B.o.B Says Joke Inspired Waka Flocka Collaboration

B.o.B’s just getting started.

After releasing a visual to his new single, “So Good,” earlier this week, Bobby Ray is looking forward to a collaboration with fellow ATLien Waka Flocka Flame on his next single. As previously reported, Waka and B.o.B joined forces for a song titled “Fist Pump,” which is set to appear on Bob’s Strange Clouds, as well as Flocka’s Triple F Life: Friends, Fans and Family.

XXLMag.com recently caught up with the Grammy-nominated rapper to get more info on the collaboration.

“I can tell you that the single is gonna be so monstrous I actually hurt my hand making the record,” B.o.B told XXL. “Too much, man. Too much fist pump.”

B.o.B’s no stranger to blurring genres. The lead single and title track to his sophomore LP, Strange Clouds, is a dubstep-tinged number featuring Lil Wayne. Like Waka, Bob promises that “Fist Pump” will be Jersey Shore-esque, sonically.

“It’s really both [bouncy and electro], man,” he revealed. “It’s funny ’cause it started as a joke. Waka was like, ‘Man, we need to make one of them fist pump records.’ I was like, ‘Fuck it. Let’s just make a fist pump record and call that bitch, ‘Fist Pump.’ So we put it together, and it came out excellent. You get into the studio with Waka, man, he always turnt up. You can’t help, but get crunk at the studio with Waka. So it’s a great record. It’s whatever he wanna do with it, so it should be coming out pretty soon.”—Carl Chery (@cchery)

    All he makes is watered down pop music. Blending shit with more shit is not creative. Bob sucks, fuck him and his shitty music. He sounds like Flo Rida and Black Eyed Peas, the crappy spectrum of (if you can call it) hip-hop.

  • rock n’ roll

    when your mom and dad were blending shit you think they were trying to be creative

  • Real Hip Hop

    @hiphop: It’s hilarious that you chose that name, because you obviously know nothing about hip hop. B.o.B. is one of the best lyricists in the game right now, UNLIKE Flo-rida and the Black Eyed Peas, who are both pop/electronic artists. You’re blending your ideas, because B.o.B. is not a pop artist.

  • Technique

    BoB just does his own thing. He sings and he can spit his ass off! Everything he touches is dope

  • TRUE Hip Hop

    @ Real Hip Hop: LMAO, B.o.B. one of the best lyricists in the game. gtfoh. he’s somewhat creative, but he fell OFF. Dungeon Family reject.
