Similar to how Wayne doled out advice to Bow, the young rapper said he looks out for another member of the extended Young Money/ Cash Money collective: Nicki Minaj. Bow Wow, who stars in the comedy “Lottery Ticket,” almost scored the hip-hop diva a role in the summer flick.
“To be honest, Nicki was close to being [the character] ‘Nikki’ in the movie. I called Nicki and said, ‘Yo, I think you should audition for this role.’ ” Unfortunately, Bow’s bid to get Minaj some screen time was unsuccessful: The part eventually went to R&B vixen Teairra Mari. “I thought [Minaj] did good, but unfortunately you know how things don’t work out.”
Fans won’t catch Minaj on the big screen in “Lottery Ticket” but Bow Wow said a big tour featuring Weezy’s hitmaking squad will go down once Wayne comes home.
“When he gets out, we definitely plan on this Young Money/ Cash Money tour,” Bow said. “[The tour will feature] myself, Nicki, Drizzy, Wayne and the whole entire family.”
