Bow Wow also explains his Cash Money Records departure.
Bow Wow left Cash Money after six years without releasing his Underrated album. He says that he didn’t realize how much time was going by while he was there given his work hosting 106 & Park, among other things.
“I had so many other things going on [besides music],” the rapper says to XXL. “Then 106 comes and I do that for two years. I was making so much money outside of rap that I was so comfortable, I wasn’t even checking for music like that. I never even blew up the label’s phone like, ‘Yo, what’s going on?’ I never once tripped because I was cool. I was fortunate to have so many hustles that not doing one wasn’t hurting me. The only thing that was hurting me was the fact that my fans would want music or I wanted to put out stuff. It was a situation that I wished worked out for the best, because any situation that I do, I want it to work. Anything you do in business, you want it to win.”
