Bow Wow and Jermaine Dupri Celebrate Black History With The Source

This month, superstar rapper and actor Bow Wow made his first ever appearance on the cover of the world renowned hip hop culture magazine, The Source. He along with his mentor, music mogul and Grammy Award winning super producer, Jermaine Dupri are featured in the issue, which will be on newsstands everywhere throughout February.

Although only 21, Bow Wow has been recording professionally for almost ten years and is prepping for the release of his seventh album, New Jack City II, on March 31st. He was excited when the Source offered him and JD the cover and thinks this is a great platform to launch his new CD from. “I’ve never been on the cover of the Source before, but I feel this is a great time to do it because I teamed back up with JD for this project and New Jack City II really shows my growth as an artist and the transitions I’ve made since my last album,” says Bow Wow. “The Source is such a respected magazine and I appreciate them giving me the opportunity to introduce my new music and what is going to be a new phase in my career to the world.”

The cover shot and inside images show Bow Wow and Jermaine wearing retro clothing reminiscent of the styles seen in the classic 90’s film, New Jack City. This nostalgic theme is fitting because the article delves into the long history that Bow Wow and Jermaine share, the factors that caused them to go their separate ways and what ultimately brought them back together for New Jack City II. This issue is also their Black History Month issue and includes features which chronicle the African American experience in America and analyze the places that Hip Hop and The Source magazine have in that history.
