B.o.B. – Vimana

March 20th, 2023


Summary: Good times with B.o.B.

About Artist: B.o.B has been one of my favorites since 2008. Despite the fact that he is a well documented “free thinking” conspiracy theorist he is a great songwriter, musician, rapper and he definitely has blazed his own trail.

About Song: This song is off of B.o.B’s 7th album “Better than Drugs” (2022). I got to see him at a small venue in Tucson in late 2022 and got a shout out from B.o.B when he saw my “B.o.b. vs Bobby Ray” t-shirt.

Favorite Part: “It’s a thousand of the same faces I can’t differentiate, apеs, I disintegrate. You be playing bеstie with her, I do chest to chest-ie with her” (0:28)

“My whole clique, outside of the norm.
Ain’t no uniform, we do not conform” (0:43)

“Gotta be able to gas yourself, it’s called self esteem.
Don’t let these n****s sell your ass a dream” (1:29)

I love Riff Raff’s line “I’m in the buildin, more gold than Rumpelstiltskin”

And of course B.o.B.’s verse if off the chain..

“Badaboom badabambi
Every day in her hair like Pantene
Pro B, ain’t ready for a family
Fuck family, so she better have a Plan B
Plan B, never mind what the rumors say
Rumors say, never mind what the rumors say
Rumors say, when I walk into a room they say
Bobby Ray, bomaye, bomaye
I’m faded, my eyes are glazin’, dialated
You hate that that nigga made it so you jaded
Your momma, your baby momma, and your lady
Be bumpin’ my music naked while they’re shavin’
Thots be like “Bobby save me, Bobby save me”
But this ain’t no bank for checkin’, ain’t no savin’
I’m never known to accept a limitation
You want it with me well here’s the invitation
Bands, Bobby, there’s no more debatin’, wow I’m just amazin’
Damn, she started gettin’ naked ’till her panties start wavin’
Man, man I’m so sick, I’m so ill
Thermometers cannot monitor my level of chill
Grippin’ the grain, whippin’ the wheel”

T-Pain – Up Down (ft. B.o.B) (prod. by DJ Mustard)

March 10th, 2014

TPain-UpDownftBoBTPain-UpDownftBoBAudio Player
DOWNLOAD MP3 TPain-UpDownftBoB.mp3
Summary: I know it was a radio hit but… I loves it!
About Artist: T-Pain is the autotune king of Buy U a Drank amoung other hits. B.o.B is one of my top favorites in the game right now. If you search this blog you’ll find a lot of B.o.B (songs that are way better than this one). If you want another T-Pain/B.o.B collaboration that didn’t get playtime back in 2010 go Google “T-Pain Trunk Band” (do it!)
About Song: This song was from the summer of 2013 and was the single off of T-Pain’s album. I know it was overplayed on radio and everything but I just really like bumpin this song. Strangely I don’t think B.o.B brought a lot to this track even though I’m a much bigger fan of his than T-Pain.

Behind the scenes, this track was produced by DJ Mustard, a name many aren’t familiar with but was the guy responsible for big hits like Tyga – Rack City, 2 Chainz – I’m different,  B.o.B – Headband, Tyga – Throw it Up, YG – My Nigga, Kid Ink – Show Me,  Ty Dolla Sign – Paranoid,  and the recent Who Do You Love (a remix of which I recently posted here). If you don’t know those songs look them up because I’m sure you’ve heard them.

Favorite Part:
I just Love the chorus! “I  ain’t even know it – EVEN KNOW IT! even know it – KNOW IT ”

B.o.B – Headband (ft. 2 Chainz)

DOWNLOAD MP3BoB-HeadBandft2Chainz.mp3
Summary: #Summer2013 is a recap of the songs that made the summer of 2013 one of the best ever. B.o.B had a summer hit yay
About Artist: B.o.B might be the most musically talented diverse hip hop artist in the game right now. I’ve lovin him for a long time and while he’s mainly gotten radio play on some of his more popier songs, it was great this summer to hear him blowin it up on the radio in a straight up hip hop track with 2 Chainz. 2 Chainz is from Georgia and while he’s been around forever he’s only recently gotten famous. While not too lyrically inclined his unique style and personality has taken him a long way.
About Song: HeadBand is the first song off of BoB’s highly anticipated third album Underground Luxury, which will be more hip hop focused. The album isn’t close to being released but my hopes are sky high.

Favorite Part: 

I love the beat on this song. It’s just a good song to blast out your car.

