B.o.B and Lil Wayne are out of this world on their latest collaboration “E.T.,” which appears on Bobby Ray’s new album Ether.
Over psychedelic synths, the ATLien kicks things off with some extraterrestrial bars. “Basically, I’m an alien to y’all,” he raps. “I guess I’m speaking in different languages to y’all / I guess all you know is my alias, is all / I stepped into the Hall of Fame and put my frame on the wall.”
Then, Weezy, who has often referred to himself as a Martian, blasts off into space with his verse. “Oh my god, it’s the Martian,” he brags. “Stuntin’ in them Son of Mars Jordans / It must be the shoes, the stars in the skies won’t start ’em / Far from the norm, bitch I’m Norman Bates awkward / But nothing’s far fetched when an underdog’s barkin’.”
Ether is B.o.B’s fourth album and first independent release since leaving Atlantic. The star-studded 12-track effort features T.I. and Ty Dolla $ign (“4 Lit”), Young Thug (“Xantastic”), Big K.R.I.T. (“Peace Piece”), and Usher and CeeLo Green (“Big Kids”).
The album arrives shortly before B.o.B’s “Elements Tour,” which is set to kick off June 8 in Jacksonville.
