Rapper B.o.B had a great 2012 with the release of his gold-selling second album 'Strange Clouds.' So how is he going to top 2013? Well, he's going to play his guitar.

During a recent interview with Sway in the Morning radio show on Shade45, the Hustle Grand artist says he is working on a rock EP that will drop before his third album.

“Expect an album from B.o.B and a rock EP as well,” he told Sway. “My rock EP is like… I take pride in my work and I’m not going to do something just to say that I can do it if I ain’t really passionate about doing it."

"I’m very passionate about my music. Sometimes I take it too seriously," he continued. "But this rock EP, I’ve been working on it for a long time actually. Because that type of music, you gotta let it marinate for a minute. You can’t just deep-fry that.”

We agreed with Bobby Ray. No one wants to hear some greasy, overcooked music. We want some steaming fresh guitar-charging rock music!

Elsewhere in the interview, B.o.B was asked which rock artists he would like to work with in the future. "Definitely, Dave Grohl from the Foo Fighters. Of course Linkin Park," he said. “Actually, I already worked with Travis Barker on a couple of things. Gotta let the drummer get some. Possibly Paramore, Hayley Williams. We collaborated before, but I want to collaborate on the rock side.”

No word on when B.o.B will drop his rock-inspired EP, but if it's on the same level as 'Airplanes,' he's going to fly high atop the Billboard charts.
