B.o.B’s fourth studio album Ether marks a couple milestones for the 28-year old artist. Not only is it his first album release since 2013’s Underground Luxury, it’s also his first album since he parted ways with Atlantic Records and decided to go independent.
B.o.B officially dropped the project Thursday night, more than a month after he announced it. Big-name acts like Lil Wayne, Young Thug, CeeLo Green, T.I., and Ty Dolla Sign make cameos throughout the 12-track album.
“All the features is just really people who I fuck with,” B.o.B said. “I don’t collaborate with everybody, man, and I’m at a point where […] I just want to [work] with people who I gel with and vibe with. Even if I collaborate with the same artist six times, I’m still going to keep doing it.”
Ether is now available to stream on Apple Music and can be purchased today on iTunes.
