“It’s official, I’m a Cash Money Millionaire” Bow Wow told his fans via Twitter.
The rapper had parted with Columbia Records earlier this year and had said that he was deciding between signing with T.I.’s Grand Hustle (through Atlantic Records) or So So Def when Jermaine Dupri signed a new deal.
Cash Money Millionaire co-CEO Birdman gave Bow Wow a third option. Bow said that “we had two sit-downs, upon the first sit-down, I called Birdman and told him what I wanted to do. So it was a no-brainer. He was like, ‘Bow, you always been family. Next to Wayne, I look at you like my son. If you not with JD, you with us.’ From there, it was a done deal. So I wanna thank [him], Slim and Wayne.” Bow Wow also added that, “with me coming to Cash Money, I bring something to the table that hasn’t been there in their history. I bring the whole Hollywood side, from that perspective.”
Bow Wow will release the Greenlight mixtape, a single in November and a new album probably by the end of the year.
