  • B.o.B. enlisted the actor Morgan Freeman to use his authoritative voice for some words of wisdom on Strange Clouds' opening track. "You know the title of the song and the song itself has a very epic vibe to it," the rapper told Hiphop-N-More. "Like a sinister, medieval meets modern day kinda vibe, so I felt like he will be perfect for narrating the track. It's the intro and he's narrating it."
