B.o.B On Performing for Obama (Video)

blame it on Shake October 1, 2010

Last night, B.o.B helped Barack Obama and the Democratic National Committee kick off their inaugural Gen44 Summit (a three-day event set to prep the newest generation of rising leaders within the party). MTV caught up with Bobby Ray for his reaction on his invite.

The DNC approached us about doing this about a month ago, and at the time, I didn’t really want to believe it. I was like, ‘Really?’

It really shows me the times that we are in. Knowing that just where I came from, being able to make music, and really voice my opinion, and be really frank and direct with my approach to music, and for the youth to receive that so well, it really shows that we’re in an era of great thinkers and people who can interrupt the reality that they are in. And [to] really understand that, and be proactive, and spur creativity and do something different.

He also spoke with XXL about meeting Obama. Hit the jump.

It went real well actually man, lotta energy in there. On a scale of one to then it would probably have to rank at 44. He got me in his iPod. I was like you got a real good iPod then. I made a presidential iPod.  He congratulated me on all the success and said he was proud of everything that I was doing. We snapped a few pictures. It was a really good, really good day yesterday.

    I thought B.o.B. failed and that he wasn’t a success. Yet again, this proves that record sales don’t amount for shit. When you have Obama, Jay-Z, Eminem, and so many others putting you on, then you fucking made it even if you sold 10 CDs.

  • JD

  • @ Red get your shit right dude BoB has sold over 600k recoeds over 10 million singles!!!
