B.o.B: â€śMy buddy was into Coldplay, and he would try and play it for me, but I was just a kid. That was before I could really appreciate the musical value of what it was. It wasnâ€™t about the stuff you think about as a kid, when youâ€™re worried about cartoons and cars. So the song concepts didnâ€™t pull me in that much.
This album was a different direction from the one that they had started in. I eventually became a fan of this project and a fan of theirs, and it made me go back and listen to their other albums.â€ť
