Recalling how he ends up sealing a deal with the company, Bow Wow tells MTV, "We had two sit-downs." He explains more, "Upon the first sit-down, I called [co-CEO 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 [Jermaine Dupri], you with us.' From there, it was a done deal. So I wanna thank [him], Slim and Wayne."
Though he has now found a new home to release a studio project, Bow Wow says he is "in no rush to drop [his] next album." On when he will return to studio, the rapper writes, "Ima knock out my new movie 'Lottery Ticket' starring myself and Ice Cube. then I'll get started."
In the meantime, Bow Wow is gearing up to release a new mixtape titled "Greenlight". Most recently, he has premiered a music video for the mixtape's single "Love Struck", sharing screen with The Pussycat Dolls' Melody Thornton.
