Fans of ATL modern day Renaissance man B.o.B. have been waiting for the release of his debut album about as long as hip-hop nation’s been waiting for Detox (I exaggerate, but you get the point), and to keep the people from rioting Bobby Ray is making sure to feed the masses with a steady stream of new tracks, including today’s mixtape leak The Biz. On The Biz not only does B.o.B. spit over Mobb Deep’s classic track Shook Ones Part II (shouts to Havoc for the darkly dope beat), but he does it with the blend of street-edged hardness and creativity we’ve come to expect from the man, breaking down the music industry he’s struggled so hard to find a place in with impressive lyrical skill. I mean, come on, who else could make an extended Black Rob Whoa! reference sound fresh? The Biz is off B.o.B.’s upcoming May 25th Mixtape, which is also the date his The Adventures of Bobby Ray album is finally due to drop (he swears).
