There’s even more movement in the hip hop business this week, as Columbia Records has lost one of their major artists. This past Sunday Bow Wow took a big announcement to UStream and Twitter stating, “It’s official, I’m a Cash Money Millionaire.” When he decided that he wanted to leave Columbia Records, he had two options, join T.I.’s camp through Atlantic Records, or relaunching So So Def when Jermaine Dupri was prepared. However, a third option presented itself in the form of Cash Money Records.
“We had two sit-downs,” Bow Wow said. “Upon the first sit-down, I called [co-CEO Birdman] and told him what I wanted to do.” Bow Wow felt at home with the label and its representatives and immediately signed. This now means that Bow Wow, Lil Wayne, Omarion and Drake are all on the same team. Expect big things people.
