Bow Wow And Soulja Boy Claim Their Joint Mixtape Is The New Watch The Throne

Bold claim

It is the year 2016, and Bow Wow and Soulja Boy have just dropped a joint mixtape. What a time to be alive.

Ignorant Shit boasts 11 fresh tracks, including a sole feature from Rich The Kid. The collaborative project comes eight years after Bow Wow and Soulja Boy’s “Marco Polo,” which was followed by a highly publicized beef that found them trading half-assed jabs at each other in a bunch of YouTube videos. Clearly, they’ve settled their differences.

As for the new music itself, there’s a lot of braggadocio-filled bars over trap instrumentals. Take the seven-minute title track, for instance, which finds the two rappers bragging about how “stupid rich” they are and vowing to take Kylie and Kendall Jenner to Hawaii. They even call Ignorant Shit the new Watch the Throne, which ... uh ... sure. It’s not like Watch the Throne 2 is ever happening anyway, so this may as well be our consolation prize.

For those of you going, “Wait, isn’t Bow Wow retired?!” the answer is ... almost. He announced earlier this year that he plans to retire from rap after releasing his seventh, Snoop Dogg–produced album, Nylth. So it sounds like Ignorant Shit isn’t quite his last hurrah before he hangs up the mic for good.
