He has released multiple singles such as “Nothin’ On You” featuring Bruno Mars which has gone double platinum, “Airplanes” featuring Haley Williams of Paramore and Eminem, and “Magic” featuring Rivers Cuomo. He has also released two other songs “Haterz Everywhere” with fellow rapper Rich Boy back in 2008, and “I’ll Be in the Sky.” Many have compared B.O.B. to Andre 3000 due to his creative abilities, and the fact that he can play seven instruments.
