B.o.B Wants Rap Album of the Year Grammy Above All

Last week, the Grammy nominations were announced, and B.o.B was among the leaders across the board—earning five nominations.

Although “Record of the Year”, for “Nothin’ On You,” is one of the awards he could possibly win, the former XXL Freshman says he has his sights set on “Rap Album of the Year,” for his debut LP, B.o.B. Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray.

“This is the first time and my first album release,” he told “You only have one time to release your first album and for me I would have to say that [I want to win Rap Album of the Year]. But, at the same time, going home with a Grammy—a Grammy is still a Grammy.”

As for what he’s going to wear to the big night in February, Bobby—who has been recognized in the part for his fashion sense—is still unsure.

“There’s a huge plethora in the fashion world to do,” he said, still mulling over his options. “I think whatever it is, it’s definitely gonna be custom made. It could be something Alexander McQueen. I could get G-Starr Raw to make something custom. I don’t know. It just depends if I go more the formal route or the urban route. I might do both.”

Earlier this week, B.o.B dropped his new mixtape, No Genre, which you can download here. —Adam Fleischer with reporting from Jesse Gissen
