Despite feeling like he has been in the music world for a lifetime, B.o.B is only 28 years old. Throughout his career though, he’s nabbed several Top 10 singles, and added some Gold and Platinum plaques to his name. With his deal with Grand Hustle/Atlantic Records done, Bobby Ray is taking the independent route for his forthcoming fourth album titled Ether.
Ether marks B.o.B’s first album since 2013’s Underground Luxury. Between December 2015 and August 2016 he released four mixtapes, one titled after each classical element.
“It’s about balance these days,” he says. “If you look at my career, there’s been a story arc. On The Adventures of Bobby Ray, Bobby goes on an adventure. He smokes some Strange Clouds afterwards. Then, he goes to the nightclub and does urban music in Underground Luxury. He takes some psychedelic mushrooms, has an awakening, and drops conscious projects like Psycadelik Thoughtz. Now, I want to take everything and have fun in this culmination called ETHER. I’ve always believed knowledge plus experience equals wisdom. The experience is kicking in.” To kick things off, B.o.B debuts a video for the first single, “4 Lit,” featuring T.I. and Ty Dolla Sign. The album itself is slaed for a May 12th release.
