    To probably one of the worst movie series of all time. Yeah whatever. He’s not that great of an actor. I’m just being honest. I rather have him rapping.

    Bow Wow music career is not on life-support !
    He is releasing a mixtape on August 23rd and he will get in studio as soon as he finishes the filming of Madea movie.

    Im very happy for him, and even more when you see him so motivated on his ustreams !

    @ciaradabess

    What happened to the Ciara movie “Mama I want to sing?” Oh Ok.

    Tyler Perry movies always do well at the box office and you know that, quit the hating..& if you don’t know it, research the box office gross, he always make usually double the amount to what he used to make the film.

    PEOPLE CAN SAY WHAT THEY WANT ABOUT TYLER PERRY MOVIES.

    60 MINS ALREADY CLOCKED THE TEA BY SAYING THEY MADE OVER 400 MILLION.

    SO HATERS STAY MAD.

  10. CIARADABESS August 7, 2010

    Actually Ciara dumped him because he cheated on her. But that’s not the reason I said that. I like bow wow. I just don’t like him as an actor, i prefer him as a rapper 😛

  11. rated x August 7, 2010

    Im all for a black man on his grind and ish, like tyler perry with all his movies making millions and ish.. but another madea movie?/???????

    SHOULDA BEEN IN FLOPZILLA.

    Congrats to Bow Wow. Tyler Perry’s movies are enjoyable although not really great to me. But that’s a huge audience especially because it’s a Madea film. Bow Wow has proven talented on screen with the underrated “Roll Bounce” . I look forward to “Lottery Ticket” too. I’m proud of the lane his career is taking. He’s stil making music and starring in films. Freakin “Lottery Ticket” posters are EVERYWHERE

    Sam, don’t you dare mess with my boy ok?? I love him to bits and wouldn’t wanna wish any bad luck to him hence avoid referring his career being on a life support otherwise you gonna have me to deal with or shall I say I’ll give you life support…lol!

  15. ~TeAM WeeZY~ August 7, 2010

    That’s good for him. I like Bow Wow, just think he tries too hard on the “I’m a real rapper who’s been through stuff, yet I started rapping at age 13” which can sometimes translate into LAME but whatever.

    I know many people may think I’m crazy, but Bow is actually an underrated rapper, or should I say lyricist. He’s pretty solid in the lyrical department (aside from his first two albums being written by JD and Da Brat). I think he’s just as good of an actor as he is a rapper. Nothing extremely special about neither, but great at both IMO.

    I actually like Madea movies. My favs are the “Why Did I get Married” movies, though.

    And *DEAD* @ the Ciara stan talking about a Madea movie, when Ciara would probably give her soul to be in one right now!

  16. CIARADABESS August 7, 2010

    Ciara si not desperate she’s fine with what she has now and that’s what is beautiful about her. While she would ‘tn mind more success (who doesn’t) she’s fine with what she has. she doesn’t let fame get through her head so fall back haters.

  17. Quiana August 7, 2010

    Wow that’s a good thing he did say he wanted to be the next will smith. I think that bow wow needs more acting though if he wants to be the next will smith.

  18. kevin August 7, 2010

    Humm…wonder if he had to audition with this “shirt off” ala The Boondocks, lol.

  19. Veebz August 8, 2010

    I think Bow Wow is a good rapper but people give him such a hard time!
    But someing about that movie doesn’t sit right with me, don’t know why

  20. Lonny August 8, 2010

    Yes, I agree Bow Wow is underrated as a rapper. They like to put him in a category with Soulja Boy, but Soulja Boy has an off rhythm delivery…no real flow. His lyrics have little content . Bow Wow has lines and metaphors and he has a fast delivery at times which is common to mid west native rappers.

  21. UmYa August 8, 2010

    Still trying to be relevant I see.

  22. EXPOSED August 8, 2010

    CMON, NOW… LOL. TYLER PERRY AINT EXACTLY OSCAR MATERIAL. S*** AIMED AT BLACK PEEPS WHO OTHERWISE COULDNT GET INTO WHITE MADE FILMS. THE “BET” OF THE FILM WORLD.

  23. S*** August 8, 2010

    Hes basically gonna be playing the exact same person he played in “Johnson’s family Vacation”, basically. Good for him. IDC

  24. WHITEJESUS August 8, 2010

    that is gonna be a gaaaaaaaaaay movie set.

  25. Robier August 8, 2010

    Tyler will finally have Bow Wow lol sprawled out like a thnxgiving turkey ready to EAT.

  26. Talisa J August 8, 2010

    CIARADABESS, sit down.

  27. Jwill August 8, 2010

    For all you people talking bad about Tyler Perry and his films,
    why don’t you go to film school, and start making some films yourself .
    But, until that magical mystical time, you should just shut the hell up and
    just be happy that there is somebody out there giving black people
    a chance to work in films and television. Black people can truly be
    crabs in a bucket.

  28. L.L August 9, 2010

    I haven’t seen the movie yet but iam happy for Bow Wow and I enjoy watching all Tyler P movies. To the haters there’s a message in all of Tyler movies if you don’t get it or u don’t like it go to another movie . I think this is great and hope the two will continue to make more best wishes to both. AL
