Where Are They Now?: 2009 Freshman Recap
The Atlanta rapper’s hustle hasn’t gone unnoticed. Before his debut album, B.o.B. Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray, hit store shelves in April 2010, the Grand Hustle signee caught listener’s ears with his debut single, the infectious Bruno Mars-assisted track “Nothin’ On You.” His follow-up, the Alex da Kid-produced “Airplanes” featuring Paramore’s Hayley Williams was impressive, but it was his first hit that garnered him three Grammy nods. Add on the fact that he’s sold more than 531,000 copies of his debut LP and scored commercials with the likes of Adidas and EA Sports, and it’s safe to say Bobby Ray is ahead of his class.
