Bow Wow Addresses YMCMB Rumors, BET Hosting Gig & Crying On Camera

Bow Wow talks about how the YMCMB crew is still united, shares acting tips and says he's happy to be on BET's 106 & Park.

With a new gig as a host for BET's 106 & Park, Bow Wow has shown he can step away from Rap. He has also shown this through acting. Recently, Bow Wow caught up with DJ Whoo Kid to speak about hosting on BET and acting. He also took time to explain why the Young Money crew appears distant "from the outside looking in."

"It's better than cool. It's greater than great," he explained of his situation at BET. "It's what I wanted. For me to be young, only 25 and already have this type of position on a billion dollar network, it's major."

Bow also explained that he enjoys acting. When asked if he found it easy to cry on camera, he explained that he can do anything once he goes into character.

"It's not [hard to cry]. Once you tap into character and you understand the story, you're golden from there. Everything else after that is pretty much easy." 

Bow also addressed rumors of a distant relationship with YMCMB. He went on to say that though they may appear to be distant, they are still united. 

"We are all our own individual artists with our own unique way of getting it how we're getting it. It's hard for us to always be together so from the outside looking in, a lot of people say we're distant but to us, we're not. We always know where everybody is at all times. For me, I'm in this situation where I can't leave New York. I'm here full time now. I was in Miami where we all lived at... But now that I'm here, Nicki is hosting American Idol. Everybody's all over the place getting it in." 

More from the interview can be seen below.

    It's funny when he says going AWOL should be ok.. Most of the time when things are going on with your family they will let you go home.. Just let your people know what the deal is.. Your bound under contract to the service

  • Deadbeat Dads and jealous half siblings are trash
    Bow Wow is only 25? Wow, that's amazing that this young man has his life so well put together. His deadbeat dad and his 2 fat half sisters are mad, that he don't want nothing to do with them.

    Bow Wow is Birdman's tax write-off, period. He will NEVER release an album under them, thank God. And that movie of his is going straight to the $5 bin at Walmart.

    Man, not even Birdman knows how many artists are signed to YMCMB. He said 40 and the interview corrected him saying it was 48.
