B.o.B a/k/a Bobby Ray :: Should Have Been the First Album

[Folks at 2DopeBoyz got some cajones to put this one out. As we all know, this very talented cat name Bobby Ray a/k/a B.o.B is signed on a major label, Atlantic, but as of this writing, no albums have been released yet. Fueled by the the despise of Atlantic Records and talented cats, sich as B.o.B, not being played on the radio, 2DopeBoyz decided to make an unofficial/"this-should-have-been-a" debut for Bobby Ray. Whether Atlantic'll release an upcoming B.o.B album or not, talented should never be wasted and it's all in here. Check it out!]
