(AllHipHop News) With all the high-profile Hip Hop releases in 2013 from artists like Kanye West, Jay Z, Drake, J. Cole, Killer Mike, Pusha T, Tyler, The Creator and many more, the “Album of the Year” debate in a few months will surely be interesting. One rapper that is ready to throw his name in the hat for the title is Hustle Gang’s B.o.B.

Speaking with MTV, Bobby Ray says that his forthcoming Underground Luxury LP will be the year’s best.
“I will have the best musical album out this year, like hands down,” said B.o.B. “That’s no knock to anybody, any of the greats like Jay and Kanye, because I enjoyed their albums, but musically, what I put into this album it’s gonna be the best album this year.”
The Atlanta native also talks about how he feels the current state of Hip Hop is reminiscent of the 1990′s adding that there is a “superstar energy” in the culture once again.
Underground Luxury will be the Atlanta performer’s third studio album following 2010′s The Adventures of Bobby Ray and 2012′s Strange Clouds. B.o.B recently told Rolling Stone that the project is almost complete and is in the process of narrowing down the final tracks after recording almost two albums worth of material.
