Rapper says his upcoming LP may be his last.

(June 27, 2006)

*Bow Wow ain’t been in the rap game but a minute and already he’s looking to bow out.

It was just yesterday when the youngster announced he was dropping the “Lil” from his rap moniker to signify his transition into manhood. His maturity, the rapper says, also brings with it new interests that are drawing his attention away from recording.

The star of “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift” told that Hollywood is beckoning, and his upcoming fifth album “might be the last one.”

“[If so], we’re going to go out with a bang,” he said. “It’s definitely going to be the biggest album that I’ve ever done.”

Due sometime around Halloween, the Jermaine Dupri-produced as-yet-untitled set already has a first single. 

“It features Chris Brown and it’s called ‘Shorty Like Mine,’ so that definitely could be the biggest record of my career,” he said. 

Describing the album’s style, he says: “I’m going for a more edgy, kinda mature sound. Now that I’m 19, I’m able to talk about a lot of things that I’ve experienced in my life.”

As for acting, Bow Wow says offers are “coming into the office daily so I’m reading, trying to pick the next one.  There’s actually one in negotiations right now, but they don’t want me to say. But definitely get ready to see me in at least two more movies. Last year I promised myself I’d do three movies and this ["Tokyo Drift"] is one right here.”
