As a result of being an adventurous eater - I’m not afraid to try things like alligator tongue or snake meat - I’ve learned that some things just don’t mix (I’m looking at you mayo and chocolate). With that said, I’m just as much of a metalhead as I am a hip-hop fan, but I cringe at the thought of hearing some hip-hop artists attempt to fuse the two genres (sorry Weezy). But if the rap/rock vibe of B.o.B’s latest track Don’t Let Me Fall isn’t one of the greatest mixtures of two elements since the Reese’s peanut butter cup, I don’t what is. With an airy beat saturated with piano sequences and hard guitar riffs produced by Bobby Ray himself, the Atlanta rapper lights up the record with his usual high-energy delivery combined with a softer, more vulnerable twist. If B.o.B. isn’t on your radar by now…wait…he should already be, so I’m not even going to finish that sentence. Don’t Let Me Fall will be featured on B.o.B.’s debut album The Adventures of Bobby Ray, which drops April 27.
