Rappers Wiz Khalifa and B.o.B (aka Bobby Ray) recently covered the February / March issue of VIBE Magazine, alongside singer Bruno Mars, featuring the heading "The New Pop Music." Once the cover spread around the internet, many conversations were had concerning whether or not everyone considered Wiz Khalifa and B.o.B "Pop Music" artists… now the rapper himself has come forward to give his opinion.
You may not get why we are calling them “The New Pop Music” but the
truth is each of them has taken their own sound and infiltrated the
masses thereby making them figures in popular culture and pop music.
Don’t front, you know you can turn to any Top 40 music station and hear
their music. (VIBE)
Previously, B.o.B made his "Airplanes" single the real thing, with a surprise performance on a recent flight. Bobby Ray was on a flight to Los Angeles when he surprised the passengers with a performance of his hit track from his "Adventures Of Bobby Ray" album. Check out the video in which B.o.B used the planes intercom as a microphone. (SEE BELOW)
