Bow Wow The Price of Fame Interview

Monday, January 22, 2007

We've watched Bow Wow grow from a nice little boy to a mature young man. With 3 platinum albums before the age of 20, Bow Wow is up for the challenge with his 5th album release "The Price of Fame."

Besides rapping, Bow Wow has made an easy transition into acting with several movies such as "Like Mike," "Johnson Family Vacation," "Roll Bounce," "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift," and his list of films is steadily growing.

"Shortie Like Mine" - featuring Chris Brown is the first single from The Price of Fame and is frequently requested at radio stations across the country.

Although he's had more success than a person twice his age, he's humble and appreciates his fans.

Shelia Goss: Are you excited about your new album?
Bow Wow:
Most definitely. I've very excited. I put a lot of work into it.

Shelia: When will you be on tour again?
Bow Wow:

Shelia: What's different about The Price of Fame from your other albums?
Bow Wow:
With this album my lyrical content is a little bit different. I'm just growing up. I had a lot more input. I'm the co-executive producer, writing, producing along with Jermaine Dupri, It's a different look for me this time.

Shelia: Sounds like you're trying to take more of a hands on approach?
Bow Wow:
I have one of the best teachers. JD (Jermaine Dupri) is like my mentor and big brother. He taught me everything I know.

Shelia: With such a busy schedule, what do you do when you do find some down time?
Bow Wow:
I work hard and play hard too. Me and the boys get out and have a good time. We play Playstation 3. I'm young and like to have fun.

Bow Wow:
I like being on my own. I don't have to answer to anybody. I just be chilling...enjoying life.

Bow Wow:
I already have a label deal LB Dub with Sony. My artists Clee-O...my hype man...he's played in a lot of movies himself like in "Roll Bounce." He's already a super star. Then the 14 year old Jinsu. I'm just ready to pass the torch. He's like a younger version of me. Certain stuff that I don't talk about anymore, he can talk about.

Shelia: Speaking of movies, what's on your agenda for 2007?
Bow Wow:
I have 2 upcoming movies. I get scripts every week. I'm trying to decide on which ones I want to do. I'm trying to do at least 3 movies.

Shelia Do you plan on writing scripts?
Bow Wow:
I'll leave that to the writers (smile). I'm not ready for that.

Shelia: Besides doing 3 movies and a new CD, what other goals do you have for 2007?

I'm doing a lot of business. I'm opening up a franchise--my first McDonalds. I have a shoe store "Prestigious" in Atlanta. I want to own a piece of the Atlanta Hawks.
