Bow Wow fans will have to wait a little longer to get their paws on his new album. The rapper’s Cash Money debut Underrated has been delayed from November to December.
The project, originally slated for a November 1 release, is now scheduled to arrive on December 6.
“I’m happy to announce the last and final release date on Underrated. New date will be DECEMBER 6th,” Bow Wow wrote on his blog.
He explained the reason behind the setback. “Reason being is mixing plus clearances for the records. Typical (Business Shit) no biggie,” he assured his fans. “This album is more important to me than anything. For the last 2 years i have been working on this album since the day i signed. Even while working on Lottery Ticket and Madea’s Big Happy Family. I want this to be perfect not just for myself but for yall as well. No im not tryna build hype i believe the hype will build as we get closer to December and if you ask me the hype is already building.”
The extra time will allow him to release two singles and additional videos, including ones off his mixtape Greenlight 4. “When you going into a store and buy my shit, i want to make sure its worth your dollar,” he said. “This is my van gogh my basquiat. Its my art. I now have the time to give yall way more material and videos than before. Because of the distance between now and December, i’ll have one of the biggest album roll outs in my career.”
He has recruited an all-star lineup of guests for Underrated including Chris Brown, Game, Snoop Dogg, Fabolous, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, and Lil Wayne, who appears on the first single.
