B.o.B.'s sophomore album Strange Clouds may be unusual to some rap supporters considering he tapped people like country artist Taylor Swift to join the effort on the inspirational ode "Both of Us." However, her inclusion was all a part of his plan while creating the LP. "People are gonna have to hate that they admit they love the song," he tells The BoomBox.

The 23-year-old southern rhymer spent more than a year crafting Strange Clouds, which features guest appearances from Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne and Trey Songz, among others. The collaborations are heavy but the lyrical content doesn't get overshadowed in the process.

Finally in stores for mass consumption, B.o.B. reveals his top five moments as he recorded the LP. From traveling across several states in a tour bus to score one big-name feature to landing an esteemed actor's contribution, here are the poignant experiences that shaped the final product.
