Bow Wow is gearing up for the release of his 7th studio album and tells VIBE that this is his most controversial piece of work to date!

The Cash Money rapper also admits that throughout his decade-long career, he’s been living a lie, but now he’s ready to show the world who he really is after being overlooked for so long. Check out what he told VIBE recently below:

“I felt overlooked my entire career, and felt like I never got credit for anything that I’ve ever done,” Bow Wow told VIBE. “This is what everybody turned me into—a little beast and now I’m on attack mode.

“There’s a certain perception of me. But I’m ready to open up and give the world all of me. I had to sacrifice acting up an image that I never wanted in the first place, and I did it because it was the only situation that was going to put my mother in the right place and take care of my family. But it doesn’t feel good doing shit that you don’t really feel good about. I never felt like I could be me. Now, I’m ready to say if you don’t like it, than you don’t like me.

“This album will be my most personal and probably most controversial because of the title,” he said. “Some might hate on it, but it’s true. It’s going to make people understand why I’m feeling like that. I haven’t announced the title, but I pretty much have it confirmed in my head. This is what I want, and what I’m asking for.”
