Weeks before the release of his third solo album, B.o.B took a moment to enjoy the spoils of being a hip-hop star. Surrounded by family, friends and label reps, B.o.B hosted a private dinner at Atlanta’s STK restaurant that featured porterhouse steaks, glazed sea bass and free drinks for all of his guests.

Indeed, it was only a glimpse of how a multiplatinum-selling artist can indulge in the finer things of life.

Located just 19 miles away from his childhood home in Decatur, Ga., the vibe at STK is a world apart from the environment B.o.B knew as a youth.
