B.o.B. Shares Details on New T.I.-Produced Single [With XXcLusive Video]

During a red carpet interview at BET’s Rip the Runway, B.o.B. shared details on his new T.I.-produced single, “Fifth Dimension” with XXLMag.com

According to the ATLien, the song was co-produced by both Tip and Grand Hustle’s Lil C and will be featured on his debut album, The Adventures of Bobby Ray.

“It’s a ‘banger,’” the 2009 XXL freshman class alum said, referring to our Web site’s music section. “We got in the studio just playing around with some drums and loops and guitars and some asteroids and we made up ‘Fifth Dimension.’” [Watch below]

As previously reported, the Atlantic release, which was originally scheduled to drop on May 25, was pushed forward to April 27. “I released a mixtape… and for my fan base it kind of built the anticipation and we really trying to ride that wave and ride that anticipation and make the climax appropriate,” he said of the new date.

B.o.B. performed his first official single “Nothing on You” featuring Bruno Mars during Rip the Runway, which taped this past Saturday (February 27) in New York City. The show, which was hosted by Pooch Hall of the TV show The Game and Nicki Minaj, will air on BET on March 16. —Brooklyne Gipson with reporting by Amber Mckynzie

    XXL is just catering to teenagers now. Nothing against B.o.B., because he’s dope. But he’s a newer artist who’s significance to the culture has yet to be determined. If this is considered newsworthy, why can’t the same amount of interest/concern be shown for a pioneer being laid out in a coma after suffering cardiac arrest? This shit is just offensive now.

    Guru, get well soon.

      are you doing ocean 14?

      • George Clooney

        C’mon dude. You can’t do an Ocean’s 14 without a Bernie Mac.

    Calm down, ladies. Don’t take so much offense to everything. They’ve been regularly updating on Guru. Also, this is newsworthy. BOB could possibly impact the game on a pretty large scale later, and if that happened there would haters saying things like, “Why don’t yall do real newsworthy stuff with dudes that are making an impact in the game, like BOB” It’s a lose-lose situation. Go to NahRight or something.

  • George Clooney

    Regularly updating? Oh you mean the one entry where they talked about how he’s stable now? Even though they never reported on it in the first place. Go bite some nuts or something.

  • EReal

    W.H.O.?

  • http://myspace.com/kidpistol Kid Pistol

    And the original entry where they told you he suffered from a heart attack in the first place. What else do you want? Them to tell you what he’s eating?

    Stop trippin.

    Anyways, excited to hear this track.

  • George Clooney

    Ok, let me know when you find that original entry. I heard about it everywhere else. Not here.

    ^ You cannot compare an ‘if’ to a ‘what has already been done’.

    “As previously reported, the Atlantic release”

    ^ This is not news, it’s a press release (promotion). And it’s a repeat with new video footage.

    “Nothing against B.o.B., because he’s dope. But he’s a newer artist who’s significance to the culture has yet to be determined”

    ^ THIS

    Fed Ranga! Son looks like you in that still!

  • jtm

    stop playing get that album out.

    @Syk. You’re right, thank you for the correction my guy. However, I still believe BOB is deserving of a post on XXL.
    and I 2nd that, get the album out.

    • http://www.bboycult.com $ykotic Don McCaine

      I do too. I’m gonna support Bobby Ray’s project, real type. I’m actually more upset T.I. and them didn’t set him up to hold the Hustle down when the king was away (even Young Dro too), but that will be one of my future blogs. Bobby Ray should’ve came out with an album waaaayyy before Wale.

      And even I said the X-spot dropped the ball with the Guru thing, but I still have love for the company. Checking your bros and sisses when they’re wrong should never be an issue, but an act of respect and loyalty.

      Y’all are always welcome to build with the OG $yk! Ain’t nothing wrong with talking to a cat w/experience. I want y’all youngin’s to win. I want to hear them stories from the young father. The 9-5′er who does the rap thing as a hobby. The single female, or the dude who’s thinking about trying this industry. I can tell y’all so many scenarios about the past and the game. It’s only to help your future.

      Let’s do it y’all. Let’s win by keeping the open dialect amongst us, no hate, but trying to show the next one there’s a different way to think and approach things.
