One of ATL’s finest rappers, B.O.B has released his fourth album which also marks his first independent release since leaving Atlantic. The star-studded 12-track[Ether] set boasts some of hip-hop and R&B’s biggest names, including Lil Wayne (“E.T.”), Big K.R.I.T. (“Peace Piece”), and Usher Raymond and CeeLo Green (“Big Kids”).
According to B.O.B, this album is a blend of his best work and a reflection on his career thus far. “It’s about balance these days,” he said. “If you look at my career, there’s been a story arc. On The Adventures of Bobby Ray, Bobby goes on an adventure. He smokes some Strange Clouds afterwards. Then, he goes to the nightclub and does urban music in Underground Luxury. He takes some psychedelic mushrooms, has an awakening, and drops conscious projects like Psycadelik Thoughtz.
