It turns out that B.o.B. is basically just a teenager in a Twisted Sister video after all. After releasing his second album Strange Clouds earlier this year, Bobby Ray has expressed an eagerness to switch gears on his upcoming effort, a yet-untitled EP that he says will be a more rock-oriented affair.
“I’ve been holding back so much rock for so long,” says B.o.B. of the switch-up. (MTV’s itals) “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.”
Anyway, this should be interesting, since the only rock we know of to come from Bobby so far is that Vampire Weekend sample on his debut and T.I.’s allusion on Drake’s “Fancy” to how a woman “play these suckers just like B.o.B. play the guitar,” later sampled on Ray’s own “Play the Guitar.”
