B.o.B – “Don’t Let Me Fall” Video

By | 5 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/09/b-o-b-feat-rivers-cuomo-magic-video"> The tone and theme behind "Don't Let Me Fall" - both the song and now the video - create a connection which ties B.o.B's musical journey to his fans. As a lead for his Adventures..., the four minute track plays like an open prayer where the artist asks listeners to embrace his experiences and creativity. Bobby has a preacher's voice that dates back to the call and response origins of our music, yelling out to each individual listener, eliciting a unique and emotional response from each person in earshot. It's never me listening to B.o.B; it's B.o.B's voice shining a light on everyone's journey, telling them to forge ahead even when the path ahead is dark and dangerous. "Don't Let Me Fall" isn't just his song, but ours as well and it speaks to each of us individually. There are few songs and artists that occupy this space, perhaps a couple of tracks by Pac and definitely <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QF3jFiipzk">Outkast's "In Due Time."</a> But that's space Bobby Ray finds himself in as an artist, the rare one who managed to scrap his way to the top against the odds and soaring above the crowd by skill and spirit.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/05/a-history-of-tss-coverage-of-bob"> Not that I actually like this song because I don't. By now you're used to <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/05/a-history-of-tss-coverage-of-bob">us praising B.o.B.</a> but I honestly felt "Magic" was a little too far across the imaginary line of acceptable experimentation in rap and borders on the brink of being Pop, creating a noticeably, out-of-place blemish on <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/b-o-b-presents-the-adventures-of-bobby-ray">The Adventures...</a> Still, I'm all for brothers gettin' money and stickin' it to the man so I have to applaud him for receiving Reebok checks as well as a few from adidas for the blatant product placement in this video.

“Satellite” – Review Of B.o.B Presents The Adventures Of Bobby Ray

By | 39 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/04/video-b-o-b-performs-dont-let-me-fall-night-before-album-release"> Labeling artists as geniuses or phenoms has become all too common and, for the most part, baseless these days. True, making hits isn't easy. But, once upon a time, being a professional musician was once considered a career as opposed to a hobby to open the door for other avenues. Already carving out his own lane before achieving national attention, Bobby Ray Simmons burst on the scene as <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/b-o-b">B.o.B</a>, an Atlanta-bred MC with a penchant for wildman-like raps with lyrical flair.
