“It’s another huge cast. I’m very excited about how my acting career is taking off,” Bow Wow told AllHipHop.com. “I am taking on all challenges coming my way. The pressure of carrying a Cube Vision film on my shoulders to working with Tyler Perry; man, skies the limit for me. No telling what’s going to happen next.”
On the rapping side, Bow Wow is planning to drop a new installment of his Greenlight Mixtape series featuring Jadakiss, in addition to working on his debut album for Cash Money Records.
Additionally, Bow Wow will be featured as a playable character in EA Sports’ highly anticipated NBA 2K11 game featuring Michael Jordan.
