"...I guess 2010 is the first year you gave a shit..." For most people that quote may be true but for many of Bobby Ray's fans, we "gave a shit" since 08. While I will admit that I haven't been a fan of B.o.B. since his first release (The Future), I have been a fan since "Who The Fuck Is BoB?" which was released in 2008. I failed to realize how much music Bobby Ray released before his debut album. Several songs including Lonely People, Camera, Use Your Love, and Cloud 9 appeared on mulitple mixtapes and rightfully so. They all exemplify Simmons' ability to create music outside the box without missing a step. Many including myself would argue that he is best when working outside the box. The two songs that made me a fan of B.o.B were "I'll Be In Da Sky" and "Generation Lost". A quick listen to either song will give you a taste of B.o.B's electic musical style as well as his self-aware/conscious lyrics. Seeing how you already know B.o.B and are familiar with his style, let's just get right to the music.