DOWNLOAD MP3 BoB-Missing.mp3
Summary: Hottt off the presses
About Artist: B.o.B is all over this blog, sometimes I feel like I post him too much, but he has really been cranking out some awesome songs through his career. He is from ATL and runs with T.I’s Hustle Gang. While he gained mainstream popularity with pop songs like Nothin On You (ft. Bruno Mars) he can also go hard on the rap beats too.
About Song This song dropped a couple days ago and is in anticipation to his third album Underground Luxury which will be more hip hop focuses
Favorite Part:
The didgeridoo thing in the beat is dope, and I like BoB’s rap about real issues (poverty, corruption etc) and there are a couple lines I like in particular.

“Seems like since we got a black president
Black people stop questioning the government” (0:05)

“For god sakes there’s an all-seeing eye on the back of the dollar, we can’t even trust money
You need to understand who you dealing.. With
These are like modern day villains
These are type of people that would kill a whole village
Build a fucking building.. And say it’s just business
Who you think gave you religion?
Land of the free.. Who you think built it?” (0:35)

“I don’t need a hook but for hooks sake
If I had a hook, I’d make the hook say
“Be a good slave, be a good slave”
(Be a good slave, be a good slave)” (1:24)

Summary: Sometimes the world is so messed up it makes me feel Out Of My Mind  #EmbraceTheMadness. This is not new but a good song to jumpstart the week.
About Artist: B.o.B. is one of my favorite artists. Not only can he rap but he’s a complete musician.While his career has taken a sharp turn toward pop music I’m still a big Bobby Ray fan.

Favorite Part:
I like around 2:22 when B.o.B. is talking ending in “how am I supposed to pronounce this shit” right before the beat drops.
And the beat is just awesome!

February 13th, 2013

DOWNLOAD MP3 BoB-StillInThisBitchftTIJuicyJ.mp3
Summary: This one’s a banger. Loud speakers required!
About Artist:  If you’ve followed this blog at all you know that B.o.B is one of my favorite artists! He plays instruments, he produces, And he and fcking rap. He comes outta Georgia and while he is known more for his pop music (launching the career of Bruno Mars with the song Nothing On You) he is also keeps it so real on the hip hop world. T.I. also comes out of Atlanta and signed BoB to his Grand Hustle music label a few years back. T.I. has long been recognized as one of the hip hop kings of the south. Juicy J is yet another southern rapper. Juicy J has been in the game since the early 90s as a member of Three 6 Mafia. While Juicy J has always been around he’s seen a huge resurgence as a solo artist with his recent single Bandz a Make her Dance. This track was produced by Mike Will whos been crankin out many hot beats from Atlanta the last several years (check him out!).

I’m pretty sure I like B.o.B’s verse best. And my favorite part is at 0:44

“Got all these pounds of ganja, I work out, I’m doing kushups
Bobby Bands is in the building, pop that pussy throw a foot up In the air,
one time for a nigga like me with a squad like this
With a team so strong with a flow so cold, ain’t nothing but some bad bitches in my clique”

Lloyd – Lay It Down (Remix)(ft. B.o.B, Rock City)

February 22nd, 2011

DOWNLOAD MP3 Lloyd-LayItDownRemixftBoBRockCity.mp3
Summary: Pop Hop
About Artist: Lloyd is a Pop R&B singer. I generally hate the kind of music Llyod makes and I gotta say this song walks a fine line really close to the kind of song that drives me crazy (in a bad way). Rock City is some Caribean R&B duo, don’t know much about them. And then there’s B.o.B. who is the sole reason this song made it up here. If you don’t know, I love B.o.B and you can click HERE for more B.o.B. songs on
About Song: This song is a super successful single off of Lloyds next album which comes out in April, and just for the record I could care less about this album. There is also another remix of this song which features Young Jeezy and R Kelly which you can listen to HERE. This song is super repetitive which I don’t like but it IS super catchy and BoB’s part is pretty cool (like always).
Favorite Part:
Of course the best part is B.o.B’s part 0:30-1:10.

“I do not tap out, round two, round three,
cause I’m never going down like Muhammad Ali,
call me Cashis, when we hit the mattress
you be like oh yup (yup), baby call me randy savage (ooh ya)
you say you want me but be careful what you askin
causeI beat it up like delta does your baggage”
I like how the beat drops out here at 0:58.

