When I got the call that I’d be playing a TV show with B.o.B I had no idea it would be a TV sitcom and I’d be part of a historical event. We were slated to play The Soul Man, Cedric the Entertainer’s new TV sitcom featuring the likes of Martin Lawrence, Brandy, and Betty White. The season premier aired Live “in front of God and everybody,” simultaneously on BET and TV Land. I’ve done quite a few TV shows, but this one left a lasting impression.

Always dope working with B.o.B.

He is fast becoming my favorite artist to work with.

Hope you got a chance to check us out, if not check out www.tvland.com/shows/the-soulman and get ready to laugh!

I'm always a little mischievous so of course here I am being just that on set as we're rehearsing for the show.
