Rebeckah Hester, director of Campus Life, said students select the artists for the concert.
“Campus Life and the Student Activity Advisory Team are excited to bring B.o.B to IU East in April,” Hester said.
B.o.B continues to push the envelope musically by expanding the depths of his talent, and though he’s always been a skilled musician, playing the guitar for years, B.o.B has started producing music more frequently for both himself and his artists under his independent label No Genre.
The last half-decade has seen B.o.B devoted to one mission, to erase genre boundaries while simultaneously expanding the breath and scope of a distinctive creative vision and he doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
B.o.B. is from Atlanta, Georgia. He released his first mixtape, Cloud Nine, in 2006. The rapper/songwriter has received six Grammy nominations. He has recorded his second album, Strange Clouds, featuring songs “Bombs Away,” “Where Are You (B.o.B vs. Bobby Ray),” “Stan” and “Hard To Breathe.” His duet with Lil’ Wayne was No. 1 on iTunes. He has also recorded with Taylor Swift on “Both of Us.”
He’s known for his songs including “Airplanes” featuring Haley Williams of Paramore, and “Nothing on You” featuring Bruno Mars.
In addition to the Grammy’s, B.o.B has been recognized by The American Music Awards, BET Awards, MTV Awards and NAACP Image Awards.
