Celebrity Jury: Bow Wow

What’s up, what’s happening??

Now it’s been a while since we have had a court session.  You can catch up here, here, and here! Let’s talk about Shad Moss.  L’il Bow Wow.  Mr. 106 & Park!

LIL-BOW-WOW-TYRA

Get into those luxurious locks!  Let’s get started.

Fact: Bow Wow has some jams.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaass!

Don’t be mad!

Fact: This Bow Wow and Omarion thing happened…

bow-wow-o

You know how Watch The Throne was like super successful?  This was the Dollar General version of that.  And it was trash.  The songs were trash.  The only quality thing we got from this was Bow Wow’s sass.

“We gone own the forff quarter!
And if you don’t jump on the bandwagon now…”

::neck roll:: ::finger wave::

This song was trash.  Even if you liked it, you were wrong.

Fact: Bow Wow is not ugly.

Short, yes.  Ugly, no.

Fact: Remember him dating Ciara??

Ciara, girl those notes!

Fact: You didn’t think I forgot Marco Polo, did you????

Fact: Roll Bounce is the worst.

Nope.  Not even a little.  This movie was terrible in every way.

Fact: Bow Wow is realistic.

Currently, Bow Wow is a host on 106 & Park.  This was a show where he dominated the countdowns and was a featured guest at one point.  I remember people clowning him for taking the gig as it was acceptance that he was no longer famous anymore.  I might have even done it.

But let’s get real, times are hard for those stars who came up in the early 2000’s.  It was a different time and sound that is now considered dated by most. So instead of going hungry, Shad took a job that pays consistently and keeps him employed.  He’s not out here scooting across Queen Latifah’s floor or releasing videos with the World Star Hip Hop tag.

So I’m not going to dis finding a way to stay paid without resorting to super flop ass records.

Fact: Azimiz???

Fact: Bow Wow led to the best Catfish episode ever.

D-Pimpin: My name is Bow Wow.

    Nev: Your name is not Bow Wow.  What’s your name.

D-Pimpin: Shad Moss.

Did you all watch this episode?  It was incredible.  Part-time model/McDonald’s cashier thinks that Bow Wow is in love with her after a Facebook message response.  She also receives $10,000 which is how she knows it’s real.

D-Pimpin is a struggle rapper/mooch who gets money from her “mixtape” and uses a lambskin dildo to trick unsuspecting straight women.

It is all so AMAZING!

Verdict: Why not?

You know, I went into this thinking that the Bow Wow verdict would be a huge no, but honestly, I like Bow Wow.

Sure he hasn’t had any chart success recently, but he’s managed to get himself attached to the Fast & Furious franchise, keep a steady pay check, and he has some tunes that I jam to.  He hit some financial troubles but so did everyone associated with Jermaine Dupri.  Even Jermaine Dupri.  I just hope Dem Franchise Boyz are set.

So you know, team Bow Wow.  Let’s end with another sassy video clip from the Bow Wow/Omarion days.

On Her Grown Woman!

She’s free!

Class- & Trash-approved white queen, Jojo, has won her case and freed herself from the clutches Gladys Knight’s ex-husband and his awful label.  This is a man who:

A) Almost let Wheelchair Jimmy produce an Aaliyah-biopic;

B) Who kept Jojo from promoting flawless body rolling anthem, Demonstrate; and,

C) Planned to release old vocals without the involvement of Missy’s tracksuits and Timbaland’s Weeble-shaped body.

He can NOT be trusted.
We here at Class & Trash have loved Jojo since she was a precocious tot telling her middle school boo-thing to leave the lunch table.  But as an adult, Jojo’s sickening lower register, incredible control, and body party jams are even more appealing.

Since we’re celebrating The Emancipation of Jojo today, I thought I would share some of our favorite Jojo songs and performances.

Leave (Get Out)

Too Little, Too Late

Weak

What’s My Name

Marvin’s Room

Demonstrate

In The Dark

Also, Trash has a sentimental favorite in “Get It Poppin'” that I’m including because it’s a bop.

Don’t like it?  Stay mad.

We can’t wait to hear what she has in store!  Let us know in the comments section below or on Twitter @ClassNTrashShow what your favorite Jojo songs are.
