B.o.B Drops ‘No Genre 2′ Mixtape, ‘Follow Me’ Video
Four years after releasing his first 'No Genre' mixtape, B.o.B returns with 'No Genre 2,' a 14-track effort that includes features from Ty Dolla $ign, Mike Fresh, Sevyn Streeter and, of course, his Grand Hustle boss T.I., just to name a few.
The rapper also recruited a bunch of different producers, such as Tommy Brown, She'kspere, Sonny Digitial and N4. Bobby Ray produced four tracks as well. Just yesterday (July 10) he released the video for the song 'Follow Me,' an electric guitar-driven track, in which the multi-talented artist sings introspective lyrics while he's hitchhiking through the desert.
Other song titles on 'No Genre 2' include 'Lean On Me,' 'Forget,' 'The Nation,' 'Chosen,' 'Drunk AF' and 'Swing My Way,' which B.o.B just released a few days ago.
In an interview with Atlanta radio station Hot 107.9, the 'Nothing On You,' lyricist says creating one particular sound or staying true to one particular genre isn't for him. For this tape, he wanted to work with people he had true chemistry with.
"I've always had like genre-bending music, if you will," B.o.B explained. "And one day somebody told me, they just said 'Bob, you should just start a label called No Genre.' And it was right around the time I planned on doing a sequel to this mixtape, so it just all made sense, man. So I really reached out to everybody who I really have a genuine chemistry with."
