Michael Vick, Bow Wow Partner For Hair Product Company WaveMasterz

By: Meaghan Ellis - February 18, 2014

Michael Vick has been quite busy these days. However, his recent work has nothing to do with a football field.

This time the famed NFL quarterback is setting his sights on a different type of business venture .

On Monday, Feb. 17, the NFL free agent took to social media with the announcement of a new business venture that he’s launched with rapper-television host Bow Wow.

The hair care product company, WaveMasterz, is still in the preliminary stages of business development, but Vick also shared a link to the company’s website.

Based on the website, which is also still in the developmental stages, the two will be distributing their own product line of hair pomades, brushes, du-rags, and skull caps.

A line of sunglasses priced at $9.99 a pair are also displayed on the site, but there are currently no purchase options available.

Vick has also taken advantage of social media, creating accounts for the company on a number of social networks. The 4-time Pro-Bowl quarterback also announced that a Twitter account had been created for the new company as well.

He has encouraged all of his fans to follow the new company for updates about the venture. The Virginia Tech alum also posted a picture of the company’s logo on a newly created Instagram account back in October.

Almost a week ago, Vick shared an evasive message via Twitter. However, after the announcement of the new company fans can probably associate the tweet with his new partnership. He spoke of the progress the business was making.

According to the official website, Vick and the New Jack City II rapper are currently planning a celebrity launch tour to begin marketing the company. However, no details about the tour have been released as of yet.

    Shame on him to use the phrase ‘Bow Wow’ ….unless he intends to donate a goodly sum of his profits to the Best Friends Animal Society who helped rehabilitate the Vick dogs that survived his wrath.

    • just me

      Really? Bow Wow is his business partners name who happens to be a rapper and that’s been his stage name since… forever… people are really way too sensitive now a days!

    • Realistic1

      “Bow Wow” is a person not a phrase. Please read the story and stop worshiping animals.

      • lord have mercy

        nobody is “worshipping” animals you dikwad ! and I believe many here would rather protect animals then even have a conversation with you.

        • realistic1

          Liar, You are having a conversation with me, As%clown. You animal worshipping heathen.

          • Rivergull

            You sports jock macho money worshipping jerk.

          • realistic1

            Take one to know one 😉

        • KD

          Yes, you are worshiping animals. I bet you haven’t expressed your concern about the slain teenager in Florida. Keep kissing those animals ass and licking them in the mouth and see where that get’s ya!

          • love4geneva

            Ghetto ethics. Killing animals makes you important!
            Cowards. Vick is a worthless pos who loves inflicting pain on defenseless creatures. And he is ignorant and hideous to look at!

      • Rivergull

        I don’t worship animals… but you seem to worship animal abusers. Would you want your daughter to marry a man who hanged dogs from trees?

        • realistic1

          If he treats her well as long as he does not not harm humans I don’t care. If you eat meat you are a hypocrite. They kill more animals and in worst ways than he did.

          • Rivergull

            That’s why I stopped eating meat 25 yrs ago !!!!

          • bob

            Good for you! now start showing that compassion for humans, especially the abused children and spouses in the world. Dogs bite people ,then people put them to sleep , but hate Vick…odd

        • kd

          Your trying to run this BS over on some sympathetic losers like yourself. Vick doesn’t owe any animal rights groups a dime. He has paid for his crime. Some people eat dogs and cats, so what! Find something more important to talk about!

      • love4geneva

        Better than worshipping garbage like vick

    • KD

      I hope he does not give a damn dime to No type Animal Society. I don’t see where his business venture should share any profit with any animal rights groups. You animal lovers don’t say shit when a Caucasian or Madonna wears a mink down to her ankles. What Vick did was past tense. Find something new to talk about more important like the recent slain teen trial in Florida. Don’t see you supporting that! That was a human, that was slain. Not some damn animal.

      • Rivergull

        Wrong on many counts, KD. I despise Madonna and the empty- headed Kardashians when they wear fur just to show off…and I fully stand on the side of Trayvon Martin (R.I.P) and Jordan Davis (R.I.P). If you check my other comments on this thread, I said I thought Dunn and Zimmerman should be in the same cell.

        • Rivergull

          And remember… the way a human treats an animal is often the way he’ll treat a woman or a child. Give me a great big strong guy covered in tattoos loving his chihuahua anytime, over an idiot who things it’s fun to watch a dog suffocate in its own blood.

