When it comes to the Lil Wayne vs. Jay-Z beef Bow Wow is just like any other hip hop fan, he'd like to see the two rap titans launch an all out verbal assault on each other.
All we have seen so far are occasional subliminal shots thrown at each other by Wayne and Hov. The latest being Wayne's threat to kidnap Beyonce on the song "It's Good" off of 'Tha Carter IV.'
In a new interview with XXL, Bow Wow explains his reasoning for wanting to see the battle.
“From the fans’ perspective, I look at it as this is something they want,” Bow said. “Why not? Battle rapping has been going on in hip-hop since it was created. This is something that’s been in our sport for years. Any time you rap, especially for guys, we already feel like we the best, anyway. ‘My car better than yours, my girl finer than yours.’ So, guys, we already competitive as it is. But in this sport, or any type of field where there’s a lot of people that do what you do, you’re going to want to be the best.”
Although being signed to Cash Money Records would seem to make Bow somewhat biased as to who he would be pulling for if the beef gets turned up. He insists he just wants to see the competition.
“We see the Patriots going at the Giants,” he said. ”We seen two good teams always go at each other, so how come two great rappers can't go at each other? You have two giants going at each other. To me it’s all competitive, it’s a form of art, it’s rap, it’s something we seen before. But, if you’re gonna do it, then, do it.”
