Bow Wow, Im Better Than You

Bow Wow has been putting in work recently. As he preps his album Underrated for a December release, the Ohio-bred rhymer has been regularly leaking songs, often accompanying them with a video just a few days later, and dropped Greenligh 4 in August. Now, just over a month removed from that release, Wizzle returns with Im Better Than You.

The project kicks off right, with “Heaven,” as an animated Bow opens up about issues ranging from his relationship with his father to grappling with his public perception: “Can I just make my money in peace without y’all hatin’/Why is it so important to find out who I’m dating?/So what, I smoke weed/Just please, let me be me/I’m not that nigga you read about or see on TV.”

From here, though, the YMCMB spitter falters, allowing the current of typical topics to carry him effortlessly downstream. Cuts like “I Love Pussy,” “Mary Jane,” “Lame,” and “They Aint Got Shit On Me” are as unimaginative as their titles. Sure, these are stale subjects that most rappers touch on, but Bow Wow offers a particularly stenciled rendition of these worn out topics that seem to drone on for rap listeners these days.

Noticeably shorter than G4 (18 songs), Im Better Than You (11 tracks) comes off more like a collection of leftovers from that last project than something planned to be packaged together. Though he scarcely does it here, Bow Wow has shown that he’s capable of curving the lines on the box within people have placed him, and will continue to attempt to do so with the upcoming Underrated. —Adam Fleischer

    MOST OF THEM YOUNG MONEY NIGGAS NEED TO JUST STOP IT, ESPECIALLY BOW WOW!!! NONE OF THEM NIGGAS CAN RAP NOR DO THEY WRITE THEY OWN RAPS. THE ONLY ONES THAT WAS ACTUALLY DOING SOMETHING WAS NICKI AND DRAKE AND NICKI WENT *WHITE GIRL POP STAR* AND DRAKE DISAPPEARED RIGHT BEFORE OUR EYES. WAYNE CAN’T EVEN RAP FOR REAL,HE DON’T WRITE HIS OWN SHIT AND HE CAN’T EVEN FREESTYLE SO WHAT THAT TELL YOU + THEM NIGGAS IS IGNORANT AND DISRESPECTFUL TO US MAY-BE “FANS” AND WOMEN.

    REFUSE TO GIVE ANY OF THESE NIGGAS A CENT OF MY MONEY.

    YMCMB FELL OFF WHEN WAYNE SIGNED THIS NIGGA.

    SMH…

  • Mr.17.%

    This mixtapes sounds like leftovers from G4 mixtape. In all, the tape was weak. Had 2 or 3 jams but nothing more. Wrong title for the mixtape too. Im not hating on dude because the Greenlight tapes has been his best work since he was a kid.

  • Young23

    Well at least he can act…

  • Anoymous

    Yeah, i agree with each and every comments. That Bow Wow has fallen. You know, he’s like a book in a bible the great he as fallen. His time is up. For a man who gets on twitter begging for a movie part??? are you serious??? yeah we all know that his time is up. As far as his music concern even people around his age can’t stand him anymore. Trust me they know all about his lies, schemes and B.S. Only Lames, hoes, teenies, and uneducated masses buys his stuff and he knows it. He knows that Real hip hop heads like me don’t take him seriously. As far as his new album concern it might sell. Have you guys seen that wack song #Sweat, Hip Hop got him at #4 on Itunes. I’m sure Mr. Birdman got something to do with it. I’m sure he going help him again with #Underrated. I’ll say it’s going to sell between 25 to 55k in the first week but still, he’s finished in my book. Drake is my favorite rapper now.