      • love4geneva

        Turn the rap crap down and you won’t get killed. Get a job and take responsibility for your life. Stop making excuses,taking handouts

  • Steph

    Makes me sick that animal abuser Michael Vick makes so much money on everything that he touches. He even looks like the demon he is.

    • bob

      Takes a demon to know what a Demon looks like. Stop worshiping animals.

      • Rivergull

        Have you ever seen the photos from Bad Newz Kennels ?? In the eyes of the abused and dead dogs, Vick was no different than a Charlie Manson. http://premiumblend.net/2008/11/25/michael-vicks-bad-newz-kennels-—-a-heartless-enthusiast-of-barbaric-pit-bull-fights/

        • realistic1 bob

          Are you vegan? if not you are a hypocrite. If you support wars against other nations (that have not attacked your nation firrst) you are a hypocrite. If you don’t show the same compassion, you show here, for the people that die at the hands of other people you are a animal worshiping hypocrite.

          • Rivergull

            As said already in this thread. I stopped eating meat 25 yrs ago. I also marched against the Vietnam war in the 60’s …and feel most wars are caused by religious zealots and/or greed. So you still feel it’s okay to rip dogs apart for fun?

          • Rivergull

            By the way, dogs have served our country in the military… dogs also rescue people… and are man’s most loyal companion. Yet Vick & his pals could pick up the cutest Chihuahua and toss the defenseless dog into a ring of pit bulls, cheering and drinking as the screaming dog’s legs were chewed off. And you don’t think it’s disgusting that Vick now has no qualms about partnering with a guy Bow Wow? Duh!

          • realistic1 bob

            I think the person named “bow woo” is the son of a rapper named Snoop dog ( I think snoop changed his name and subject material he used to rap about). I bring this up to show that the name had nothing to do with animals, because he rapped about, “bitchesandwhores”. They, I dont think were about saving animals.

          • Rivergull

            I don’t care if bow wow is just a sound rappers make in their sleep…it’s just dumb for Vick to hook himself up to a person who uses a name most people associate with dogs. Really… this isn’t rocket science. You do get it, right?

          • KD

            And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply,
            and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish
            of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing
            that moveth upon the earth.- That includes dogs and cats. An animal is a fowl of the earth. man was put here to rule the earth.

          • Rivergull

            Men like you made that up…. not God. God would’ve stepped in and told Vick he was being a sinner.

          • love4geneva

            You have dominion over nothing. Animals are purer than most people. Dogs have been our companions for over 10 thousand yrs. Are you this
            unevolved…

          • realistic1 bob

            I do not “feel ” it is ok to rip any thing alive apart. But everything should be keep in perspective.

    • KD

      No browny points for you! Get a life!

  • Realistic1bob

    Funny how people still hold hate for a man that killed dogs and paid his debt (and went to jail). Yet, people kill other people and they overlook (or quick to forgive). These are dogs not people. Stop the war on humanity, and stop worshiping animals.

    • Rivergull

      Men who cut the throats of dogs, or drown them, or shoot them, or watch them get ripped apart as entertainment are deep down sick… a yr in jail doesn’t repair that flaw in their personality. What if George Zimmerman went into business with some guy named Black Boy… wouldn’t that be callous of him? Same with Vick partnering with some rapper named Bow Wow. Low class stupidity.

      • realistic1

        So in you eyes “black boy” ( in which I guess you mean a black person) is on the same level as a dog. Thanks that sheds light on how you want me to view your reasoning…interesting.

        • Rivergull

          Let me draw you a picture. Z-man killed a black man (so it would be callous if he went into biz with a rapper named “Black Boy”… okay next: Vick-ster killed dogs (and now he’s going into biz with a rapper named “Bow Wow” …. What I meant is very clear and has nothing to do with equating dogs to black people. Only YOU just did that.

          • realistic1

            if Z-man went into business with a black person…I would show he is not the racist people think hes is.

          • Rivergull

            Ha! Z-man already tried that trick by trying to set up a boxing match with DMX. And truthfully I don’t think race is Z-man’s problem… it’s narcissism and a twisted need for approval (hey Mom, look I caught the bad guy!)…only he didn’t… he killed a good kid wearing a hoodie.

