There’s a first time for everything, especially in the lives of our favorite celebs.

ATL rapper B.o.B might be a staple in the music industry now, but before he made it onto XXL‘s Freshman Class list back in 2009 and before he won multiple awards for his music, he was just a teen trying to make a name for himself.
