Title: Bow Wow Calls It Quits (thanks god)
Post by: Elano on May 23, 2008, 12:23:15 PM
After entering the rap game at the age of 13 under the tutelage of Jermaine Dupri and Snoop Dogg, Bow Wow has decided to bow out of the Hip Hop game and focus on acting. Over the last several years Bow Wow, whose real name is Shad Gregory Moss, has seen his acting resume increase with roles in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Roll Bounce and the upcoming films Patriots and Driving Lessons.

After 16 years in the music industry and six successful albums, I've decided to shift my energy to something else I'm passionate about, acting," Bow Wow tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I'm going to try to be the next Will Smith." Since the rapper-turned-actor is 21, his reference of "16 years" likely includes his 1992 appearance on The Arsenio Hall Show at the age of 5.
Prior to his announcing his decision, Bow Wow began recording material for his seventh album, H.I.M. (History In the Making). The album is expected to be released late in 2008, and Bow Wow would not definitively state if it would be his last. In the meantime, Bow Wow will take a recurring role in the upcoming season of HBO's Entourage. Bow Wow will be cast as Charlie, a stand-up comic who is a client of Kevin Connoly's character Eric Murphy.


bow wow is just another big head  :laugh:

Bow Wow On Will Smith

"I'm not tryna be like Will Smith cause Will Smith is not a real rapper. He was more of a bubble gum rapper. The only real rappers out there right now are Me, Kanye, 50, and maybe Jay. But Jay ain't in it like that no more." - Bow Wow, XXL Magazine

Will Smith On Bow Wow

Will reportedly said, ?A grown man don't answer to no child. I'm a grown ass man. I cut records before his momma let somebody cut to have him. My worst movie grossed almost twice as your best movie. Check the records and read a book young man."

lmfao @ will smith on bow wow

Retiring from rap before 21 is kinna lame though. I'd actually like to hear how Bow Wow would sound if he really tried and wrote his own shit (which he doesnt do, right?). There's enough garbage out there already, one more bow wow album wont matter too much...  ::)

Will owned the shit out of him and you know it. Read a book, be a smart black guy instead of getting clowned on my 70%+ of Hip Hop listeners. That was too big headed of him to call himself a real rapper. Teenage girls who're just about hitting maturity younger than 16 are the only ones who're going out of their way to buy his albums.

Because guns and women and drugs aren't the only things on earth to talk about. He probably got clowned on because his singles actually were played mainsteam for even kids to here. Don't even bring up ghost writers, a majority of producers/rappers even today have them still and it ain't that much of a big deal.

What's 'Keepin it real' in your sense then?

Man, who's he trying to kid, retiring from rap at 21? He's just saying that so that "he can come back like Jordan". Watch him, he'll say just that.

And Will Smith - ha ha, he put Bow Wow in his place with that quote nicely. Sure Will Smith's sorta pop, but who didn’t wanna be the Fresh Prince, flat top, gold chain and some fresh kicks?

Great point.

Even though I think everything he'd done since Ali is really corny, I've always respected him and his early records. Even in that period during the mid 90's where you HAD to be  a thug to radio play, he was still regular Will...

Yeah, his element of ATTRACTING THE FEMALE AUDIENCE AGED 15 AND YOUNGER AND THE BOY AUDIENCE WHO'RE NOT ALLOWED TO LISTEN TO REAL HIP HOP TILL THEY BRUSH THE AGE OF 13. It's a real challenge to show people if you've got talent or not when you're aiming at the older more sophisticated audience, and as we've just been shown, Bow Wow for some reason crowned himself as a 'real rapper'... :-X

you're really talking about the days of when lyricism was at its peak, when you had the big puns, the big l's the De La soul's feat common sense, tribe called quests, the canibus's , chino xl's, then he made he came out with his big willy style, and then went jiggy everyone used to always refer to him as garbage

You've got Mug written across your forehead son. Go wash it off.

Everyone who referred to him as garbage = You and your socailly inept crew. It was mainstream music where people of any age could listen to and not be influenced to start calling women your bitches or hoes, or influence beefs between others. It was just feel good music if you will. Stop hating, i see you dancing to Solja boy in your spare time. Hang your head in shame G.

Straight up, Fresh Prince shits on Bow Wow's career. First off, Bow Wow look gay as hell in that video. Second Prince had that shit on lock even before going by Will Smith and having ghostwriters. I mean, everyone knows Nas ghostwrote Jiggy, so Nas is just as much to blame if you want to blame anyone for putting Hip-Hop in the Bling Era.

Now here are some songs that straight up shit all on Bow Wow's career. And Prince had no ghostwriter then.

of course the classic that Will wrote himself and shits on every song JD ghostwrote for Bow Wow.

lol your the first will smith fan that i ever came across.. his movies are good but as a rapper? lots of rappers got shunned for those awards but at that time frame, hip hop wasn't as mainstream as it is in modern day everyone used to diss the hell out of will , him vanilla ice and hammer
his biggest hit summer time was ghostwritten...  he jacked the beatnuts for a beat lol countless cats ripped him in verses
its awhole new era now though
