Gyant over at SOHH posted a not so blind item a while ago, speculating that one of the hottest new artists to come out of the “A” in a while ~ B.o.B. aka Bobby Ray ~ is quitting rap:
Which new Atlanta MC, that’s been getting a STRONG internet buzz, is rumored to have quit the music industry?
This rapper, who has been compared to a hip-hop legend, has been on the cover of one of hip-hop’s most popular magazines. And just last week, had met up with a certain Detroit rapper to cut some records.
Turns out the speculation is true…well almost. B. Rich later confirmed that B.o.B. is going through some personal issues and has decided to step away from the microphone for a while. I don’t know how long he’ll be away, but my hope is that he will return soon because his musical style and talents are much needed in today’s music game.
B.o.B….if you’re listening…my prayers are with you. Stay strong and know that whatever the issue is, it’s only temporary. Learn from it and move forward. Take as long as you need to get through it but COME BACK! Your talents speak to so many people…Please don’t go!
