On Monday, November 28 B.o.B. dropped a new mixtape called “E.P.I.C.,” which features 15 songs and stands for “Every Play Is Crucial.” The rising Atlanta emcee also confirmed a future collaborative album with T.I., titled “The Man and The Martian.” “Epic” features artists such as T.I., Mos Def, Eminem, Playboy Tre, Meek Mill, and was produced by Jim Jonsin, Dr. Luke, and Ryan Tedder.
Bobby Ray said in a recent interview “The joint album, it actually started as a joke, Tip would always refer to me as the Martian, and in one of his lyrics, he said, ‘It’s the man and the Martian,’ and we said, ‘Man that could be an album title.'” He elaborated further “We kinda just played around with it…But it seems to be taking form in a very organic way.”
The mixtape includes the main single “Strange Clouds” with Weezy from B.o.B.’s second studio album of the same name and is a prelude to the LP due early next year. He explained it in an interview “It’s all about the fusion between the outer limits and the inner limits, from the sky to the ground…It’s everything in between, above and below — so Strange Clouds, for me, it’s my ‘Twilight Zone.'”
