Jermaine Dupri has just signed 13-year-old Atlanta hip-hop artist DJ DJ to his So So Def label. She started rapping at the age of 9 and recorded his first song, “Gotta Get Mine.”

“It was 10 years from the time I signed Kriss Kross ‘til I signed Bow Wow,” Dupri said. “And exactly 10 years from the time I signed Bow to DJ DJ.”


TMZ reports Bow Wow finally gave a $90,000 check to the court to avoid from being arrested for a bill the he never paid.

It’s unclear if the arrest order has been lifted but at least it is paid!

Musiq is taking a break from the music business for a while…according to sources he wants to focus more on writing and producing.

“I think I want to take a step back a little bit as an artist,” Musiq confirmed in an interview Monday.

This nothing new because Musiq has begun writing and producing for other artists  for a while now (that is where the money is) including Chrisette Michele and Bow Wow.

“I’m not going to stop performing or being an artist. I do enjoy singing and all of that, but it takes away from being creative. At least with being a writer-producer you can constantly create and make music and things like that,” says Musiq Soulchild.

Bow Wow has been ordered to be arrested, reports TMZ.

He was ordered in 2009 to pay almost $100,000 to a tour bus company for allegedly not paying his bill.

Bow Wow was supposed to produce documents in his home state regarding the lawsuit and never did. Now the rapper is held in contempt.

Drake has a new boo…video vixen Dollicia Bryan.

She’s dated Jamie Foxx, Bow Wow and Hill Harper, so it’s safe to say she might just be a groupie!

A rep for the rapper says:

“Yes, Drake & Dollicia are dating. They’re both in L.A. right now spending the Holidays together.”


Bow Wow owes almost six figures in back taxes, this according to TMZ.

A tax lien filed in Florida by the federal government says Bow Wow, real name Shad Gregory Moss, owes the government $91,105.61 for unpaid taxes from the year 2006.

Bow Wow has written another heartfelt message to his baby daughter Shai, in which he apologizes for having to leave her to go on tour with Chris Brown.

This will be the first time where ill be on tour since having my daughter. As a professional i know its my job to travel be gone for months out of the year, but this time ill be away from my baby girl. Its crazy because she dont know what daddy do yet… im prepared for the millions of questions she’s going to ask me. One of my favorite movies is “Walk Hard” i love it because i shared so many of the same things he was going through. He was missing birthdays, all kinds of things that as a parent you dont and just cant miss.

Talk about the life of a rolling stone. I know all this is gonna come with the territory. It is a sacrifice, because yall (My fans) need me just like she does. If i dont tour 4 to 5 months out of the year or go do a movie for 3 months then how can she do all the things she wants to do in life. Its hard i cant lie. I’ve already missed some important things because of my job already. When she get about 4 and tells me “Daddy dont leave yet” ima be like “ooohhhhhh noooooo” “look at them lil green eyes” she’s gonna get me every time hahaha.

I just want my daughter to know that im out here grinding. Working harder then ever because im still young and tomorrow ain’t promised. Everything i do i do it for her. Even if i go a month with out seeing her because im on the road or in another country, its for her and her future. When i was younger i would see my Dj and Road manager always on the phone arguing to their wives because they could not understand.

I’ll admit this is tough on any woman. Understand this game is no 9 to 5. My job requires ALOT and at any given time things change. My job is 24 hours, i might be daddy to her but im Bow Wow the rapper the actor to the world. Just know when daddy get off tour we going to Disney.. cuz even ima need a break. HAHAHA

I’ve been working so hard on this album and its all because of her. She has matured me as a man, made me look at life different, and realize whats important. I used to be stuck on jewelry cars and all dat bullshit. NOW.. ima different person. feel like a new artist. Helped me and my moms communicate better.

When i leave to go on the F.A.M.E TOUR Shai Shai and i give a kiss its not a goodbye or see ya later, its a daddy went to go get them bands im coming right back. Instead of me leaving with a brief case, it will be a mic in one hand and a script in the other. I Love you Shai

P.S. too bad you too young to come to the shows. Would be dope for you to see daddy kill live on stage. But hopefully god will let me continue to do this at the pace im doing it at now and there will be plenty of tours for you to come on. Daddy gotta go, but when its over your the first person im coming too.
