In Part 1 of our interview, B.o.B. sits down with Tineya and discusses his name change, how he fits in with Grand Hustle and being compared to Andre 3000. B.o.B. goes on to talk about the first song he ever remembered hearing and who were his influences musically growing up. He expands on the effects of T.I.’s incarceration on his own career, how he switches it up depending on what tour he’s in and how he made someone cry at a show. Performances are intercut between questions from his performance at the Highline Ballroom in NYC.
