Bow Wow recently discussed his ability to dodge negative press based off controversial Twitter remarks he has made in the past, like promising to fire his entire management staff.
Bow says he does not regret any statements he has ever made because of his ability to maintain followers.
“For me, you know, I’m an entertainer, I think I can get away with a lot, because I’m an actor too and I think a lot of people, they don’t think that,” Bow Wow explained in an interview. “They just think music first when they see me, which is understandable, but I’m also an actor, so sometimes I say things out of just acting mode…I don’t care, I don’t take it back. If I say it, I say it. It is what it is –’cause if it was hurting me, I would lose followers. I just gain like another hundred thousand, so I’m on my way to a million followers on Twitter right now. I’m at half a million right now and counting, so no, it hasn’t hurt me yet.” (BET)
Earlier this year, Bow Wow called out DJ Drama for turning him down on a mixtape collaboration.
“i chose @djdrama 1st because ima fan and i respect and love his movement. and still is. but i dont kiss a** im grown…Understand im use to the hate, and doubt. this been going on since i was 12. this aint new. this my habitat when it comes to hip hop.” (Bow Wow’s Twitter)
Last January, Bow Wow threatened to end his Twitter account after his mother joined the social network.
“@MsTCaldwell delete your account. or im deleting mine and my fans are going to be mad at you.,” he wrote. “Making my mother deleter her twitter account. NOW!” (Bow Wow’s Twitter)
In summer 2009, Bow Wow made headlines for joining Cash Money Records.
“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.” (Global Grind)
