An unsettling video hit the ’Net last week, showing notorious hip-hop vixen, Kat Stacks, being assaulted by two unknown males. After slapping Stacks, one man shouted out, “Apologize to Fab,” while the other added, “And Bow Wow,” making people believe the two rap stars were involved. XXLMag.com recently caught up with Bow Wow to set the record straight on the attack.
According to the newly signed Cash Money rapper, he had nothing to do with the incident and does not know who the assailants are. “Of course I had no involvement with it,” he said. “It’s so far fetched for me. Come on, man, everybody knows I make records for girls,“ he added, alluding to the fact that he’s not known for his gangsta image.
To further explain his detachment, Bow made a correlation to basketball. “You gotta look at it like this,” he said. “Skip Bayless talks terrible about Lebron…and I’m sure the city of Cleveland knows about Skip being all hot on him. Skip wouldn’t go to Cleveland, as bad as he talks about Lebron. And a Cavaliers fan threw a basketball at Skip; is you really gonna blame Lebron James for it? Lebron’s probably in his mansion chillin’ with his girl and his kids, he don’t know that fan. But that fan loves Lebron James. So you talk about him, in his city, and something happens, you can’t blame Lebron. So therefore you can’t blame me. The only thing you can associate me with is that somebody said my name.”
“I’m not an evil person,” he continued. “I don’t condone violence. That’s just the type of person I am. I just feel like, if anything, positivity is always the way out. So I think that maybe if she humbles herself a lil more and be positive and go about things differently, then hopefully she’ll be alright…but that’s not my style. I don’t put hits on people, I’m in the music business…if I wanted to fight, I’d be in the MMA.”
Bow Wow will be at the VH1 Hip Hop Honors tonight, honoring the pioneers of Southern rap music. —Elan Mancini with reporting by Rob Markman
