Rapper B.o.B. has revealed that he is currently living the next chapter in his life and that he sees the future of the music industry as he continues to do so.
In an interview with the New York Times, the former Tupac Shakur hitmaker, who has been incarcerated since 1999, said that he was now a “real” musician and would not be stopping anytime soon.
Boz was recently released from a federal prison in California after serving a 25-year sentence for drug charges, which he maintains were trumped up.
He was initially arrested on a federal charge of selling more than 2,000 pounds of cocaine in 2009.
He told the New Yorker that his last album was “a mess” but he had been working on it for three years and was working on new music and recording with a producer.
“I feel like I’m going to start singing again,” he said.
“I feel that my voice has been on the wrong track, and I’m really excited about it.”
The rapper and producer, whose real name is Bryson Tiller, was originally booked to perform at the 2016 Grammys.
His upcoming performance is set to be the last time the pop star will perform in concert as he will not be returning for the event in 2018.
Bosnia and Herzegovina singer and producer Bodega Baba has also announced his retirement from the music business.
Baba announced his decision to step away from the stage in an Instagram post that also included a video of him performing with the likes of The Weeknd and Lorde.
“The road to music is long, and you have to make choices every day to live your dream,” he wrote.
“My goal is to be a good father, a good husband, and a good man.
This is my life, and it is my choice.
If you don’t like what I am doing right now, I want to take my life back.”
Baba has also shared his feelings for his wife, singer and model Laganja Estranja, who he married in 2016.
He has previously shared his thoughts on his wife’s decision to have a child out of wedlock and his disappointment with his own lifestyle choices.
“You don’t get to choose your life,” he told Esquire magazine.
“You have to live it, you have the right to choose.”
