Birdman Discusses Bow Wow's New Role As Host of 106 & Park
(AllHipHop News) Cash Money Records CEO Bryan "Birdman" Williams weighed in on Bow Wow's new job as host of BET's hit countdown series "106 & Park."
Bow Wow, who is an artist or Cash Money Records, was named host of the countdown series earlier today (October 1), replacing former hosts Rocsi Diaz and Terrence J.
The move is a natural one for Bow Wow, who has more appearances than any other artist, in the program's 12-year history.
"Bow has this in the bag! In addition to being a great rapper, he is a natural personality with great star power and style," Bryan "Birdman" Williams told AllHipHop.com. "He brings a new air to the network and my brother 'Slim' and I couldn't be more proud. This is another great example of YMCMB expanding our presence in the television and film world."
Bow Wow will host the show with new personalities Ms. Mykie, Paigon, and Shorty Da Prince.
"I'm all about branding myself not just in music—but on TV and in movies," Bow Wow said. "Everyone always wanted to compare me to the Fresh Prince, well now they can call me The Fresh Prince of 106 & Park. Get ready for a whole new world."
Bow Wow, who has sold over 12 million records throughout his career, is slated to drop his new album Underrated on Cash Money Records in the near future.
