B.o.B – "Not Lost" ft. T.I.

Today is a rough day for me. Between running multiple regressions all day for a project and spending hours staring at this M.I.A. wiggle picture, trying to understand what’s happening, my brain is wandering. Now this collabo has me wondering why B.o.B’s name doesn’t have a “.” at the end of it and T.I.’s does. I swear, I fall somewhere on the autism spectrum.

This is a collaboration between two Atlanta representatives that didn’t make it to B.o.B’s The Adventures of Bobby Ray, out April 27th, because of sample clearance issues. Credit to Shake for posting. It’s a shame that this couldn’t get cleared, because it’s a dope song. Plus, I don’t even recognize the sample, do you?

Edit: So this sample is from Coldplay’s “Lost”. I guess I should have known that. For someone that listens to so much music, it’s surprising how little I know about some of the most popular music. I couldn’t name 3 Coldplay songs if you paid me. “Clocks”… that’s all I got. It’s not that I don’t like them…I just never got into it. Weird.

    @confusion no worries, Im not a coldplay fan either but Ive heard in B.o.B. interviews that he is a big fan. But the lost sample is old to me. Joe Budden did it, Jay-Z had a mash up live with it. I don’t want to come off always so anti-bobby ray but Im not even the least bit excited for the album anymore
