Bow Wow Sounds Off On Jermaine Dupri For 'Breakfast Club' Comments

"Why can't n****s keep my name out they mouth" the 31-year-old rapper tweeted.

Shad "Bow Wow" Smoss and his longtime mentor Jermaine Dupri are having some familial issues.

The trouble began early last week (Sept. 18) when the So So Def founder stopped by Power 105.1's The Breakfast Club with female R&B quartet Xscape to discuss the details on the upcoming So So Def reunion tour.

In light of Mac Miller's recent death, the morning radio show co-hosts began to press JD for details surrounding Bow Wow's lean addiction revelation. The label founder claimed that he "don't even be following Bow Wow," stating that this was his first time hearing of the incident.

This surprised DJ Envy, who (rightfully) likened the two to have a father and son, big brother and little brother dynamic. "It's just what y'all see,” JD responded. “It ain't really like that."

Taking some time to further explain the comments, Dupri went on to say that he is so accustomed to Bow Wow's internet antics, he no longer keeps up with it. “How long have I been dealing with this?” he cooly stated. “It’s been every day of my life since he was 12-years-old.”

But while downplaying the reality of the situation, Dupri stated that Bow Wow's addiction doesn't seem "realistic," especially because he's been there to guide him.

“If that’s your man, you had to see him doing the drugs, right?” he said. “And, if you see your man doing the drugs, you're supposed to say something if you’re a smart person. I have never seen Bow Wow do no drugs around me. And Bow Wow’s never been to jail. Bow Wow ain’t never got no cases beating on no women. Nothing. It’s not going to happen around me. So, I’m saying, I’m in his life.”

Apparently, Bow Wow doesn't agree. Posting a snippet of the comments on Twitter, the 31-year old rapper questioned why "ni**as can't keep [his] name out they mouth."

Moss went on to say that he's never met anyone he's "needed" and later announced his withdrawal from the tour.

This isn't the first time Moss has threatened to pull out of the tour. In a series of now-deleted tweets, Bow Wow expressed the same sentiment earlier this summer.

Is this time the real deal? Only time will tell.

Pandora’s Sound On: Spring Campaign Features Khalid, 2 Chainz And More

To usher in the spring season, Pandora designed a new playlist for select cities to help users enhance and amplify their listening experiences.

"We here at Pandora are launching a brand new campaign that amplifies the moment you’re in and helps you discover your unique sound—the music that moves you, the rhythm that fuels you, the album that inspires you to be you," a statement from Pandora's representatives reads.

Choosing iconic locations across America like Nashville, San Francisco, Oakland, New York City, Miami, and Atlanta, these select places have been given their own individual codes that lead to a customized playlist that coincides with the artist's work.

"We’ve commissioned leading street artists to create wall murals that depict their unique interpretations of sound and spring discovery. Each mural will have a QR code that leads to a customized playlist curated by each mural artist and reflects the music that inspired their work."

Some of the big names in music who appear on these playlists include Khalid, 2 Chainz, John Legend, and Becky G with a host of other popular artists. Though most of the playlist represents the artwork created in these select cities, there are hip-hop and R&B influences that make them exciting to listen to.
