B.o.B. & Andre 3000 - "Play The Guitar"

Today B.o.B. released the second single from his upcoming album, Strange Clouds. "Play The Guitar" features   Andre 3000, to whom Bobby Ray is often compared too. The often underrated rapper and 3 Stacks both spit fire verses over the Salaam Remi produced track, which features samples from Bob Marley and T.I. Needless to say this is a dope track, but what else should you expect from B.o.B. and the greatest rapper of all time? Hit the jump below for the song.

And If You Don't Know, Now You Know...Marques Toliver

If you don't know about Marques Toliver, you are missing out a true talent. I recently stumbled upon the violinist/singer/songwriter while viewing some The Mahogany Sessions videos on Youtube. 
Marques created buzz among music bloggers when he released the Butterflies Are Not Free EP this past April. His R&B soulful sound combined with classical strings is unique and intriguing.

A couple of days ago, he released a new mixtape entitled Studying For My PhD. This project is more eclectic, and it features new music from Marques combined with samples. Hit the jump below to stream/download his latest mixtape and to hear live versions of some songs from his first EP.
