B.o.B has been out of the limelight for a bit to focus on the creation of his latest album Ether, which he’s decided to drop this week. While it’s only been out for hours, fans are already loving this new side of him. The album itself is full of some pretty dope features from artists such as Young Thug, T.I. and Ty Dolla $ign, who all add to the album’s futuristic vibe.
The track that fans seem to be feeling the most is the second one, titled “E.T.,” which features “the Martian” himself Lil Wayne. The pairing of the two artists work out pretty well, with the duo trading verses over a creative space-age beat. To many, the collaboration (along with many others in the past few months) adds to Wayne’s triumphant return to the hip-hop game.
Wayne has also notably strayed away from the AutoTune, instead playing into his old-school style of witty wordplay and unmatched flow. It’s safe to say that this is what the game’s been missing for a while.
