Everyone knows the industry is beyond shady and very few people have been able to take it over. For all the jokes and negative connotations thrown Shad Moss’ way (I actually heard Chris Brown out rap him the other day), he’s had the career many can only be lucky enough to sustain. Droves of smash singles and a respectable acting career notwithstanding, there’s always the spectrum of his career hardly seen or spoken about.
Years of hustling, expectations and knives in the back have obviously taken their toll on Bow Wow as he expresses the darker side of the fast life on “Sell My Soul.” Recorded and filmed over a year ago, hence the NBA 2K10 mention, it does represent an honest attempt from Bow to expose an element of depth to rhymes many have written off years ago.
All he wants is to be his own man, his own artist, smoke his own dro and pop his own pills. Is that too much to ask for? Probably so, right?
