Bow Wow has been in the news a lot this past year for his questionable and often emotional posts on social media. Even though he's clearly been going through a lot, the rapper returned to social media this week to announce that he will not be doing any more press moving forward. "I like talking to the ones who matter my fans. Thats it. I'm not answering your questions. They don't give a f**k about me," Bow Wow wrote on an Instagram caption announcing his decision. "The press will no longer get that power no more. Michael jackson tried to warn us."
Bow made one exception, though, in order to stop by The Breakfast Club for one last radio interview before calling it quits with the press. The rapper took to Instagram again to make the announcement, writing that the interview could've been done before "but c tha god was out. I told envy no! HE GOT TO BE THERE. If we gone do it lets do it right!" Now, the final interview has aired and Bow Wow touched on a number of topics during his sit down with DJ Envy, Angela Yee, and Charlamagne Tha God.
Bow Wow addressed a tweet he sent out that claimed he had been signed to Death Row Records when he was just 6-years-old. According to Bow Wow, Suge Knight made a call to his Mom telling her to bring him to the Death Row offices. When they walked in Suge greeted them, giving Bow Wow his first Dogg Pound chain. Bow Wow also revealed that he was an original member of The Dogg Pound along with west coast rappers Kurupt & Daz Dillinger.
Bow Wow, of course, had to address the fan-made image of a young Bow Wow alongside the rest of the Death Row Records crew. He emphasized that when he posted the picture on Twitter he wasn't trying to flex on the internet. Bow Wow claims he was really a part of the same label as hip-hop legends Dr. Dre ad Tupac Shakur.
Bow Wow was asked to discuss in further detail his thoughts on suicide, which he's been sharing on Twitter recently. The 31-year-old explained the because he started his career so young, as well as becoming as successful as he did, he often feels like there's nothing left for him to experience. "I’ve done everything I’ve wanted to do, so what’s the next phase,” Bow Wow said. “What else is there for me to do?”
Bow Wow expressed his frustration with getting too much too young by comparing his life to a circle, saying he's just been “running this big circle of life." He tries to constantly try new things and dip into different aspects of the game because he believes that "If you keep doing the same shit over and over again you get bored.”
