Bow Wow has become one sentimental dude ever since the birth of his daughter Shai. The rapper recently wrote a heartfelt blog dedicated to both his fans and baby girl. In the blog post, which is titled ‘Letter To My Fans: Daddy Is A Rolling Stone,’ Bow Wow explains how fatherhood has changed his life and why he’s been grinding so hard on his upcoming album, Underrated. It took a while for Bow Wow to acknowledge his daughter publicly, but now he seems to have gotten his act together finally.
Check out the blog post, in its entirety, below.
This will be the first time where ill be on tour since having my daughter. As a professional i know its my job to travel be gone for months out of the year, but this time ill be away from my baby girl. Its crazy because she dont know what daddy do yet… im prepared for the millions of questions she’s going to ask me. One of my favorite movies is “Walk Hard” i love it because i shared so many of the same things he was going through. He was missing birthdays, all kinds of things that as a parent you dont and just cant miss.
Talk about the life of a rolling stone. I know all this is gonna come with the territory. It is a sacrifice, because yall (My fans) need me just like she does. If i dont tour 4 to 5 months out of the year or go do a movie for 3 months then how can she do all the things she wants to do in life. Its hard i cant lie. I’ve already missed some important things because of my job already. When she get about 4 and tells me “Daddy dont leave yet” ima be like “ooohhhhhh noooooo” “look at them lil green eyes” she’s gonna get me every time hahaha. I just want my daughter to know that im out here grinding. Working harder then ever because im still young and tomorrow ain’t promised. Everything i do i do it for her. Even if i go a month with out seeing her because im on the road or in another country, its for her and her future. When i was younger i would see my Dj and Road manager always on the phone arguing to their wives because they could not understand. I’ll admit this is tough on any woman.
Understand this game is no 9 to 5. My job requires ALOT and at any given time things change. My job is 24 hours, i might be daddy to her but im Bow Wow the rapper the actor to the world. Just know when daddy get off tour we going to Disney.. cuz even ima need a break. HAHAHA I’ve been working so hard on this album and its all because of her. She has matured me as a man, made me look at life different, and realize whats important. I used to be stuck on jewelry cars and all dat bullshit. NOW.. ima different person. feel like a new artist . Helped me and my moms communicate better. When i leave to go on the F.A.M.E TOUR Shai Shai and i give a kiss its not a goodbye or see ya later, its a daddy went to go get them bands im coming right back. Instead of me leaving with a brief case, it will be a mic in one hand and a script in the other. I Love you Shai
P.S. too bad you too young to come to the shows. Would be dope for you to see daddy kill live on stage. But hopefully god will let me continue to do this at the pace im doing it at now and there will be plenty of tours for you to come on. Daddy gotta go, but when its over your the first person im coming too.
Love Daddy Wizzle
