Bow Wow signs with Cash Money
Parted ways with Columbia Records earlier this year
NEW YORK -- Bow Wow is officially out of retirement.
After announcing his departure from the music game to focus on his burgeoning acting career, the rapper tweeted Monday that he's now a member of Cash Money Records stable of artists.
"It's official, I'm a Cash Money Millionaire," Bow Wow, who had parted ways with longtime label Columbia Records earlier this year, told his thousands of followers on Twitter.
In previous postings, he explained he was deciding between two recording options: signing to T.I.'s Grand Hustle camp through Atlantic Records or relaunching So So Def with longtime mentor/producer Jermaine Dupri.
Bow Wow's last album, "New Jack City II," for which he reunited with Dupri, sold a meek 73,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
