Bob talks Bobby Ray name Change and Collabs with Eminem

    Bobby Ray formally known as B.o.b.(thank god he changed to Bobby Ray I was getting tired of saying B dot O dot B everytime or saying ‘Bob’ it not working for me). Bobby recently released a mixtape called ‘B.o.B vs Bobby Ray‘ and has being receiving great feedback from critics and fans. His debut album was going to be called ‘The Adventures of B.o.B‘ but has now been renamed ‘The Adventures of Bobby Ray‘ and does not have a release date yet.

    Bob says the growth into Bobby Ray is all about his coming of age.

“The difference between B.o.B and Bobby Ray is … when I was signed under B.o.B, I was really young and didn’t understand the type of business I was getting into,” he explained. “[I didn’t understand] how free I could be with the music. I felt like I had to play this person, play this certain character — talk a certain way, dress a certain way, rap a certain way. Now that I look back on it, I don’t really feel that way. I don’t really believe it. I wouldn’t do that now. I wanted to break away from that and not box myself in. Bobby Ray isn’t a character — he’s really me. At the same time, it’s so different, it’s like a snake shedding its skin. Shed the old and onto something new. When I feel that’s had its run, I don’t think I’ll do another name-change, but you’re constantly evolving and that’s where the inspiration from that came from. … Moving forward, I’ll officially be Bobby Ray.”

    Bobby Ray recently met with Eminem in the studio, where the artists collaborated on a couple of tracks.

“We were in the studio … we actually made a couple of productions, orchestrations,” he said. “I’m real excited to see how people feel about it. For me it’s a dream come true.”
