Following the success of his debut effort, "B.o.B. Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray" (2010), B.o.B. stamps his return with the second single off sophomore LP, "Strange Clouds" (March 2012).
"Play the Guitar" finds the rapper dropping playful rhymes over Salaam Remi produced soundscapes. "Sideline haters need to chill where the cooler is," B.o.B raps. However, it doesn't feel like the hero has arrived until André 3000 comes in mid-way to drop knowledge.
"I encourage any child to pick up some instrument, because if you're mad at your dad or your mum you can grab it and strum/ Eat your cabbage and corn by the time you're done, you'll probably realize they meant you no harm."
Bobby Ray's first single, "Strange Clouds" (feat. Lil' Wayne), is climbing the charts. "Strange Clouds," which peaked at No. 3 on the Hot 100 chart, recently jumped from 48-41 and is currently No. 18 on Rap Songs.