B.o.B – Higher (ft. Playboy Tre, Cyhi Da Prince, Bun B)

February 15th, 2011

DOWNLOAD MP3 BoB-HighftPlayboyTre.mp3
Summary: Energy+Rap+Beat = Solid B.o.B
About Artist: B.o.B. (aka Bobby Ray) is one of my favorite artists and you can read other B.o.B posts HERE to read a better bio and hear other tracks. Playboy Tre is a rapper that is one of B.o.B’s original crew. CyHi da Prince recently signed with Kanye’s GOOD Music and Bun B is the famous and well respected rapper from Texas (one half of UGK).
About Song: This is off of B.o.B’s most recent (though not all that new) mixtape No Genre.
Favorite Part:
I love the crazy wacky beat especially when it drops at 0:15.
I like everyone’s verse but especially Bun B’s at 4:09
B.o.B has nominated for 5 Grammys the other night and didn’t win a single one, keeping him Grammyless. I honestly can’t believe that Nothing On You (ft Bruno Mars) didn’t win ANYTHING. To deny that that was one of the biggest songs of the year is just ridiciulous. Check out his performance at the 2011 Grammys below. There is so much talent there between BoB, Bruno Mars, and Janelle Monae. When Bruno sings BoB is on the Guitar when Janelle sing Bruno is on the Drums, I mean THESE GUYS ARE MUSICAL!

B.o.B – Fame

January 29th, 2011

Summary: This song really pumps me up. The horns, the rap ahhh, heaven.
About Artist: I’ve posted B.o.B (Bobby Ray) probably more than any other artist at this point so just look here if you want to reader a better bio from other posts.
About Song:This song is one of my favorites off of B.o.B’s debut album B.o.B presents the Adventure of Bobby Ray. It was produced by a duo that goes by the name The Knux, who I’ve since really gotten into (check them out). The Knux samples a version of Summertime from the forgetable movie Stuck On You (which I never saw). I have to saw I was born the like this song. The genre of the track with it’s horns, guitar, syncopated beats, I mean I would die to get the official instrumental version. Not only that but B.o.B has some great verses over it. The verses are nothing crazzzy lyrically but it’s solid and works so well rhythmically with background.
Favorite Part: First I LOVE the track’s instruments and rythem, absolutely love it (that’s why I included the video of the sample below)

“And I’m sayin I really ain’t with that complaining
Just look at the picture I’m painting
Yeah I paid my rent, vacationing, take trips all around be equator then,
Come back to the A hit the stage again,
Then I go up in the booth where they cage me in,
Feel regular but then I go insane again,
If you witness the condition that my brain is in,
You would see I’m in hell where Satan is…” (1:02)

The Chorus where B.o.B says “that, that that, that” like at 1:44

Popular, everybody wanna be popular
Little kids just be watching us through binoculars and then they go to school and copy us,
But, hey I’m not knocking ya but how can yall not see? its obvious cuz cops just be plottin on us and poparazzi be spottin us,
Cuz everybody just wanna be on MTV or BET
Or maybe season MVP
Or maybe even just prom king or queen
But everybody can’t be a G. O to the D
And everybody can’t be O. to the B.
But I don’t know, maybe this just how its supposed to be” (1:48)

I especially love the part at 1:12 where he says everybody can’t be a G (and then spells GOD) to add a double meaning and then says everybody can’t be “o to the b” when he’s really saying everybody can’t B.o.B.

Check out where B.o.B and The Knux found the sample. I never saw the movie but apparently it’s from a rendition of summertime off of the movie Stuck On You (which I never saw),

J. Cole – Pass Me By (ft. B.o.B)

January 26th, 2011

DOWNLOAD MP3 JCole-PassMeByftBoB.mp3
Summary: A little light for J Cole, but also pretty catchy.
About Artist: J Cole is a young rapper, signed with Jay-Z’s RocNation. As an up and coming artist he has quite the following though his debut album still has no release date or title. His first major appearance was on one of only a few features on Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3. The only song of his that I’ve posted, though he has many good ones is Who Dat. This chorus of this song is sung by B.o.B (aka Bobby Ray) who I post way too much on this blog :)
About Song: This song has been around for a little while now but it was recently rereleased with B.o.B on the hook. The track’s piano really adds to it catchiness which is why I put it up. The same piano really reminds me of Jay-Z’s Hard Knock Life, though thats just me. Other than that the rap is better on the 2nd and 3rd verse, the chorus is OK (though I really like simple beat and chord progression in the chrous).
Favorite Part: “Hey, Dear Mr. Policeman
Hey am I wrong, aint you suppose to keep the peace man?
I coulda swore I was driving pretty peaceful
So why the hell is you pullin over me fo’?
Is it this black Mercedez? (Oh now I get it, I get it, I get it)
Or cause I’m black? Hmmm, maybe
Hey, tell me why my hands start sweatin’ and I hold my breath everytime that you get behind me
I turn my music down, so you won’t hear a sound, man I’m nervous like I got a couple pounds on me
You pulled me over, you frown on me
With your flashlight, tell me what do you see
Thug niggas, drug dealers, its a trip, every nigga in this whip got a mothafuckin college degree” (1:46)

The third verse at 3:10 is also real good.
