Bow Wow celebrated his upcoming 27th birthday in New York City last night (Mar. 6) with an intimate dinner at TAO Downtown. Hosted by Jermaine Dupri and Hennessy VS, the event was attended by the rapper/actor/TV host’s close friends and family, including Eric Mena and Angela Simmons. Bow spoke with VIBE about his upcoming ventures, which include a clothing line, a vodka brand and a new single.
“I been around Puff for the last month-and-a-half, staying with him, and he’s just been coaching me and giving me all the game. It’s the blueprint, you know,” he said. “What y’all gonna start seeing from me now is just pure entertainment. I can’t really say ‘I’m a rapper,’ or ‘I’m this.’ I gotta really just say I do everything now. And that’s what [Puff’s] doing.”
Along with his Asphalt Yacht Club clothing, NDI Vodka, and 106 & Park hosting gig, Bow is also gearing up to release new music with a Dupri-produced single track called “Team Us” featuring Ne-Yo. He is also reading movie scripts and searching for his next role in a feature film.
“I haven’t read anything that grabbed me yet. But it’s coming, trust me. Being on TV everyday and they see how I’m acting, they’re sending them. But I just haven’t seen anything yet that’s like a Lottery Ticket for me, or that’s like a Roll Bounce for me. I pick my movies very strategically.”
