Bow Wow is in the process of cleaning up his finances.
According to TMZ, a Georgia court ruled in favor of the limousine company that sued the rapper for not paying his bill. Bow has been ordered to pay $3,594.87 in a default judgment because he never showed up in court.
The celebrity news site that the lawsuit is just one step of many in Bow’s quest to clean up his financial and legal woes. TMZ says after already paying off one lawsuit—$90,000 to settle an unpaid tour bus bill—that Bow Wow hired a new team to handle all his business.
That team’s in the process of dealing with three separate tax liens—for the years 2006, 2008 and 2010—against the Cash Money rapper.
Getting back to the music should help. Bow Wow is tentatively slated to drop his next studio album, Underrated, on June 12.
He dropped his first single, the Lil Wayne-assisted “Sweat,” off the album back in October, before unleashing “Better,” featuring T-Pain, earlier this month.
Underrated has suffered delay after delay. When Bow Wow first signed to Cash Money in 2009, the rapper and his new label announced a tentative 2010 release date. That changed to November 1, 2011 and then December 6 in trying to clear samples. June 12 has been the most recent release date, although it remains to be seen if the MC will keep that as an official date.
Underrated is tentatively scheduled to have the likes of T-Pain, Birdman, Jadakiss, Chris Brown, Busta Rhymes, Meek Mill and Machine Gun Kelly featured as guests.—Jakinder Singh
