Bow Wow recently had a chance to speak on what it’s like being a father and explained his parental objects. The rapper also reflected on his own youth and how much his perspective on material possessions has changed.
Bow Wow explained that he’s still new to being a father and expressed that the hardest part so far is not living in the same city as his daughter. “My life as a father is, is, is kind of new. My daughter’s only one years old. She’ll be two in April, April 27th. Shai lives in Los Angeles and I’m in New York full time, it’s so hard. You know, I Skype with her, and I just wish that I can just reach in there and grab her little self and I can’t,” Bow Wow said on ‘Oprah: Where Are They Now?’
Bow Wow explained that he’s hoping his daughter will have a chance to experience some of the things other kids do that he wasn’t able to try. “For her I just wanna make sure that you know she’s able to do the things I wasn’t able to do. I wasn’t able to go to school dances. I wasn’t able to you know try out for my basketball team ’cause I was on the road,” said Bow Wow.
Bow Wow added that he’s changed since his youth and noted that he’s much more laidback now. “When I was younger I pretty much bought every car I wanted. We call it stunting you know that’s when you’re flashy and you got all the jewelry. But, like, I don’t even wear all that stuff anymore, like, I’m so laid back and you know, just chill. I feel like now I’m at that point in my life where that stuff doesn’t – it doesn’t identify who I am. I don’t need it anymore. I remember a wise man always telling me you know you’re still Bow Wow when you take all that stuff off right?”
