But The Adventures of Bobby Ray is such a record, a collection that arrived sooner than expected in the US to take advantage of the success of number one single Nothin' on You. The result: a number one album, too. So far, so what: such an achievement Over There is the equal of Diana Vickers' recent performances Over Here. Music Reviews: B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray by B.o.B. Released in 2010 via Grand Hustle, Rebel Rock, Atlantic.

Who is Bobby Ray? The identity of this young rapper from Atlanta, born Bobby Ray Simmons but better known as B.o.B., seems difficult to pin down. This mainly because compared to other rappers with stronger reputations like dirty club pimpin’ 50 Cent, gangsta life T.I. and vitriol-spitting Eminem, B.o.B. has a less prominent personality. Nevertheless, his debut album B.o.B. Presents – The Adventures of Bobby Ray, released a year ago, reached #1 on the Billboard 200 in its first week.

The details of his biography are really no secret – in fact, he describes them to us in several of the songs on his album, of how he used to skip classes and spend all his time writing raps in his notebooks. His website tells us he dropped out of school in sixth grade; on Don’t Let Me Fall, he ironically remarks, “Now I’m ruler of the upper class and I don’t even write”. This decision was probably what enabled him to gain such success at only 22.

But more than that, in the tracks we hear the things he’s picked up on his adventures. His album seems to be an aural journal of his journey as a musicographer, sampling sounds from different times and places. Bobby Ray has a good ear, a quality that truly sets him apart as an artist and not just a rapper. He throws us that familiar 1990s American pop sound on the chorus of “Magic” with Rivers Cuomo, then two tracks later croons like a club singer in reggae ballad titled “Lovelier Than You”. But of course, he hasn’t strayed far from his roots – he spits out rhymes with T.I. and homeboy Playboy Tre on “Bet I”, and even included a track “Satellite” from his at the time latest mixtape B.o.B. vs. Bobby Ray.

Bobby Ray’s musical style eludes classification on this album perhaps because it was the first time he got a chance to break out of the purely hip hop scene. His big break with Atlantic Records gave him that leg-up into the world of mainstream pop, and before his underground followers knew it, his first single was radio favourite “Nothing On You” with pop icon Bruno Mars, and his second was the rock rap “Airplanes” featuring Hayley Williams of Paramore.

We do know, though, of his preoccupation with social issues. “Kids” featuring Janelle Monáe addresses the condition of ‘wayward’ kids like himself growing up, and his other introspective piece “Ghost in the Machine” reflects on the position of a young person growing up in a rapidly globalizing world.

Perhaps one description we can put to him is that his tone is decidedly anti-establishment. He has a keen interest in affecting change in his society (the clearest proof of this found in this song). We get only a taste of this, however, on his album. In “Airplanes” he lashes out at the music industry, begging “So can I get a wish/To end the politics/And get back to the music that started this shit”. Bobby Ray is known for speaking up, and speaking out, and his being tied to a label doesn’t change that about him.
