[twitter=bowwow]Bow Wow[/twitter] is tired of getting the credit that he feels he is due. In a recent interview he explains why he feels he is cut from that Jay-Z/Eminem cloth.

“I feel like a lot of dudes who get recognition in the game, I’ve been doing it longer than them and I think people are stuck in the right now, that they forget about the past and that’s one thing that I don’t do,” Bow Wow said. “That’s a discredit to somebody’s past and especially their numbers, because like [Jay-Z] said: ‘They don’t lie, stats don’t lie.’ I just get tired of that sometimes, when you work so hard and you’re passionate about what you do, you want to get acknowledged for it. Other than Eminem and Jay-Z, I can’t tell you another rapper who has sold out Madison Square Garden five times, besides me! I’m in that bracket, but people won’t say that because they are so caught up with the past and Lil’ Bow Wow and are not focused on the current.”

Is there any validity to Bow’s comments?
