The wait is finally over! Rapper B.o.B has penciled in March 13 as the release date for his sophomore album 'Strange Clouds.' The Grand Hustle artist officially made the announcement on his Twitter page to his 362,000 followers. On New Year's Day, he also tweeted, "It's 2012 now, 3 stripes, 6 strings."

We don't know what that means but we think it has to do with his penchant for strumming the guitar lately. Bobby Ray's latest single, 'Play the Guitar,' featuring reclusive rapper Andre 3000, is a head-nodding, guitar-plucking jam that's garnering spins on radio.

B.o.B was quite busy in 2011. Besides promoting his upcoming LP, he jumped on the remix of Katy Perry's current single, 'The One That Got Away.' He also dropped a few videos including 'Epic' and 'Strange Clouds.'

Hopefully, B.o.B can match the success of his debut LP 'The Adventures of Bobby Ray.' The collection boasts several multi-platinum singles including 'Airplanes' (featuring Hayley Williams), 'Magic (featuring Rivers Cuomo of Weezer) and ubiquitous hit song, 'Nothing on You' (featuring Bruno Mars).

No word on the track listing, as of yet, but that should be available in a couple of weeks.
