At just 21 years old, B.o.B. might be the next huge hip-hop artist. His single, "Nothing on You," is all over the radio and the release date for his album has actually been moved to earlier than originally scheduled -- a rare occurrence in the industry.

It's no surprise that B.o.B. -- also known as Bobby Ray Simmons -- has made it to this point. From a very early age he displayed a natural talent for music. In grade school he learned to play multiple instruments, and in high school he formed a production team called Klinic. As a teenager, he even sold his own song to a hip-hop artist.

After high school, B.o.B. decided to go solo, and had the opportunity to perform at a well-known hip-hop club. There, producer TJ Chapman saw his talent and agreed to manage him. It took only a month for him to sign a record deal with Atlantic and Rebel Rock. In 2007, B.o.B. released his first single, "Haterz Everywhere," which gained attention from major music critics -- and put him on the "Artist to Watch" lists.

Now B.o.B. is about to release his debut album, "B.o.B. Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray." He teamed up with producer Bruno Mars on his hit song, "Nothing on You."
