B.o.B, the multi-talented rapper, rocker, producer from Atlanta, refuses to be bound by genre and continues to break barriers with his latest effort, Underground Luxury. B.o.B first broke through with his critically acclaimed mixtape Cloud 9 in 2006 before dropping his Gold certified debut album, B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray, which featured the smash hits “Airplanes” featuring Haley Williams of Paramore, and “Nothing On You” featuring Bruno Mars, which was nominated for a Grammy for Record of the Year.
Building on the success of his debut, B.o.B released Strange Clouds, his sophomore studio album, which featured appearances from Lil’ Wayne and Taylor Swift, and production support from Dr. Luke and Ryan Tedder. Strange Clouds debuted at the number 1 spot on Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart and Top Rap Albums chart, and peaked at the number 5 spot on Billboard’s Top 200 chart! Now, B.o.B is back with the highly anticipated Underground Luxury. The dynamic third outing from B.o.B features appearances from 2 Chainz, Chris Brown, T.I., Juicy J, Mike Fresh, and Future.
So what are the fortunate few who have had a preview of Underground Luxury saying?
