This Day In Hip Hop and Rap History

April 13th – B.o.B releases the smash hit single “Airplanes” from his chart topping, gold selling album “B.o.B. Presents: The Adventures Of Bobby Ray” on Grand Hustle Records, on this day in 2010.

The hit song features the vocals of Hayley Williams of the alternative rock band Paramore on the chorus.

“Airplanes” was produced by Alex da Kid and DJ Frank E. and co-written by Kinetics & One Love.

“Airplanes”, whose original hip-hop/folk fusion feel made it sound unlike anything previously ever released by a hip-hop artist, went to the top of the charts in several countries around the world.

The song’s video has had almost 200 million views on YouTube to date.

The song’s sequel titled “Airplanes Part II” also featured a guest appearance by Eminem.
