I can do what I want to do.” He also spoke lightly on his third studio album as well: “My album is basically a continuation of The Adventures of Bobby Ray and Strange Clouds. I feel like it kinda bridges the gap between where all my fans are and finally getting everybody up to speed on what my sound is and exactly where I’m going”.
The Grand Hustle rapper helped build his name as a mixtape artist, dropping standout releases including Who the F#*k is B.o.B? and Cloud 9 and E.P.I.C. (Every Play is Crucial). Taking to Twitter to break the news, Bobby Ray revealed that he’s got a street project on the way, though no release date was given. “Announcement: Mixtape Title… #FuckEmWeBall !!!” he wrote. “The world would be entertainment-less w/o wack a$& niccas !!! #FuckEmWeBall !!!”
