Bow Wow is feeling anxious about his next album. He’s been promoting his new movie ‘Lottery Ticket’ and hasn’t had the time to get in the booth. The Cash Money rapper told Nnete of Houston’s 97.9 The Box that he recently called up his former protege, Jermaine Dupri to share his concerns.
“I was just talking to Jermaine [Dupri] yesterday. I called him and was like ‘yo I know I never really called you and said anything like this before. I’m kind of scared, I’m nervous because I wanna get in the studio so bad. I’m know for putting out hit records and I don’t wanna be away for too long to where I don’t know what that feeling feels like again.'”
It’s both a gift and a curse for the 23 year old, but he says Birdman is very happy that he’s opened the door for more Cash Money artists to get movie roles. Bow Wow reveals that he almost got Nicki Minaj a part in the movie.
“To be honest Nicki was close to being “Nikki” in the movie…I was responsible for that. I said let’s get Nicki out here to audition and I called Nicki and she actually auditioned. I thought she did good but unfortunately you know how things don’t work out.”
Bow recently visited Lil Wayne is prison. He said Weezy told him to stay out of trouble because guys like them aren’t built for jail.
“It was a humbling experience and one thing he told me when I went to visit him was ‘Bow, This aint for us, this aint it.. This aint built for cats like us. They don’t understand us we don’t understand them.. don’t do it man, just stay out of trouble you and Drizzy yall stay clean yall stay doing what yall do yall can do this forever. all of this, it aint worth it . I knew he meant it, cause Tune never lectures me like that but he was serious.’ His spirits are high. When he gets out we definitely planning on this Young Money Cash Money Tour, myself, Nicki, Drizzy Wayne and the whole entire family.”
