B.o.B. Heading To White House For High Profile Performance

This September 30th, Rebel Rock Entertainment/Grand Hustle/Atlantic recording artist B.o.B, will be the featured musical guest at the upcoming “National Gen44 Summit Kick Off Concert with President Barack Obama," at Washington, DC’s historic DAR Constitution Hall.

The news came in the midst of a jam-packed schedule of performances for B.o.B, which began Saturday, September 11th with a live set at the 2010 BMI Urban Music Awards at Hollywood’s famed Pantages Theatre.

The next night the rapper hit the stage alongside his chart-topping collaborators Bruno Mars and Paramore’s Hayley Williams, at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards extravaganza.

“I just want to show people that there are endless possibilities of what you can do,” B.o.B said in a statement about his recent successes.  “You don’t just have to be a rapper, you don’t just have to be a trapper; you can be anything you want to be and whatever you do, just love it and it will show.”

In a addition to his awards show performances, B.o.B crossed the country for a pair of acclaimed opening sets at the Jay-Z and Eminem “Home & Home” blockbuster double-bill at New York’s Yankee Stadium on September 13th and 14th.

B.o.B also served as special guest at Eminem and Jay-Z’s concert held earlier this month at Detroit’s Comerica Park.

Currently, the Atlanta native's most recent single “Magic” from the album B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray, features Rivers Cuomo of Weezer and the song is currently reaching most multi-format radio outlets nationwide and its companion video clip has just entered rotation at MTV, MTV2, mtvU, and MTV Hits.

“Magic” has also exploded onto the VH1 Top 20 Video Countdown, where it is now poised to enter the tally’s top 10.
