Bow Wow: "I Be Wishing I Was Dead Sometimes"

  • jayceon

    bows new music and steez is great. His new videos off the greenlight 3 are nice. BOW U INSPIRE ME TO GO TO SCHOOL TO GET MY MONEY, IM TRYNA BE YUNG N RICH LIKE YOU>.. therefore ur life is not worthless.

    Some of y'all people are full of shit. This nigga Bow Wow has been in the spot light since he was a little boy entertaining y'all. & more than half of the over opinionated fucks on here used to bump to the music. Though he makes hella money he human. He gave his life to entertain the world. Yea there were some luxeries to him doing so but at the same time he never got to experience some of the shit that most of us take for granted. Like high school memories and other shit like that. He didn't get to do half the stuff that we did. Him being rich and famous doesn't make him any less human or vulnerable. Money ain't happiness...and if y'all think just cause any person has financial wealth that they have no right to vent of complain...Y'all can go to hell. I bet if anyone else made this tweet that wasn't in his position, no one would have as much shit to say but because he is who he is you treat him like he ain't eva supposed to feel...smh

  • MPistol

    here is sound advice in hip-hop - never ever ever put 'lil before your name, necause when you really get to be a big boy, that kinda sh*t haunts you (oh you want act like that wasn't part of the problem? the 'lil? who you kidding?) sh*t Shad Moss ain't a bad rap name - go with that one homie - an get serious with your craft man!!! Don't tell me about what you can do for some girl - too many pu**y whipped rappers as it is man

  • amuntalan

    Thats one of the biggest misconception about celebrities, or anyone with a smile on their face and assuming they all happy. careful what ya'll wish for, I LOVE BOW WOW for his music, his realism, and honesty. honesty for a celebrity to write on a social network, how he truly feels knowing that it'll be at the press in seconds. Have a heart people, and quit being all judgemental, cause life is too short to take anyone or anything for granted.

  • J-hunt da Prodigy

    It's sad how being a celebrity, instantly means you have no right to have problems, just cause he rich don't mean he don't go through shit too. Yall niggaz don't know what the hell he go through day to day. They might be a collosal problem in his family. I'm not even a fan of Bow, but damn. However, I would rather cry in a mansion then a low-income apartment lol

  • hellrazor

    i wish this quote had come from SOULJA BOY, i'd be more than happy to grant his wish. i could care less about bow wow.

  • look man

    "... start looking at Shad. Not Bow Wow." promotion. going for new fan base.

  • Sheen

    I don't like Bow Wow's music either, but damn...do y'all have to be cold like that?

  • I SEE NOW

    REALLY SHAD? CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR BABY BOY. LET ME SHOW YOU WHAT US REGULAR FOLKS DEAL WITH. DON'T THINK I'M COLD BLOODED BUT TO HEAR ANY BODY TALK ABOUT THEY WISH THEY WERE DEAD, WHEN WE HAVE PEOPLE IN IRAQ AND AFGANISTAN DYING EVERYDAY AND WISHING THEY HAD JUST ONE MORE MINUTE WITH THEIR FAMILIES MAN YOU CAN GO SUCK AN EXHAUST PIPE YOU FUCKING LAME. YOU HAVE PEOPLE LOOSING THEIR JOBS, HOMES, LOVED ONES, AND LIVES. I KNOW YOU HAVE PROBLEMS TOO, THEY'RE JUST NOT FINANCIAL IN NATURE. I'LL GIVE YOU A LIST AND IF YOUR PROBLEM IS NOT HOMIE YOU MIGHT WANT TO GET HELP. DOES MOM HAVE CANCER DO YOU HAVE CANCER LOST YOUR JOB(THAT MIGHT BE A GOOD THING) LOST YOUR HOUSE CHILD BEEN MURDERED FAMILY MEMBER BEEN MURDERED FAMILY MEMBER MURDER ANOTHER FAMILY MEMBER LOST LOVED ONE IN WAR CITY FLOODED KIDNAP VICTIM FAMILY MEMBER KIDNAP VICTIM VICTIM OF DOMESTIC ABUSE ARE YOU A SINGLE PARENT ARE YOU A SINGLE PARENT ABOUT TO LOOSE YOUR JOB OR HOME. ANYBODY WHO READS THIS I KNOW IT MIGHT BE TOUGH RIGHT NOW, IF YOU CAN FIGHT JUST ANOTHER MINUTE OR ANOTHER SECOND TRUST ME YOU CAN MAKE IT THROUGH. SHOW YOURSELF YOU HAVE IT IN YOU.

  • The.Watcher

    "Bow Wow: "I Be Wishing I Was Dead Sometimes"" Yes, Bow Wow, I "be" wishing you were dead sometimes, too. Oh, and learn grammar, you illiterate fuck.

    • Tom

      Omg, you are just so cold, look at the bigger picture; also, why don't you learn how to speak normally, without profanity.

    • soBeast

      for real tho man, you dont say that shit. him being dead dont benefit anybody. suicide is serious, you gotta be going through a lot to be having those kind of thoughts.

    • amuntalan

      dont be so heartless.. people have feeling, any time of person.. so if they want to vent how they truly feel through words, even if it makes no sense than let them do so. STOP HATING!! thats why the world is as shallow, thats why children are killing themselves.. because of hatred. QUIT hating and start LOVING!!

