Bow Wow Vows to Give Away All His Money, Quit Music

Bow Wow is ready to throw in the towel.

In an erratic series of tweets on Monday morning (July 30), the 31-year-old rapper-actor blasted his critics with some disparaging insults, vowed to give away all his money, and threatened to quit music.

var Tynt=Tynt||[];Tynt.cmd=Tynt.cmd||[];
Tynt.cmd.push({publisherId:’c9kzpIBM0r6ik2aKlId8sQ’,

‘https’:’http’)+’://cdn.tynt.com/infeed.js’;
h=document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0];
h.parentNode.insertBefore(s,h);})();

It all started when a Twitter user accused him of cheating on his girlfriend, Kiyomi Leslie. Bow fired back, tweeting, “Bitch get the fuck off our timeline. U live in nyc! Dont be tweeting my wife that dumb ass shit. For you get your fucking block knocked off. Die slow bitch.”

The Twitter tirade continued. “Im tired of you dusty ugly BITCHES. Im not the one!” he said. “I will go to jail over mine think im fucking playing. U ugly broke dirt around the neck ass bitches. Leave US THE FUCK ALONE. and i say this with LOVE.”

But things took a turn as he threatened to leave the music industry and take a job at GameStop. “Ima quit all this shit,” said Bow in a since-deleted tweet. “Down size my home. Sale everything. And go work at gamestop. Id probably be the happiest man in the world. trade my cars in and buy a PROBE.”

As he unraveled, he also acknowledged that he may need to say his therapist. “When I land I gotta see my therapist,” he wrote.

During the Twitter rant, he also vowed to give away all his money and even sent one fan $500 via the Cash app.

Bow Wow was set to join Jermaine Dupri on the upcoming So So Def 25th Anniversary tour, but was ready to pull the plug on that as well. “I really dont want to mess up the so so def tour so im thinking about not going,” he said. “Im the one that stirs up stuff im always in the news jd nem dont need that. So if i have to falll back i will.”
