Or... is this another #BowWowChallenge?
Bow Wow has said he's about to make some serious money on the back of his Internet clowning.
The 'Growing Up Hip-Hop' star revealed that he's set to spin the viral #BowWowChallenge - which kicked off as a result of Bow's fake flexing on social media - into a million-dollar TV show.
During an interview on Shade 45, the 'Like You' rapper claims to have a "new show" on the way and confirmed that shooting will commence next month.
"Crazy thing is the #BowWowChallenge TV show is REAL!" he wrote on Instagram. "I start shooting next month. I turned a f*ck up into a million dollars."
Speaking to DJ Drama, Bow recalled the moment his mother notified him that he'd gone viral. Last year, the rapper inferred he was boarding a private jet before being spotted flying economy.
"When the sh*t happened, my mom hit me first – ‘What the f*ck did you do?’ And I’m in the hotel watching the game, chilling. I’m like, ‘What’re you talking about?’"
"'You was on a plane or something, what you did?’ I was like, ‘What do you mean? I was on a plane.’ She said, ‘But nah, they’re trying to say you wasn’t on a private plane. But you never put on your caption you were on that plane.'"
Bow has a history of bending the truth online - as well as the original plane post, he's also been roasted for alleging to have a nightclub in his house, shortly after he edited himself into the original Death Row Records roster.
The rapper recently sparked panic among some fans after he posted a series of disturbing messages on social media. In one post, he wrote he wished "he never existed."
Following the posts, Bow announced the upcoming release of his new album 'Edicius', which is suicide spelled backwards. Last month, footage of Bow being physically assaulted by another rapper surfaced online.
