@EvokeTheSpirits Interview with Bow Wow (@YMCMB_BW) as he celebrates with @HennessyUS and @jermainedupri
Last week, Hennessy V.S and Jermaine Dupri hosted a private dinner at Tao Downtown in NYC to honor Bow Wow and his recent successes. The rapper, who turns 27 on Sunday, was dressed to impress in a charcoal gray shirt with a leather collar and matching leather skinny tie. Bow Wow was joined at the dinner by his longtime friend Angela Simmons, VH1 reality star Erica Mena, Jermaine Dupri, BET President Stephen Hill, his mother Teresa and several of his close friends.
Bow Wow sat at the head of the table and was dancing and smiling the entire night. Half way through the dinner, he raised an illuminated bottle of Hennessy and made a toast thanking everyone in the room for coming to celebrate his new role as host of BET’s 106 and Park and his recent recording project. Bow Wow is the epitome of the Hennessy mantra, Never Stop, Never Settle. His drive to succeed and chase his wild rabbit sets him apart from the rest and keeps him at the top of his game.
I spent a couple of minutes chopping it up with the host of 106 and Park and what I learned was he has a lot going on…
ETS: What’s your favorite cocktail or spirit to drink?
BW: Its depends where I am at, like today its all about Hennessy but if its like a basketball game or a party type of thing then I like some vodka, but if I’m at a club, I need a bottle of Moet Rose to the face.
ETS: Do you drink before a show?
BW: Na, because it messes up your voice, so I never had a drink before a show.
ETS: Besides 106 and Park what else you’re working on?
BW: I got Asphalt Yacht Club clothing (brand ambassador) we have our online store getting ready to launch, and we killed Agenda trade show, Rick Ross stopped to show love. I also just shot season two of URL with Smack, I’m also one of the partners of the Scream Tour we going to bring that back real soon. Of course more movies, more TV and producing behind the scenes plus NDI Vodka. I am just trying to be the next puff, be like the big homey.
ETS: Can we expect more music with you and Jermaine Dupri?
BW: Yea, the first record ya gon hear is called “Team Us” with Ne-Yo. This track is for the ladies and it’ll be the first time me and Ne-Yo worked together on a track.
ETS: Where do you rank NYC, Atlanta and LA?BW:
BW: I love NY because of the hustle, everyone hear is trying to get it, Atlanta is where I like to rest my head; I kick back chill with my moms and rest my feet. But LA will probably be my second home because my daughter is out there, plus Puff is out there in the hills telling me “look at this view” as we are in his house over looking something crazy.
ETS: Since you’re a huge sneaker head, what are your top 3 kicks of all time?
BW: Well they’re all Jordan’s, the retro 4s, the Jordan 13s, and the Jordan 5s.
Designer Shayne Oliver further pushes the envelope with his avant-garde intentions which highlight the collection’s technicality and material construction.
