Negro Please

 



Only Bow Wow could talk about failure in such an arrogant way.

Ya'll hear that? Because Bow Wow didn't sell hip-hop is dying. Nevermind Officer Ross just moved a 157,000 copies of his new album (which is actually pretty good) or that we have a new White Mike in hip-hop. Forget that Jadakiss moved over 130,000 units the first week of his release with no major promotion. Nah, none of that matters because Kris Kross 2000 didn't sell a lot of records.

We can officially put a bullet in rap now.

Apparently no one informed dude that his fan base is a bit different from that of T.I., Lil' Wayne, and T-Pain and that they're a bit older now and probably not into you trying to rhyme like T.I.'s nephew or Wayne's bad ass cousin.

I won't even bother trying to understand why cursing on kiddie records is a good thing. It's not like he wrote the lyrics anyway.

I wish child stars would learn when they are beginning to wear out their welcome and plan their transition into something else accordingly. Bow Wow could have easily had a sitcom a few years ago but he was dead set on auditioning to be the next LL Cool J (post 95 version) with his R&B singer assisted singles.

Hopefully he makes the most of his acting gigs. It's his only shot of relevance.

Oh, and to be fair, I don't agree with Soulja Boy's claims that he's ending rappers' careers.
"You always gonna face different chapters that you go through in life, period, with whatever you're doing," he explained in an interview. "Haters come with every job and whatever you're doing in life, so you just got to do what you do. I just outshined all my haters. I done had beef with a lot of different artists, I done had a lot of artists done had different opinions about my music but at the end of the day though, it's gonna take a whole lot to stop me. I done ended a lot of n*ggas' careers, you feel me? And before I get out the game, I'ma cause hell." (Rolling Out TV)
The only person's career he can end is a speech coach.

The Cynical Ones.
