Bow Wow hasn’t released an album since 2009, but for fans who are waiting, don’t hold your breath… because he’s retired.
Well, one more album is on the way and that’s it — NYLTH, due later this year. The rap vet took to Twitter over the weekend to make the announcement.
“I always said years ago i’d retire from music before 30. I just cant see myself at 30 years old rapping,” Bow Wow tweeted.
In a series of tweets, he wrote, “Over 10 million sold, 6 arena tours, 10 top 10’s, a few number 4 platinum albums, 2 gold albums. I’M DONE. ‘Retirement only means that it is time for a new adventure.’ over 10 million sold. This the last one. THANK YOU. Made over 20 million off rap. Why be greedy? I’m good with everything i accomplished. I made it to the White House.”
Bow says his last album will be executive produced by Snoop Dogg and himself. “Since he brought me in the game, its only right i involve him and end it with him. ITS OFFICIAL!!!! THIS SH*T BOUT TO BANG ON MOMMAS! And we aiming and im talking RECKLESS on this album. NOBODY SAFE #DPG #ATK THE TITLE OF MY FINAL ALBUM ‘NYLTH.'”
