B.o.B gives a bit more of himself on his upcoming album, Underground Luxury. On Bobby Ray's third studio LP, the Grand Hustle spitter/singer/strummer brings the turn-up tracks (the Chris Brown-featured "Throwback," "Wide Open") but elsewhere offers up some substance speaking on addiction and his own
