Bow Wow fans have waited a long time to witness the adult career of the former-kid-rapper-all-grown-up. But the rhymeslinging, Atlanta-based heartthrob isn't merely just satisfied with getting older, he's spent most of his career turning lil' dreams into big ones. “I want to be the next Will Smith. There's nobody else doing what I'm
doing at my age,” says Bow Wow in a recent statement. “I'm only 25 and I have a long life ahead of me. I got
a goal–I want to become the biggest black actor in Hollywood and then I
want to be able to drop an amazing album.”
And while we ponder how those big dreams match up to his forthcoming label debut on Cash Money Records–humbly titled “Underrated”–we'd like to offer the fans who've stuck by him since the Like Mike days a chance to grab some free tickets to see Bow Wow when he roll-bounces (sorry, couldn't help it) into town for a show at the City National Grove of Anaheim on June 8. We have FIVE pairs of tickets to give away.
You must be 18 and over to win the tickets. Winners will be notified next week; tickets will be held at will call.
Nate Jackson is the gatekeeper to your dreams of local dive bar stardom. If he writes about you, expect your band to be offered at least one more drink ticket than the rest of the bands on the bill. Get his attention with some groovy tunes and he might just do it. Then, boy will you feel special.
