    B.o.B, "How Life Changed" [Excerpt from XXL May 2012 Issue] ...

    A few days ago, B.o.B was in Las Vegas filming an MTV spring break special at the palms hotel. While in town, he also attended a Young Jeezy concert and hung out with Big Sean. On this March afternoon, he sits in a midtown Manhattan Italian restaurant with Las Vegas still on his mind. “What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas—except for the hangover,” he says with a hearty laugh. “The hangover after Vegas is head-throbbing.” But that’s not enough to sideline him—Bobby Ray Simmons Jr. is in New York City to work.

    Later today, he’ll hit the studio to complete the intro to his sophomore album, Strange Clouds, out this month. The album, he says, is 99 percent done, barring “a miracle.” Before that, however, he’ll record a song with jam band O.A.R. for a Duracell battery ad campaign set to run during the Summer Olympics. B.o.B hasn’t listened to the band’s music yet and plans on winging it tonight.

I have waited for a rapper like this to come around for a long time!!! Rappers like Common, Guru, Roots, OutKast and Goodie Mob have always been my cup of tea. For along time I felt that that the industry had lost good quality until now! Keep it Comming B.O.B. !!! This Miami Girl loves it!
