If people keep comparing B.o.B to Andre 3k, we might have a problem on our hands. T.I.P. and B.o.B may not be as seamless as Outkast is, but they have an undeniable chemistry. The way they work together is even similar. At the same time, it sounds like they’re working against eachother and competing. It adds an interesting twist to their music. They even joke about it themselves in my favorite song by them, “I’m That Nigga”.
They only have five songs together so far, but B.o.B is just starting to carve out his niche and make a name for himself. He had a hell of a year last year and if T.I. can stay out of trouble, he and his protege’ can make some more amazing hits for us.
Personally, I enjoy the hype they put into their music rather than the laid back New Yorkers like Nas and AZ. This is coming from someone that considers Nas one of the greatest of all time.
Nobody would consider them heirs to the Outkast thrones right now, but if they keep working together, they’ll be a problem.
