Bow Wow didn’t know he had an impact on DMX’s song “Party Up”
Bow Wow made his acting debut in the 2002 film, Like Mike, while he was still a child. At some point in the movie, Bow Wow and actor Morris Chestnut were reciting DMX’s hit record “Party Up.”
During an interview with HipHopDx this week, Wow revealed that he wasn’t aware of his impact on the record until X died in 2020.
“I never knew that people’s first time hearing ‘Party Up’ was my movie, which was crazy,” Wow explained. “I didn’t notice that Like Mike did that for that record until he passed away. Because that record is so massive, it’s so big. It might be DMX’s biggest record of his career.
He added, “So being that the record was already a monster hit, that’s why we put it in the movie. It’s like, ‘Y’all thought this was new?’ It’s a classic. Are you fuckin’ kinding me? You woulda never heard this DMX record, like where have you been?’”