          • realistic1

            That is not a business arrangement that is media hype crap to make money. Do you remember the two skaters, one of their husbands busted a leg of a skater. then she went to celebrity boxing. It did nothing for improving her status, it was for money. A business arrangement is different. ( Imagine the two skater in business together)

          • Rivergull

            No matter what you say… these two names side by side…Bow Wow & Michael Vick… make Vick look brainless and unredeemed.

          • realistic1

            Or it looks like… “hey I am an as% that got caught killing dogs, did my time , paid my debt and now I want to change my image and go in the business with someone named Bow Wow…since it would be “illegal” for me to ever be around dogs again…I may have killed dogs but I like the ones that won at dog fighting and my career as a Quarterback is almost over, So I must do something while I still have some money, because people will never forget what I did.. so I will linkup with a person whose name is related to dogs to show I am trying”
            Who ever knows what goes on ,or does not go on, in an athlete’s mind esp. a boxer or football player – think head trauma.

          • Rivergull

            Yeah, head trauma is a good excuse for being brain-whacked. His dogs certainly suffered head trauma and now THEY give hugs and kisses…so maybe there’s hope for Vick and his Bow Wow pal. How cuddly of them. Maybe they’ll expand their haircare line into a dog grooming biz… I can see it now….”Doggie Cuts by Vick & Bow Wow”

          • realistic1

            –“Maybe they’ll expand their haircare line into a dog grooming biz”
            Wow –“THEY give hugs and kisses…”. ” How cuddly of them…” Are you implying they are Homos?

            You lost me … Hair care “expanded” to “dog grooming biz”. and I don’t thing people esp blacks would have the two (dogs and hair) linked together. I happen to know blacks esp females take their hair seriously..far too serious for my likes .. but that is just me ..and an observation.

      • KD

        Funny how people still hold hate for a man that killed dogs and paid his
        debt (and went to jail). Yet, people kill other people and they
        overlook (or quick to forgive). These are dogs not people. Stop the war
        on humanity, and stop worshiping animals.

    • Rivergull

      and I also will never forget what Zimmerman did to Trayvon Martin or what Michael Dunn did to Jordan Davis. Zimmerman and Dunn should share jail cells.

      • realistic1 bob

        I think they should share a prison cell with the an angry black lifer not each other. Unless they are all three in a cell the three being those two and the DC sniper… that would be interesting.

  • jonathan larche

    Michael Vick is a piece of (sub)human garbage. All of you Obama lovers should remember two things: what Vick did to those poor dogs ( he personally beat, hanged and electrocuted many) and how Obama called the Eagles to congratulate the team on taking Vick back to the NFL. What do you expect from these kinds of sub human animals, Vick and Obama.

    • bob

      Another dumb White person that always wants to blame the half white president for all their shortcomings. You are an embarrassment to the white race. You animal worshiping maggot. Go find a book to read and learn something.

      • jonathan larche

        Are you a coon, Bob? I am proud to be all white and a genius. But people like you are always good for farm work as beasts of burden, or maybe mine work, though your black skin makes it hard to shoot at in the dark when you are caught stealing, which is what you animals do.

        • bob

          What is a coon? And I have never farmed or mine work. I can shoot people of all colors equally I shot a white thief in the back- side three years ago and a Spanish guy in the leg once.

          • jonathan larche

            A coon is anyone with black african blood. If you are one, then such work is all you are good for.

          • 7bus

            Unbelievable, Mr. Ivy League School, Worked in Admissions Office.

          • jonathan larche

            All true. It helped shape my thoughts.

        • Rivergull

          Jonathan Larche … this conversation should not stoop to racism. Stick with blaming the individual…not his race.

          • jonathan larche

            It is racial. Obama reached out to the Eagles’ ownership to congratulate them for hiring that POS and dog killer Michael Vick precisely because Vick and Obama ARE black. That’s why he called.

        • 7bus

          The next time you try to say you are not racist on MVTimes, I’d think again, genius. What an ugly internet trail you have. But I love that you say you are a life-long democrat.

          • jonathan larche

            I do love to get the libs going. It’s a fine hobby.

    • Gunnar

      What does Obama have anything to do with Mike Vick? So, because both are African Americans you lump them together as the same humans? Thank you for showing why the Republican party is falling apart LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • jonathan larche

        Actually I am a lifelong Democrat. But that said. I did not make this about race. I am afraid my party did. The Democrat Party is consumed with race. Everything becomes about race. But consider this: Blacks represent 12.5% of the population, and yet represent 80% of the prison population. I suppose they’re all innocent.

