Bow Wow may have stepped back from music, but he believes his years and accomplishments in the rap game are worthy of a Hall of Fame honor. On Tuesday (Dec. 14), the Columbus native was asked whether he thinks he deserves to be in a Hall of Fame, and he frankly responded, “Absolutely.” He went on to declare that he should be honored at the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards.

“BET should honor me next year at the Hip Hop Awards,” he tweeted in response to a fan’s inquiry. “I dont want them to wait til I’m 44 years old. Plus I’ll be the youngest artist in history to get that award ever.”

As fans publicly contemplated whether it was too “soon” for Bow’s Hall of Fame induction, the emcee argued that he’s put in enough time to be considered for the distinction.

“Go look up my stats and see what I’ve done my whole career… and u tell me I why it cant be sooner,” he told one Twitter user. In another tweet, he arrogantly claimed that he’s a “vet.”

“I’m like nothing you will ever see,” Bow Wow added. “I put in 22 years already. I’m 34. 24 years of a career is like most of the greats. I started young. I deserve mine broski. Needs that.”

Throughout the course of Bow Wow’s music career, he released six studio albums and a few mixtapes, stealing awards and making Billboard charts along the way. The popularity he attained during his peak was most notably displayed on BET’s “106 & Park.”  Several of the rapper’s visuals spent more than 65 days in the No.1 spot and were retired from the countdown. He eventually retired the most music videos in the show’s history, earning him the title of Mr. 106 and Park.
