Cash Money Records rapper Bow Wow recently updated fans on his status with Young Money/Cash Money and said he is always going to ride for his clique despite the frequent break-up rumors.
Despite his full-time arrangement as BET’s newest “106 & Park” co-host, Bow Wow said his relationship with YMCMB is still solid.
“Yeah man, of course, of course,” Bow Wow said when asked by DJ Whoo Kid if he is still down with Young Money. “We all get asked that question. People see so many different crews around the hip-hop clique up. We are all our own individual artists with our own unique way of getting it how we’re getting it. It’s hard for us to always be together so from the outside looking in, a lot of people say we’re always distant but really to us, really we’re not. We always know where everybody is at all times. For me, I’m in this situation to where I can’t leave New York. I’m here full-time now. I was in Miami, that’s where we all lived at. Me, Wayne, Stunna. So now that I’m here, Nicki’s on ‘American Idol,’ she’s hosting ‘American Idol,’ I’m on BET, so, everybody’s all over the place getting it in.” (Whoolywood Shuffle)
Bow Weezy also said Birdman is the most financially stable artist on the Cash Money/Young Money roster.
“The only person that can kick back and kick their feet up is Stunna. He’s owning and going to the car lot buying new sh*t — he’s got way too much money, way too much. You see how I came out of tone. Way too much. [laughs] He’s a very intelligent man, very intelligent.” (Whoolywood Shuffle)
Prior to landing the new BET gig, Bow Wow credited moving to Miami and solidifying his Cash Money for improving his life.
“Moving to Miami helped me. It helped me find myself as a man. Now things are coming naturally. I’m in Cash Money Records, a place I wanted to sign with. Now I am at my peace, and when peace is in my life I am at my best. That’s when it’s real scary for my competition, because then I feel I am invincible,” Bow Wow said in an interview. “[What’s it like with the YMCMB family?] They aren’t only good people, but good artists as well. We all help each other out, so as long as we do that we can make the label and brand even bigger. That’s what we are about.” (Daily Nebraskan)
Last summer, he hinted at possible issues with the label and placed am emphasis on working independently.
“Doing everything on my own. No help from nobody. Going to radio dolo going to da clubs f*k’n wit dj’s dolo. So when i win im thankn myself,” he tweeted in August.
“Sh*t so f*cked up maaan.. I swear. Im tryna stay focused but its like at this point ‘F*ck that album’ & F*ck a release date. Im doin shows..”
“on tour my shows is sell’n out. Im able to feed my fam and do what i do. Thats whats important. Dis album has fallen to 9th place on my list” (Bow Wow’s Twitter)
