B.o.B Discusses Upcoming Rock EP, Names Wish List Of Rock Collaborators

B.o.B preps the release of an upcoming album and Rock EP.

B.o.B only recently dropped off his sophomore album Strange Clouds, but he's already to branch out for his next project. During an interview with Shade 45's Sway in the Morning, Bobby Ray spoke on his upcoming Rock EP that he plans to drop in 2013 and says that he's been working on it for some time.

"Man, 2013, I would expect an album from B.o.B and a Rock EP as well," he said. "My Rock EP is like... I take pride in my work and I'm not going to do something just to say that I can do it if I ain't really passionate about doing it. I'm very passionate about my music. Sometimes I take it too seriously. But this Rock EP, I've been working on it for a long time actually. Because that type of music, you gotta let it marinate for a minute. You can't just deep-fry that."

Though he's collaborated with a few Rock artists in the past, the Grand Hustle signee says that he has a wish list of artist with whom he'd like to hit the studio.

"I can tell you who I'd like to work with as far as Rock legends. Definitely Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters. Of course Linkin Park. Actually, I already worked with Travis Barker on a couple of things. Gotta let the drummer get some. Possibly Paramore, Hayley Williams. We collaborated before [on 'Airplanes'], but I want to collaborate on the Rock side."

    This guy fell off hard.. And that's the worst 'dream collabs' I've ever seen... Motherfucking teenybopping rock.. Why's there no rappers who wanna work with some real rockers? Nick Cave & Scarface doing murder ballads together for instance.. Now THAT would be a rap/rock combo I'd pay to see, fuck a paramount & b.o.b.

    hip hop heads stay losin'. the rock EP was supposed to be an album, be grateful he relegated that to an EP... basically we won't have to pay a dime for it. so what's the big deal? tryna shit on a nigga for wantin to be experimental.. B.o.B plays like five different instruments, as an aspiring music producer I respect him for wanting to branch out, even if for a second. besides, that guarantees his next LP will be straight hip-hop

  • jay

    even the rock heads you want a collab with suck. go away.

  • yeaaahh

    I wish hip-hop heads would stop trying to limit this dude.. He's one of the most talented artists in music and you want him to only rap?? How about you be more open-minded and listen to something else besides hip-hop.

      Co-fuckin-sign. Well said @yeaaahh, B.o.B. is an artist, that sums up pretty much everything about him. Dude is way bigger than where he is now, probably the only one in hip-hop who could make a successfull rock, or at least rap/rock crossover album. I've heard him on everything from pop through techno / dubstep to raggae-like records, and he is the beast, regardless of the genre. Why one would limit himself to one lane, when he could have the talent to be successfull in multiple ones?

    • yeaaahh

      No, B.o.B is an artist! He plays instruments, raps, and sings.. Wayne used autotune over rock influenced beats. There's a difference.
