Bow Wow is reportedly reaching out to fans for their opinion on which label he should sign with which includes possibly joining the likes of Jermaine Dupri and T.I.
Speaking via Twitter, Bow Weezy explained the reasons for why linking with So So Def would be a strong option.
"How many yall think I should sign with atlantic records n get wit T.I.?," he wrote on Sunday (July 19). "Gand hustle homie! Mr kev liles hopefully ill see yall tuesday. Or should I help jd rebuild so so def. Man up become a boss. And sign sum n*ggas that will bring us bk to da so so def yall luv n remember?" (Bow Wow's Twitter)
The rapper's upcoming signing has also caught the attention of The Game who previously won in a Madden 2009 football challenge against him last year.

Bow Wow, who confirmed his departure from Columbia Records last month, previously pleaded with his record company to allow him to be released from a contractual obligation.
"I'm going to talk directly into the camera because I know people are probably in the office getting calls saying Bow Wow was on here talking about he wants off Columbia Records," he said in a video. "Everybody in the office at Columbia Records, do me a favor. My fans, they see it. They recognize it. They see you guys ain't working as hard as you guys used to work back in 2000. It's a big difference, they see it...Can you please grant me this one wish? Columbia, can you please grant me this wish and let me go? That's all I'm asking, please let me go. Please, please, please, please, please, please. Thank y'all, I'm out." (Justin TV)
Reports spread online late last month which said the rapper was released from Columbia shortly after the video emerged.
