B.o.B. Reveals Lack Of Family Support On ‘This Is How I Made It’

On the road to becoming a best-selling rapper, there are bound to be a few bumps — not to mention a few detractors — but what if your own family doesn’t support you? Then you keep on pushing, just like B.o.B did. On the latest episode of MTV’s “This Is How I Made It,” Bobby Ray — who landed at #1 on the charts with his major-label debut, B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray, in 2010 — reveals that his father was not too thrilled about his career choice. Watch the full episode above.

“My dad will tell you that he wasn’t too fond of me when I first started rapping,” B.o.B. explains in the episode. “My dad was a preacher. When your dad is a preacher … the things you wanna say as an MC, they don’t really go hand in hand.”
