B.o.B is currently performing dates on the Shooting Stars tour in support of his debut album 'B.o.B. Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray,' but the ATL rapper is already gearing up to release a new project.

During a backstage interview at Houston's House of Blues, Bobby Ray revealed to AllHipHop that he is already at work on his sophomore album, but in the meantime, he plans to drop a new mixtape before the end of the year. "I'm working on the next album and I'm working on a mixtape simultaneously," B.o.B. said. "The mixtape is actually done. I can tell you this...I produced songs on the mixtape, I can tell you that I've got a few of my friends on the mixtape and I can tell you that I'm on the mixtape. And it's coming out this year ... so I'm looking forward to that."

B.o.B.'s most recent mixtape 'May 25' featured guest appearances from J. Cole, Playboy Tre, Asher Roth, Charles Hamilton and Bruno Mars, and was released in preparation for his first studio LP, which arrived in April. 'B.o.B. Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray' landed at No. 1 on the Billboard albums chart during its debut week, selling over 84,000 copies.