  • Retard

    What a dumbass!!!! This fool talks about going through shit daily, yet his music is still about money cars hoes (see Don't Know About That)!!!! If he used his music to vent about his problems then he wouldn't be suicidal...instead he writes about girls n money...I miss the old bow wow...how does one get less mature as he grows up? The OLD bow wow was real. This guy just wants to rap about fame n fortune...

  • mythangbig

    dammmmmm cash money got dat lil nigga trippin like that lol nigga u made yo choice

  • g-hoppy

    head up, a reg job suxx as well, i could tell u stories... at least u get paid well (i believe/hope/haven no idea lol)sumtimes when i hate it so much dat im thinking bout runaway lol (luv life too much to ever concider suicide) i think of ppl whos job is even shittier than mine and this makes me feel a lil bit better. hope this helps u

  • MixMakers.Net

    Dude's such an idiot. I'd bet cash that if he did it the other way he would be sitting in Kroger wishing that he was a rap star. Like the rest of us that don't get opportunities like him. He got it easy, he shouldn't wish he had it harder.

  • Wellokay

    Y'all are some cold-hearted cats!!!

  • manchild

    I aint hatin on the fact he's feelin emotional right now but i kinda doubt he really would switch places with the next man for a ''regular'' life. But the truth is havin so much money especially from his young age can't buy u real love and maybe short term happiness. an thats real

  • carbucket

    Get over it bro, if you had a regular job you would be unhappy there too. Lift up you skirt grab your balls and make some $. If your soooo sick of this shit. Liquidate all those Lambos you got while they are still worth something. Sell most of your jewelry get an affordable house. Then you need to hookup with a good financial advisor and spend the next 3 years full filling all of you contractual obligations while living on just the basics. You can get free gear and transportation. Set yourself up for an early retirement and enjoy the rest of your life. Don't even announce your retirement. Just disappear, Your not Jay-z or Em no1 is gonna beg you to come back. Once you have stopped doing movies albums and whatever else you do for a year or too you will end up on those XXL mag milk boxes saying "where y'all at" and then its a wrap.There will be plenty new young artist that will happily step in the limelight and eventually you will be able to walk the streets just like us regular ppl. I say 5 years. As long as you dont pull up in a Bently with 500k in jewels I promise you can go to the store and do whatever with no hastle. CHUUUUCH

  • Jesse Andersen

SHIT IS REAL

  • white milk

    hold ya head up bow. u cant listen to n1gg@s. n!gg@s have no idea how to support each other, somehow that has become "gay". showing any type of emotion equals being gay. you have to surround yourself with ppl that are not about ignorance and bs. i know theres gonna be a lot of negative comments about your tweets but suicide is no joke and theres always a better way. if you truly mean what you say then its not too late. go to school and get a job. you have the money so go for it, of yea and FUK envious, ignorant aSs n1gg@s!!!!

  • J.M.

    Coincidence! I be wishing you was dead, too!

  • Ricky

    I agree with someone else on this post. I know suicide is a serious issue. But get yourself some real help. cause looking for sympthy out here in this behid the screen society you won't get none. I wish him the best and to any body else thinking about it talk to someone. Cause suicde is forever.

  • Lit

    He has some serious verb tense issues. Mr. Wow, you wouldn't cut it in school, so keep dreaming. "I be wishing" haha. I'd hate to be as ignorant as he is, with or without the money.

  • real nigga talkin

  • lol

    bow lol maybe he should off hiself hes rich ass hell still complaining nobody cares bout his life

  • big roc

    i'd off myself if i made a movie like lottery ticket too

  • 7 Mile 4 Life

    He "wudda" wrote his own sh!t, he "wudda" not been JD's b!tch, he "wudda" did things a lot differently and still would be weak. Bow listen up no one can save you; not even Jada.....write ur own sh!t and maybe the industry will respect you!

    • Migzy X

      Dont be so harsh wit that lil boy... Please Bow Wow, keep it down low though and go talk to your homies to find help, because over here, we wont do shit except sayin you're wack ! Not really supportive, is it ?

  • itsKgosi

    the man is rich and whining...wtf does he want, be greatfull for what u have

    • Lee

      People keep saying he's whining. @ the end of the day money can't always buy you love or happiness. "Its lonely @ the top," "money is the root of all evil." and "Mo' money, mo' problems" And thats real shit.

  • kennyken

    man if he feels that way i'd say just take a break and go to school, live your dreams. but that may kill the rap career.

  • Frankie

    bow wow is pussy, watch him address soulja boy on youtube, its quite hilarious how "thug" he is. GTFOH

  • dang

    goddamn it u people,u have no souls no more

  • eldonk-ey

    I also some times wish bow wow was dead. Ps I properly want to kill myself if I was addicted to money and had to make bullshit records to get my shot of dope(money)

  • N!ck

    People want what they don't have. People with regular jobs want the excitement of a hip hop career (without realizing its downsides), hip hop artists want the menial stability of a regular life (without realizing its downsides).

  • DJ Blur

    Awe he's mad that he got put on blast by raz-b that he's a gay? Believe me Bow, you don't wanna work a regular 9-5...ill f you right i will.. ill f you right i will and you don't even put your "REAL" life in your lyrics all the time yet

  • stu

    t dot. he sacrificed his life when he got fame as a young kid, that was sacrificing his normal life right there
