B.o.B Says Rock Album Is On The Way In 2013 [Video]

B.o.B. is ready to test the waters in something other than hip-hop. Rock N Roll: say hello to Bobby Ray. The Grand Hustle signee who released his sophomore album Strange Clouds in May, already has a rock EP in the works. During a recent interview with Sway in the Morning on Shade45, the ATL artist discussed dropping the rock project and another rap album in 2013.

“I would expect an album from B.o.B and a Rock EP as well,” he told Sway. “My Rock EP is like… I take pride in my work and I’m not going to do something just to say that I can do it if I ain’t really passionate about doing it. I’m very passionate about my music. Sometimes I take it too seriously. But this Rock EP, I’ve been working on it for a long time actually. Because that type of music, you gotta let it marinate for a minute. You can’t just deep-fry that.”

He also confirmed some of the artists he would like to work with. “Definitely, Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters. Of course Linkin Park,” he added. “Actually, I already worked with Travis Barker on a couple of things. Gotta let the drummer get some. Possibly Paramore, Hayley Williams. We collaborated before, but I want to collaborate on the rock side.”
