Video: Bow Wow Will Record Studio Album No More
Bow Wow may not be seen making a follow up to his sixth studio album "New Jack City Part 2". Sharing on the possibility of not making any studio album in the future, the 22-year-old rapper reveals to RealTalkNY about his hopes to try something different.
"This my last album because for me, there's no more that needs to be done on the music side. I've done everything," Bow Wow opens up. "I've done everything from ... the scary thing is that I'm 22 years old. I'm young, I'm still a baby. On the music side, I've been doing this since five, 17 years of just non-stop music."
"There's nothing more that I wanna accomplish that I haven't seen yet. It's very repetitive," Bow Wow continues. "I've done seven arena tours, sold out tours. I've been to Europe, I've been everywhere. I've rocked every arena, every theater, every skating rink, everything. I visited every radio station, shook every hand, every autograph. It's kinda like, for me, I just feel like now, it's time for me to endure a new challenge. I feel like now it's time for me to go do something else."
"The acting career is taking off," he shares more. "The new movie I have is called 'Hurricane Season', starring myself and Forest Whitaker. Aside from that, I'm back on 'Entourage' ... The acting side of things is crazy. ... I'm so excited about focusing on that aspect of my career. I'm blessed that music has opened up all these different avenues, so I can choose."
Though saying that he will not record any new album, Bow Wow admits he will still make music. He says, "I'm gonna still make music. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't gonna make music. It's like a hobby. The studio and music for me is no different than Xbox ... Even if I wanna just go in there and just sit, it's just in me. I don't think I'll ever stop doing that. I'll never stop making music, but as far as albums, I'm cool. I'm good. Seven albums at 22 years old? That's crazy."
Bow Wow has dropped "New Jack City Part 2" in U.S. market on March 31. He teams up with T-Pain, T.I., Trey Songz, Swizz Beatz, Nelly, Johnta Austin and Ron Browz for the record, which is currently at number 16 on Billboard Hot 200 and at number 2 on Billboard Top Rap Albums chart.
