“People hit me on Facebook, Twitter, on MySpace,” he said with a smile in his home. “I don’t know how it got to that. How it got twisted to ‘I quit.’ I didn’t quit. Things got misunderstood.”
B.o.B’s new sound has involved a lot of instrumentation and a rock-and-roll edge.

“Now I go by the name ‘Bobby Ray.’ Make sure you put ‘Bobby Ray,’ ” the MC revealed. “I’m really going into a new direction — more free and not trying to live up to any particular genre. I don’t feel like I’ve been doing that. I don’t feel like I’ve been trying to fit in, but I feel even more free-spirited. I have more willingness musically. That’s all I’m about. I’m about guitars, chords and keyboards.”

B.o.B is one of the main attractions this week at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas. He’ll be performing with his band the Eastsiders.
