his latest album The Price of Fame recently hitting stores (Dec. 19), rapper
Bow Wow is ending the year on a strong note. The
rapper is taking his success outside of the rap arena with a new sneaker store
and fast food franchise. "I’m
franchising my own McDonald’s, I’m thinking about getting a little share
in the Atlanta Hawks, and I co-own a sneaker store — Prestigious [in Atlanta],"
the rapper told the Columbus Dispatch. "I just thought, "Why
not make money on stuff that I love? " Bow
Wow, a Reynoldsburg, Ohio native, paid a visit to his hometown today (Dec. 28),
as he talked to youth at Barnett Recreation Center and participated in the Winter
Basketball Invitational. The
lyricist coached one of the teams against the opposing squad, which was coached
by Columbus mayor Michael B. Coleman. The
Price of Fame is in stores now.
