Bow Wow, real name, Shad Moss has revealed he got schooled by T.I on how to be a man with respect and humility after he let fame get into his head during his Lil Bow Wow days and asked the older rapper to fetch him a can of soda.
He recalled, “True s**t. I said, ‘Aye, aye, can you get me a Sprite?’ Like you know, like he’s a runner. I’m like, K.P. got this guy writing my records, helping me do things in the studio, he’s supposed to be like my new Jermaine.”
Bow Wow continued, “I’m super more famous than T.I. at this point. Hella more famous. I’m like, ‘Yo, while I’m writing, you get me a Sprite?’ Man, T.I.P. looked at me, and that was the day I had to start growing up.”
The 29-year-old then narrated T.I’s expression at his disrespectful request, “T.I.P. looked at me and that motherf**ker said, ‘Hey check this out here, pimp. I’ma tell you something right now. I don’t know what y’all do over there, but over here, you get your own godd**n sodas around here. I’ma teach you how to be a motherf**king man.’”
Walking down memory lane did good for Bow Wow as he never forgot the lesson T.I taught him.
Thanks to Tip, the Ohio native learnt respect and humility in one swipe.
