The stars came out for the BET Awards on Sunday (June 25), including Bow Wow, who was asked for his thoughts on no hip-hop songs or albums reaching the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 or Billboard 200 charts in 2023.

Bow Wow didn't hold back his thoughts, as he stated that today's "trash a** music" is to blame. He added that everything sounds alike, is repetitive, and Bow Wow thinks there's no complexity in the music being released right now.

Bow Wow predicted that hip-hop would make a shift "back to the real s***," and he added that he thinks the future of rap will be based on real talent. He then added that Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and J. Cole stand out, but you can hear his full argument above.
