B.o.B. Talks New Album and Fusing Genres

(Radio.com) Back in August, B.o.B. released his fourth album Psycadelik Thoughtz, which bowed at number 10 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and at number seven on the Top Rap Albums chart. In an interview with Billboard, the Atlanta MC discusses his new album, fusing genres, the metaphysical side of life and a lot more.

B.o.B, who was born Bobby Ray Simmons, Jr., opens up in the interview about his new album saying the effort was supposed to be an EP, but morphed into a full-length album after he wrote "Back and Forth." "I felt I needed a project that could be built around that song to help people digest it," the rapper said.

"The goal for this project was to make a cohesive body of work; to really give my fans-for the first time-a project that shows my abilities as a producer, singer and musician."

He also discussed fusing genres saying, "I've always wanted to architect a career through which I can do any type of music I want to do without backlash. I want to get it into people's heads that there isn't one genre that defines what I do. It's all genres." Read more here.
