B.o.B returned with a brand new album this week, titled ETHER, his fourth album overall and first since leaving Atlantic Records.
The new project boasts 12 new tracks, with a star-studded guest list that includes Lil Wayne (“E.T.”), Big K.R.I.T. (“Peace Piece”), and Usher and CeeLo Green (“Big Kids”).
It also includes the Young Thug-assisted “Xantastic” and “4 Lit” featuring Ty Dolla $ign and T.I.
“It’s about balance these days,” B.o.B said of EHTER. “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… Now, I want to take everything and have fun in this culmination called ETHER.”
“I’ve always believed knowledge plus experience equals wisdom. The experience is kicking in.”
