Bow Wow and Soulja Boy surprised everyone when they announced they were collaborating on a new joint mixtape titled Ignorant Shit. On Tuesday, the duo actually released the project. The 11 track tape boasts all original new tracks with a sole feature from Rich the Kid on "All About Paper."
Ignorant Shit arrives eight years after the pair teamed up on "Marco Polo" in 2008, which was meant to appear on Bow Wow's New Jack City II album, but it was left out of the original release after the two got into their very public beef. The track was later included on the deluxe edition and the rappers obviously worked through their differences since then.
Bow Wow has since announced his retirement from rap music, which he told fans he plans to do before his 30th birthday in March of 2017. Fans are still expecting him to release his Snoop Dogg-produced album, Nylth, as well as his long-awaited project, Underrated, before retirement.
For now, the project that no one seemingly asked for is here and Twitter is going off with mixed results. Some are taking in the nostalgia of it all nothing that this joint project is "the best idea of 2007." Others are going at it, laughing off the idea and the surprising release. Still, some people seem to be enjoying the project. "Say y'all don't laugh at me but....that Soulja boy and bow wow tape not that bad lol," one Twitter user wrote. "So far this Soulja Boy & Bow Wow is actually good..." another fan tweeted. Dip into the project as well as the split Twitter reactions below.
