After enjoying success in 2010, with his debut album The Adventures Of Bobby Ray, Grand Hustle artist B.o.B has been unable to repeat his success.
Five years later, the Atlanta rapper takes to Twitter to air out frustrations with with his label, claiming they’ve has “suppressed” him.
“There’s a ban on BoB,” he wrote in a series of tweets. “They boycott me, they are afraid I’ll get too much exposure. When ppl say I’m ‘under-rated’ or ‘slept-on’ … it’s not entirely the case… ‘suppressed’ is a better word. All my social media outlets are heavily monitored and my reach is crippled.”

While he did not name Atlantic Records by name, the label has released all of his albums, including his latest studio set, Psycadelik Thoughtz, which dropped in August and failed to impact the charts, debuting at #97 on the Billboard 200.
While blasting Alantic, B.o.B offers thanks to T.I., who signed him to Grand Hustle at the beginning of his career.
“Thank God @Tip got my back and he still in my corner, #HustleGang #NoGenre,” he writes. “To every fan who has ever gave me a RT, a follow, or a like… thank you for spreading the word. You’ve done more promo than the label.”
