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.”
