B.o.B aka Bobby Ray was born in North Carolina on November 15, 1988 and grew up on the east side of Atlanta. He first considered making music only as a hobby which he did in his spare time. Despite taking it not so seriously, he had formed a production duo called The Klinic when he was just a high schooler. At the age of 15, he had successfully sold one of his beats to a recording artist Citty.
When his partner left for college, he continued pursuing his music career as a solo artist. Still underage, he sneaked into into Club Crucial, which was owned by T.I., in 2006. Successfully impressing the crowd with his self-produced tune, he was approached by TJ Chapman who happened to stand among the crowd when he performed. A month later, he was signed to Atlantic, becoming T.I.'s labelmate and releasing a mixtape "Cloud 9".
