Bow Wow has become a topic of discussion on social media where trolls recently questioned his legacy.
The rapper took to Twitter to respond to a troll after they tweeted “imagine getting a gun put in your head to name 3 Bow Wow songs.”
The former childhood rap star told the troll that they “better name them,” along with a picture of himself with a gun doing a stick-up.
Bow Wow then proceeded to go back and forth between trolls and fans who defended his legacy.
Bow Wow reminded everyone of his hits during the recent Verzuz showdown with Soulja Boy, Don’t think the “Take Ya Home” hitmaker’s contributions are worthy of credit as one of the most impactful artists in hip-hop?
