B.o.B. and Janelle Monáe are Just Everyday Atliens

B.o.B. and Janelle Monáe are both from Atlanta And, just as importantly, they're both recent URB cover stars. Talk about artists defying region, trajectory, race and genre. So psyched that both did their first covers with URB.

The B.o.B video shows our boy killing the acoustic guitar for two freestyle bits bookending our interview with him. Check our Next 100 story on B.o.B here.

Janelle's video shows her getting ready for her URB cover story. Diddy's latest muse just released an album on Bad Boy which is an intoxicating cocktail of Andre 3000 and a future-soul Lauryn Hill. Check it out below.
