Bow Wow: Will Smith Was A Gimmick Rapper

Bow Wow is taking a shot at Will Smith in the new issue of XXL magazine. “But to me, honestly, Will wasn’t like a real rapper,” Bow Wow said of the Oscar nominated actor. “He was more like a gimmick. Then he zapped in to get a TV show, and it was on and poppin’. Then after that he was in Hollywood. So things came easy for him. With me, I’m a rapper. I ain’t with the whole colorful cornball type things. That’s just not my style.”
