Bow Wow Reveals Business Plans, Shows Love to Hometown

 With his latest album The Price of Fame recently hitting stores (Dec. 19), rapper Bow Wow is ending the year on a strong note.

The rapper is taking his success outside of the rap arena with a new sneaker store and fast food franchise.

"I’m franchising my own McDonald’s, I’m thinking about getting a little share in the Atlanta Hawks, and I co-own a sneaker store — Prestigious [in Atlanta]," the rapper told the Columbus Dispatch. "I just thought, "Why not make money on stuff that I love? "

Bow Wow, a Reynoldsburg, Ohio native, paid a visit to his hometown today (Dec. 28), as he talked to youth at Barnett Recreation Center and participated in the Winter Basketball Invitational.

The lyricist coached one of the teams against the opposing squad, which was coached by Columbus mayor Michael B. Coleman.

The Price of Fame is in stores now.
