Once every generation, an artist comes around that just touches the world through with their music. Bow Wow is clearly not that artist. Bow Wow, who is best known for such hit singles as…. uhhh…hmmm…. is probably best known for not being Lil’ Romeo. Some say that it’s better to burn out than to fade away. I’m not really sure if this applies to Bow Wow since he seems pretty burnt-out and he’s more or less faded from the public conscious.
Bow Wow announced his retirement on twitter while hyping up the release of his upcoming and final album. He claims he is retiring because “I just can’t see myself at 30 years old rapping.” According to reports Bow Wow is planning to continue acting. In all seriousness, I don’t think I’ve ever listened to a whole Lil Bow Wow song, but it’s incredibly impressive that he was able to make a career for himself at such a young age. He released his first album at 13. What were you doing at 13? I was probably harassing older kids on Xbox Live with the new, cool swear that I learned.
Hopefully Lil Bow Wow is still up to make Like Mike 3: This Time It’s Personal.
