Do you think Jermaine told Young Shad that this:
…is the same thing that Kris Kross tried…
…or do you think he found the whole thing funny?
But you know, given how terrible most corporate hip-hop is right now, you'd think Bow Wow'd still be sitting pretty. Real talk – he's no more or less talented than anyone else your kids are listening to.
But then you watch videos like this and realize that he's perhaps the most strikingly unself-aware star of his generation. Kris Kross gave it up after one attempt at goin hard. Hammer went gospel (we'll ignore him takin shots at Jay-Z because you know he'd want us to).
But this is really the eighth or ninth time Bow Wow has released a song/album that tries to convince the world that he hard. And that desperation and inability to understand his place in music is what is such a turn-off.
More than his obviously terrible mic skills.
