  • Nicki Minaj jumps on this track in her usual animated style. The Queens MC goes straight for the jugular as she bounces rhymes with Bobby Ray: "What's your name? B.o.B? So they callin' you Bob? Stop playin' n---a, you know that I'm known for the bob. Couple of hot songs got you thinkin' you a heart throb," she spits. "I feel like Nicki definitely recognizes my musical talent or else she wouldn't have referred to me as a heartthrob," B.o.B commented to MTV News, laughing. "She definitely went ham. When I heard it, I was grinning from ear to ear. I was glad she brought it."
