Cash Money Records' Bow Wow has announced plans to clear out his entire business team by firing all of his managers.
While not giving a reason why, Bow Weezy expressed his displeasure via Twitter.
"In one of those 'please dont f*** with me moods' today," Bow Wow revealed Thursday (December 17) afternoon. "Im firing all managers! Im taking the ray allen approach! Im managing myself. Who knows me better than me? I know this game very well...chilling with my aunt ant and @guesswhojus booking studio for the next 2 months...Just got off the phone with -->@realwizkhalifa we bout to do something major! look out for it."

Bow made headlines earlier this year after announcing a record deal with Cash Money.
"To the naysayers, I hope that you give me the opportunity to earn your respect," he wrote Tuesday (August 18) night. "I know that over the years I've put many of my faults on display which I make no excuses for. I'm young and I've made mistakes and I will make more. No different than any other 22 year old, I still have some growing up to do...To anyone who's confused or says I don't belong in Cash Money. Let me remind you that I've been down with Baby, Slim, Wayne and the whole Cash Money family from the beginning. 10 years ago when we really were 'Lil' me and Wayne did a song for the Hardball movie soundtrack. Baby was influential in my third album. Last year, Wayne and I spent 2 months together in New Orleans filming Hurricane Season. So please don't be misinformed and think I'm just jumpin' on 'what's hot' or trying to ride others success. This has been my extended family for more than a decade...And since everyone is asking, me and JD are cool! Nothing has or will change. He'll always be that father figure that I never had and we'll continue to make hits." (Global Grind)
Bow Wow, who confirmed his departure from Columbia Records earlier this summer, 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)
Former Cash Money member Juvenile recently spoke with SOHH about seeing Bow Wow carry on the legacy.
"Eh, they got some big shoes to fill," Juvie said about the Cash Money newcomers carrying on the legacy. "That's all I can say, I don't know anything about Jay Sean, I know about Bow Wow. Even Bow Wow pretty much was always a favorite of Baby's because they were cool. Bow Wow did always look up to Lil Wayne, I mean, it's not a bad look for 'em. I think it'll be a plus for Bow Wow being on Cash Money to be honest because they're capable of doing some big things with artists." (SOHH)
