Lil Mama Jokes About How She and Bow Wow Look Alike
After being the inspiration behind a couple of unforgiving viral meme campaigns, it is good to know that Lil Mama still has a sense of humor about all of it. So much so that the Harlem rapper recently made a joke at her own expense on Instagram.
There has been a long-running joke about how Lil Mama and Bow Wow look very much alike. The bulk of the memes started a couple years back when they both appeared side-by-side in a photo at a protest for the police killing of Mike Brown. The memes about their facial similarities started rolling in from there.
Earlier today, Lil Mama had a little fun with the comparisons on Instagram, posting a shirtless picture of Bow Wow and captioning the photo, "Just relaxing kicking my feet up and shit," followed by a crying laughing emoji.
Back in January, she dropped a song called "Memes" where she addressed how she was the topic discussion. She also spoke on the meme onslaught saying, “I was able to relate to the comedy around it. I wasn’t that deep into it at the moment. When you see something like that you take it with a grain of salt.”
Mama previously talked about the Bow Wow comparisons in an interview with The Breakfast Club. “Bow Wow has over 20 years of success in this business,” she said. “You can’t offend me by comparing me to somebody who’s great and handsome. So if you saying we look good, then I’m cool.”
