“I always said years ago i’d retire from music before 30. I just can’t see myself at 30 years old rapping,” the “Let Me Hold You” singer continued in a series of tweets addressing his retirement plans.
“Made over 20 million off rap. Why be greedy? I’m good with everything i accomplished. I made it to the white house,” he concluded.
Bow Wow’s next album, which will be his seventh entitled “NYLTH,” will be executive produced by Snoop Dogg.
“My last album will be Executive Produced by my uncle Snoop and myself. Since he brought me in the game, it’s only right i involve him and end it with him,” Bow Wow wrote on Instagram alongside a throwback photo of Snoop Dogg.
