Lil Mama made her return to Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club on Tuesday (Jan. 12), marking her first sit down with the morning show since their 2011 interview that is now the stuff of Internet legend. In addition to discussing her music, including her well-received “Sausage” single, the conversation with the Brooklyn rapstress also turned to Bow Wow. Responding to the viral joke that she and the rapper/actor look alike, Lil Mama revealed that she doesn’t mind the comparison at all. Why? Because Bow Wow is a “living legend.”
“Bow Wow is a legend, you cannot take that away from him,” Lil Mama said to DJ Envy and company. When challenged about her stance by Charlamagne Tha God, she went on to list Bow Wow’s notable accomplishments.
“Bow Wow has over 20 years of success in this business, and he’s still going. Bow Wow’s on like CSI right now. Didn’t he do 106 & Park, which is one of the most viewed shows in music? and before that, didn’t he sell out the Garden? Wasn’t our cousins feigning to go his shows when we was little? […] Bow Wow, he’s a legend. He put in work. He’s a living legend.”
Lil Mama also complimented Bow Wow on his looks, noting that a physical comparison to him is also not a bad thing. “You can’t offend me by comparing me to somebody who’s great, and handsome,” she said. “So if you saying we look good, then I’m good. ‘Cause Bow Wow look good.”
Lil Mama also offered to play Bow Wow’s sister in a film. Watch her commentary below (the Bow Wow discussion begins at 21:05).
