This potential single from the newest ATLien to reach intergalactic notoriety, B.o.B., is more Organized Konfusion than Nitti. A breath of fresh air amidst a stale snap-‘n-roll musical climate, B.o.B. celebrates life with a fervor sorely missed in hip hop.I’ll Be In The Sky is a track that may go over the heads of trap-rappers still stuck in a maze, but the man also known as “The Future” is looking to go lightspeed past ATL certified legends Outkast and Goodie Mob. Jim Jonsin’s favorite rapper not named Lil’ Wayne waxes poetic over piano jabs, handclaps and tambourines. If “everyone in the world gon’ die one day,” then we’ll all have smiley faces partyin’ with Biggie and ‘Pac “in the sky,” having a good time.
