B.o.B "Strange Clouds" Artwork

UPDATE #3: B.o.B reveals the artwork for his upcoming sophomore album "Strange Clouds."

During his visit to New York City, Atlanta rapper B.o.B stopped through Power 105.1 to speak with The Breakfast Club on a variety of topics including T.I., the phases B.o.B’s gone through musically, and a possible release date for his next album titled Strange Clouds.

According to B.o.B, following T.I.’s release from prison last week the rapper has gone on to record close to 30 songs.

“But he’s recording like Tupac now. The first week he got out he did like 30 songs,” said B.o.B. “Not even exaggerating, ‘bout 30 songs when he got out. The whole first week…I feel like he’s just at a point where he knows what he wants to say so it don’t take a long time to do it.”

As an artist who seems to maneuver his way between pop and Hip Hop tracks B.o.B explained that he’s always seemed to go through phases in his music.

“For me I feel like I been going through phases. And I feel like I’mma always go through phases,” he explained. “When I first started the first song I ever released was ‘Cloud 9.’ And that was like a smoker’s anthem. The first whole half of the song I was just singing on it…I  kinda went through that phase. Went through [an] alternative phase where all I wanted to do was make rock music. Now I just feel like rapping. I feel like naturally I’mma sing, throw a melody here and there but I’m in emcee mode now.”

Lastly, B.o.B revealed a possible date for his sophomore album Strange Clouds.

“Man we gonna get that I’mma say [in] March. I’m aiming for early March. I don’t wanna say too much,” said B.o.B.

      That, was CORNY whiteboy. Now I understand. A lot of you are from places like North Dakota, Iowa, Montana, Minnesota, Ohio, Kansas. Country kids who need this internet thing to make you feel like you are a part of the big world out there. Your Black or Hispanic "friend" is nothing but your cool points, you're the person who uses the racial slur immediately when they aren't around. Even your peers laugh at you for using too many gay references and listening to too much "Nigg*r music". The internet is the only place where you can speak and people reply to you because your parents are too busy and you really don't have friends. There are actually girls around but you are so socially inept that they don't bother with you. You don't even like rap music, it's just what you see on cable and it's cool. You need this so bad that you sat and conjured up how to talk "black", and actually posted it thinking it was funny. #epicfail

    How does a rapper announce his lead single went platinum one day, then announce the album got pushed back the next?!

    My Rule: If a rapper delays his release date, I get it illegally instead of paying my own money for it. Truth.

    • Anonymous

      No one admits on the web that they purposely illegally download and expects no type of ramifications whatsoever. Just stop it.

      My Rule: If a rapper has a good song but a not-so-great album and the rapper himself is not that great, I illegally download just that one song. Otherwise, I pay for everything. Why wouldn't you?

    100% chance of getting delayed and that shit is ridiculous. The only reliable release dates are for movies. In order of reliability: 1. Movies 2. Books 3. Games 4. Prison release 5. Albums
