Roundup Russy’s Artist Spotlight: B.o.B.

B.o.B hails from the city of Atlanta, Georgia or more specifically Decatur where according to the crooner, Lloyd “it’s greater.” But, for B.o.B, it wasn’t all good as he knew early in life he was special and sought refuge from relentless schoolyard taunts in the only world he felt comfortable, hip-hop. “In 3rd grade I got a copy of DMX’s “It’s Dark & Hell Is Hot” and I began to break down his songs. I discovered how his bars worked and figured out how to put verses together.”

You may know him from this Atlanta banger that made it mainstream:

N.E.R.D – “Seeing Sounds” – Album Review

Music Review: N.E.R.D – “Seeing Sounds”

N.E.R.D (Nobody Ever Really Dies) returns with their 3rd studio album “Seeing Sounds” which is an appropriate title. Although classified as alternative, N.E.R.D really does an amazing job blending a bunch of genres from rock, hip-hop, R&B , and electronic (among others) to create a listening experience that will undoubtedly have all who are bold enough to go on this journey with them, SEEING SOUNDS. The album cover is very clever as well showing the three man band of Pharrell, Chad, and Shay standing with their backs to the audience looking up at a King-Kong sized gorilla who is roaring; truly a definition of seeing sounds if there ever was one.