      • jonathan larche

        Obama connected himself to Michael Vick precisely because both of them are black. What a disgrace that Obama congratulated the Eagles for taking back Vick, a sub human who gleefully tortured and killed dogs for fun and money.

    • Rivergull

      Let’s not be anti-black here. There are plenty of white men who torture and abuse animals. This is about the individual Michael Vick being stupid enough to go into biz with a guy named Bow Wow. I mean, you couldn’t make this stuff up.

  • Rivergull

    I KNOW that’s his friend’s name. And the irony is downright hard to take. So how much of the profits from Wave Masterz will be going to the organization that saved the abused dogs? Doing so might make his partnership with a man named “Bow Wow” more palatable…and might even serve to redeem Vick’s image.

    • bob

      People (most) will never let his image be redeemed because they are Hippocrates. He paid his debt.

      • jonathan larche

        Hippocrates? You must be a coon too.

        • bob

          Hypocrite, fool! For you to imply that I am a coon ( whatever that is) I figure you are trying to say (with insult) I am an African American.. Sorry nope I am not. But I am a lot more intelligent that your southern jim crow pecker wood Non educated county As%.

          • jonathan larche

            I say you are a coon because you write like one, think like one and act like one. The nature of your skin pigment doesn’t matter.

          • bob

            @ jonathan the coon larche
            you say
            —–“A coon is anyone with black african blood. If you are one, then such work is all you are good for.”

            now you say
            —-“I say you are a coon because you write like one, think like one and act like one. The nature of your skin pigment doesn’t matter.”

            This prove that you are as i stated earlier — I am a lot more intelligent than your southern jim crow pecker wood Non educated county As%. and you must be a coon because

            Only a “coon would know how a coon WRITES and THINKS

            I do not know how another animal writes and thinks so you proved to me that you are the best example of a coon or raccoon person. laughing at you …a lot

          • bob

            oh yea, I almost forgot …You animal worshiping maggot. lol

      • Rivergull

        He paid NOTHING to Best Friends Animal Society who spent years helping the surviving dogs trust humans again. They now live in happy loving homes… with no thanks to multimillionaire Vick.

        • KD

          I see this is about you trying to profit off Vick. Vick don’t owe you and your dog loving group a thin dime! Stop already with your BS.

      • Rivergull

        He did pay his debt to society…but he should be smarter than to put his name in lights with a guy named Bow Wow. It’s like rubbing salt in the wounds of those dogs. He even included a ‘z’ on the end of WaveMasterz (like Bad Newz Kennels). That, combined with a partner named Bow Wow shows Vick is either stupid or sending a message to his friends that he’s still the old Vick-ster.

  • linda Tibbets

    are you kidding me? what a way to sneer about all the damage he did, all the cruelty he caused for money and personal entertainment. this guys balls just get bigger and bigger! this is a sociopath

  • bob

    @jonathan larche Did I scare your racist behind off? Or is it only fun for you to belittle people you think are african americans and rant against the president (you anti-patriot, you). I looked up “coon” , sorry I don’t see why you refer to people as racoons I don’t get it, is this more animal worshiping? please enlighten me.

  • Jay

    First of all I do not worship animals. I worship God, who loved all his creations. Every bird in the sky is known and loved by God. I can assume God made pitbulls as well. I also make the assumption God then also loves pitbulls. Yes, we are his favorite creation. Second, I am in no way racist. I do not watch football. I have never watched football and for all I knew Michael Vick was white. Seriously, I don’t watch T.V. Third Mr. Vick did not pay his debt. He was famous and had money so he got a slap on the wrist. There are tons of studies showing the correlation between animal abuse and violent crimes. Someone who commits these types of acts would defidentaly not be welcome around my family. I mean really, you can honestly say a man who slits a dogs throat is someone you would bring to dinner? By the way, George Zimmerman is also someone I find reprehensible, but that really has nothing to do with this topic

  • Yabbaba

    Idiots selling crap, what else is new?!

  • Bauuub

    Yep, I will/would ever buy the ‘dog killers’ products…Hell, I wont even watch a football game if he is in it!!

  • love4geneva

    Only words he could spell!
    He is a sadistic moron. Maybe attach some battery cables to his balls,and watch him swim . His lack of progress as a qb is deserving of the punishment those dogs suffered.
