In the latest issue of XXL magazine, Bow Wow had some interesting things to say about Will Smith.
”But to me, honestly Will wasn’t like a real rapper.”
For old school hip hop fans, Bow Weezy’s comments may be shocking but the under 21 with a Black Card emcee didn’t stop there.
”He was more like a gimmick. Then he zapped in to get a TV show, and it was on and poppin’. Then after that he was in Hollywood. So things came easy for him. With me, I’m a rapper. I ain’t with the whole colorful cornball type things. That’s just not my style.”
Bow Wow, who’s set to make an appearance in the third installment of The Fast and Furious franchise also has his sites set on the acting world. However, unlike some rappers turned actors, he wants to do a little of everything.
”Will [Smith] can act, but he does more of those blockbuster Hollywood movies, which I wanna do. But also I wanna do it like Denzel-movies that really mean something. I feel like I can definitely be better than him.”
In the interview, the 18-year-old emcee also talks about his future plans in the music business his status with So So Def Records, and of course, his main squeeze Ciara.
”We just found each other, and we just riding it out,” he says of the relationship. ”It’s a beautiful situation.”
