Bow Wow and Soulja Boy were once the two biggest stars in the music scene. It’s safe to say that they’ve dropped off just a tad since their peak. So for them to announce that they’re going to make a joint project almost comes off as a comedic tale meant only for a Dave Chappelle sketch. I must admit that I laughed when I first heard this announcement, I knew it was going to be a car wreck waiting to happen. Then I began to think about car wrecks and how we all slow down at look at them, just so we can have something to talk about.
We can never forget when Wendy Williams produced that Aaliyah biopic and the whole nation tuned in to watch the travesty unfold. I personally didn’t watch it because I didn’t think it was going to be good, so I didn’t waste my time. I did log on to twitter however, and my whole timeline was filled tweets about the movie. They talked about how terrible it was, how bad the casting was, people just plain bashed the movie altogether. I was reading through the tweets and in my mind I thought “You might not like it, but you’re watching it.” The next day Wendy Williams says “You can say what you want about the movie, but it was still number one.” I was looking at the article thinking she has a point.
That’s why Bow Wow and Soulja Boy are going to do big numbers. I didn’t say that the mixtape was going to be good, but it will do good numbers. We all want to hear how bad it’s going to be. We all want to laugh and crack jokes about the album on Twitter, or Facebook just so that we can get the likes and comments. The album is going to be a conversation for people to have. People are going to stream the album in high numbers and Bow Wow and Soulja Boy are going to be laughing all the way to the bank.
So yea, i’m pretty sure that the album isn’t going to be great quality, but I expect big numbers because we all want our opportunity to crack jokes and make a mockery of it so that we can be noticed.
