Bow Wow Owes IRS $100K, Calls Report ‘Media Lies’

By Allen Starbury   /   Published 11/28/11

Bow WowIs Bow Wow having money problems? That is unclear, but he does owe the IRS some cash -- six figures worth.

According to TMZ, the young rapper (real name: Shad Moss) owes nearly $100,000 in unpaid taxes from 2006. A tax lien was filed against Bow in the state of Florida for the delinquent taxes, according to court docs.

Bow Wow shot down the report though, via an open letter on his blog, where he brushed off the claims as "media lies."

"TMZ saying they are about to runa story on me thats once again 'Not True' as im sitting in my beautiful condo as of RIGHT NOW that they said i dont have anymore (Bow Wow with no home thats like a whore that doesn’t like d***)," the rapper wrote. "We all know not to believe anything the media writes or blogs its their job to entertain the minds of the simple minded."

Later in his letter, he also explained why his Cash Money Records debut, titled Underrated, has been delayed. He blames himself, instead of his label, saying he's trying to perfect things.

"Underrated is a classic. This is my best work," writes Bow Wow. "So i be damn i put it out and it aint right. Dont blame my label they have nothing to do with my decision. Birdman lets me be a boss and do what i want. He my manager so of course he wants the best for me. 2012 ull get it.

"Its taking so long because im putting my all into it. This is not just an album its my pain my life my story me in the now how im feeling," he later added.

At press time, Underrated had no release date.

Below is Bow Wow's open letter in its entirety:

Underrated Album "Whats The Hold Up"

Its two ten in the morning and im up watching Soul Train. Before i get into what i came here for, TMZ saying they are about to runa story on me thats once again "Not True" as im sitting in my beautiful condo as of RIGHT NOW that they said i dont have anymore. (Bow Wow with no home thats like a whore that doesn't like d**k) We all know not to believe anything the media writes or blogs its their job to entertain the minds of the simple minded. But on to whats important, "UNDERRATED" everyone wants to know why its delayed or why is it getting pushed back. I hear yall jokes "His sh** aint never droppin" it is dropping. "When I Feel like its right tho" my album sounds nothing like what you've heard come out of the camp PERIOD so far. I know yall want this album just as much as i want to deliver it. The thing is tour just ended like 3 n half weeks ago. I left studio to tour which of course set me back. I have to mix all the records which i have just now kinda started. "Sweat" video will be out in a week or 2. Took a minute to finalize all the graphics and detail because of the CGI effects. Also dont forget im stil working on my tv sitcom with Ice Cube as well. I think people forget i got 2 jobs (Rapper/Ator) hahaha.. Record just went to radio as well. Not only that but im trying to get India Irie to sing on "Boy Or Girl" being that that sample you are hearing on that record is her. I figured it would be so meaningful and better with her apart of it live. Its taking so long because im putting my all into it. This is not just an album its my pain my life my story me in the now how im feeling. Things are different this time around ima father now to a beautiful baby girl i have so much poetry and new things to share with the world. Everything that pops up in the news that yall want to hear me touch on i talk about it. I bare it all on this album. This is my "Classic" Underrated is a classic. This is my best work. So i be damn i put it out and it aint right. Dont blame my label they have nothing to do with my decision. Birdman lets me be a boss and do what i want. He my manager so of course he wants the best for me. 2012 ull get it. In the mean time ill keep you all updated through youtube with my "Underrated" Webisodes. As for me ima jump back in the studio and get the working. Being that thats all i ever do is work. Love yall
and stay away from them damn blogs its bad for your health. Ima always keep it 100 with yall and let yall know the real on anything i got going on even if its bad if its the truth ill own up to it. 100 and get ready for UNDERRATED YMCMB

    You know what.  Even if there was a notice issued to Bow Wow looking for money from the IRS, who cares.  The IRS is always looking for ways to get money they don't deserve getting their hands on.  I believe Bow Wow when he says there is no issue.  The government is broke and is looking to get money anyway they can take it.  Don't believe a word of it.  If you look, the IRS is harassing every star out there or anyone they think has extra money.  It's not just Bow Wow, it's everyone.  I trust the IRS as far as I can see them and I do not see them.
