B.o.B.’s “I Feed These Streets” Originally Meant for DJ Drama

Earlier today (October 27), former XXL Freshman alum B.o.B. (now known as Bobby Ray) leaked an unreleased track online, titled “I Feed These Streets.” XXLMag spoke with Bobby’s manager, TJ Chapman, about the song, and was informed that the song was originally supposed to be on Grand Hustle label mate DJ Drama’s Gangsta Grillz: The Album, Vol. 2.

According to Chapman, the song was recorded over a year ago, but instead of letting it collect dust, he put it online for fans to hear. “That was supposed to be on Drama’s album,” Chapman told XXL. “Drama had it for over a year and it just ain’t done nothing… We were just like fuck this. This song’s just been sitting too long.”

Chapman says this isn’t the first time fans are hearing the song, though. Somehow it got into the wrong hands and was played over the radio. In fact, he even heard one version with Busta Rhymes and Maino spitting alongside the young Atlanta upstart. But now it has being released as it was initially intended.

As of press time it is uncertain if the track will be included on B.o.B.’s major label debut, The Adventures of Bobby Ray, which is currently slated for a June 2010 release. —Elan Mancini
