Last month, the BET Awards 2023 took place in Los Angeles, hosting some of the culture’s biggest names at the Microsoft Theatre. During the event, radio host and podcaster Bryhana Monegain asked Bow Wow about Hip Hop’s absence on the Billboard 200 and the Hot 100 charts this year, and his response caught many off guard.
“‘Cause n-ggas puttin’ out trash ass music,” he said. “Everything sound alike, everything repetitive, same tempo … everybody could do that, you know what I’m saying?”
He continued: “You really gotta have talent, you really gotta go. I think people are startin’ to get tired of it now, that’s why you don’t see nothin’ chartin.’”
By June last year, six different rappers had already landed a No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. On the Hot 100, two Hip Hop tracks had secured a spot at the top by this same time. Whereas, Lil Uzi Vert just became the first Hip Hop artist this year to bag a No. 1 album on the Billboard 200 with their recent Pink Tape LP.
Despite his comments, Bow Wow still managed to take home a Billboard award for himself earlier this month, which he shared on Instagram.
“Wanted to share this moment with all my fans! This is you guys’s just as much as it is mine!” he wrote in the caption. “This makes a me a 2x Billboard Award Winner!!! Just when i thought i’d never tour again or even sell out another arena @managerandy told me dont even worry ima have you back in these arenas in time. It wasn’t over night either but i had patience and now look! Thanks brother! We just getting started!
