B.O.B is one of the year's biggest success stories. The 21 year-old Atlanta-native and Grand Hustle signee has managed to score 3 Top 10 Billboard Hits off his debut album The Adventures of Bobby Ray ('Nothin' On You' hit #1 on the Hot 100, while 'Airplanes' peaked at #2 and 'Magic' currently sits at #10). On top of that, he was chosen to open up for Jay-Z and Eminem's Home to Home stadium tour, and as if that wasn't big enough it was recently announced that B.O.B is going to be performing for President Obama at this year's Gen44 summit. This would be impressive for any debut artist, but in an era where rappers with enormous internet/industry 'buzz' fail on the regular, and others struggle to even get a solid release date, what he's managed to do is nothing short of incredible. No doubt about it, B.O.B is a star, but when you really think about it, the majoity of listeners don't know much about him at all. To quote the title of one of his early mixtapes, Who The F**k Is B.O.B?
