“I’m passing the Lil Bow Wow torch to Jinsu,” said the rapper and now label head in a statement. “This Bow Wow movement with teenagers, girls and kids goes back to Jermaine being a mentor, father figure and learning from him and watching him for the past seven years.”
Young Jinsu is a young rapper who hails from Rhode Island is now a part of Bow Wow’s label and crew, The LB Dub Gang, which includes Clee-O, an 18 year old actor/rapper who has already been featured alongside Bow Wow in “Roll Bounce” and The Rock in “Walking Tall.”
“Jermaine has blessed me with the ability to do what I do and he’s given me my shot into the industry,” Bow Wow explained. “So now, it’s my turn to give blessings back to other people that also have the opportunity to do bigger and better things. It’s only right to push your people forward.”
In addition to the label, Bow Wow recently released his fifth album, The Price of Fame. The album’s first single, “Shortie Like Mine,” featuring Chris Brown, has enjoyed major airplay, and Bow Wow hopes his second single, “Outta My System,” will do the same.
