Bow Wow Roasted By Black Twitter After Posting This Throwback Photo

These internet streets are merciless.

Published October 16, 2017

Another day, another Bow Wow controversy spreading like wildfire on the Internet.

While it would appear as though the rapper has a knack for putting himself on the chopping block with his infamous flexing or staging crazed fandom, his career actually landed him in the hot seat this go round. 

On Monday (Oct. 16), the Ohio native took to Twitter to share a throwback photo of himself featuring artists from the former Death Row artist roster. Bow's picture appears to be photoshopped as his headshot is seen floating in the signature black backdrop along with the likes of Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Suge Knight2Pac and more.

While the "Like You" rapper's nostalgia may have cost him to be dragged by Black Twitter, Bow didn't hesitate to set the record straight. Following a barrage of jokes, Bow gave the internet a history lesson on his rise to stardom. "I was on death row at 6. This was the label roster," he explained after being questioned about the authenticity of the photo. "A fan sent me the pic it brought back memories."

Bow also tweeted out of a picture of him with Snoop and Dre from 1993, which was right around the time he was reportedly discovered by the veteran rapper. Take a look at the photo in question, below. 

As history would recall, Snoop served as Bow Wow's mentor and even ushered him into the Death Row family during the early '90s. However, there is no reported evidence of Bow signing with the controversial label. After working on some of the infamous skits on Snoop's Doggystyle album, Snoop sent the young emcee back to his hometown of Columbus, Ohio. He later brought Bow back to Los Angeles, where he presented him to Jermaine Dupri, who catapulted his career as a child prodigy. 

In spite of Bow's documented ties with Snoop, a full-on roast session occurred after Twitter users caught wind of the photo. Check out the most hilarious reactions below.
