Bow Wow Decides To Collar Himself

—the hip-hop star who grew up in front of America’s eyes over the past 16 years—has announced his retirement from the music business, telling RealTalkNY that “there’s no more that needs to be done on the music side, I’ve done everything.” And by “everything,” he means “released a record with a Parental Advisory sticker attached,” since that was the case with his latest album New Jack City II, which came out at the end of last month and debuted on the albums chart at No. 16, selling just shy of 31,000 copies in its first week on shelves. Bow Wow is claiming that he wants to focus on acting—he’s been on the bro-down Entourage and is currently working on a movie with Lil Wayne and Forest Whitaker—but I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a “comeback” record from dude within the next five years. After the jump, relive Bow Wow (when a Lil was attached to his name) appearing on The Arsenio Hall Show in 1993.
