Famous Entertainer Broke: Pretends to Take Private Jet: Spotted on Commercial Airline
The age old story of leftists. Pretend to be what they are not. As rapper Biggie smalls used to say, “Mo money mo problems.”
However, in the rap world, that’s not necessarily true. Take Shad Moss, aka Bow Wow, for example.
He got caught taking a picture of a private jet and posting it on Instagram. Bow Wow alerted his audience that he was on his way to New York to film his new reality show. He alluded that he was taking the private jet. Because he’s royalty, unlike the peons who may follow his “work.”
Sounds pretty cool, right? Because, that’s what we are to expect of our idols. That was the allure of Barack Obama. That he was more than what he was.
In the case of Bow Wow, his lie was exposed when a passenger on a commercial flight took a picture of him sitting a few seats in front of him. Yes, Bow Wow the “big baller” was flying commercial. He was no different than his fans; even puts his pants on one leg at a time.
The passenger quickly posted the picture to Twitter saying,
“so this guy lil bow wow is on my flight to NY. But on Instagram he posted a picture of a private jet captioned “traveling to NY today” smh,’
Busted! Bow wow immediately received backlash.
So the mogul wannabe felt the need to front.
What? Can’t handle being a mere mortal?
Consider that Bow Wow, former Lil Bow Wow grew up in the limelight.
with money and in the limelight. You think by the time he is solidly in his 20s, he would have stopped fronting about being a big baller. But he just can’t help it. He’s been trained to deceive the public. That’s what rappers do. They pretend to have made it, as they try to make it. Then, when they get a taste of success, they blow it, and end up broke in short order.
There are many rappers in Bow Wow’s shoes.
50 Cent filed bankruptcy a few years ago. He later claimed that he really wasn’t broke, but only did it to get out of paying a defamation lawsuit.
More recently Nelly admitted that he is broke. Fat Joe pled guilty to tax evasion in 2012, and allegedly owed over $3 million to the government; Ja Rule, who also owes 1 million to the government.
As for Bow Wow’s financial issues, on March 28, 2012, Bow Wow was ordered by a court to pay $3,000 a month in child support. Yes, the “dawg” now had at least one pup in his own litter.
Later, on October 2, 2012, Bow Wow claimed he was broke. He defined broke as only making $4,000 dollars a month. Further, he claimed to possess only $1,500 in his checking account. The next day, however, Bow Wow signed a deal with BET to co-host 106 & Park in a fairly lucrative deal.
Bow Wow would comment on his ruse to limit his child support:
“One thing about me, I’m a smart guy. Very smart. Things that I do, are for reasons. Things that I don’t do are for reasons. So for myself, I’m comfortable, very comfortable. For me, it’s all about the work. But as far as rumors, those are people’s opinions — until you see me on a corner with a cardboard box saying I’ll tap dance for food or canned goods, then you can say that [I’m broke].”
In other words, Bow Wow is broke when he wants to be?
And if the picture with somebody else’s jet is an indication, he’s rich when he wants to be.
Consider for a moment that a young man with his background and success can’t find enough comfort in it. At the age of 30, this man still believes he needs to make people believe he’s wealthy, rather than just accepting who he is.
And you wonder why so many ghetto versions of Bow Wow exist. Why they crave money and things that are not theirs?
