Discussing his past music phases, B.o.B explained the complexity of his career journey that often had him yearning for greener grass. "I used to want to just play rock music, and before that, I wanted to prove that I was more than an MC. And then when I exploded and had huge commercial pop success, I wanted to prove I was an MC again," he said.
But the veteran artist emphasized the importance of staying true to oneself regardless of public opinions.
"I think the beauty is just the journey of it. Even people who feel, you know, repulsed, or they strongly dislike it, that's still an emotion. And it's still invoking something out of people."
