B.o.B. fans can start getting hyped. At this past week's South by Southwest music festival, the hip hop star revealed that the follow-up to his debut album The Adventures of Bobby Ray will feature sounds his audience might not expect.

"I think that people will definitely be surprised at the music they hear on the second album," he said. "I don't think they would expect that coming from me."

Although he's stayed tight-lipped on details regarding the album, B.o.B said that they're about a quarter into the recording process and fans can expect a taste of what's to come very soon.

"There's probably going to be some surprises. There's no telling what the next three quarters will be like," he added. "We should be seeing something very soon. Even if not an album, you'll definitely see new music this year."

The Adventures of Bobby Ray topped Billboard charts and smashed notions of what hip-hop should sound like leaving us to wonder how he'll manage to outdo himself the second time around. But with that amount of pressure mounting behind him, the artist is still more than willing to give it a shot saying, "You should never get comfortable. I feel like, for me, I embrace everything."
