Bow Wow Decides To Retire Rap Moniker

Bow Wow

After going by Lil Bow Bow, and then shortening it to simply Bow Wow years ago, the rapper is moving on, deciding to retire his longtime moniker.

The 27-year-old rapper/106 & Park host will officially go by Shad Moss after the BET Awards on June 29th.

“After BET awards i will no longer go by Bow Wow!” he announced on Instagram. “Im going by my real name ‘Shad Moss’ we made alot of history as bow wow. Now its time for the next chapter and challenge.”

Bow said the name change is part of his evolution. “Bow wow does not fit who i am today,” he explained. “Ima father, business man, TV host, Actor, and rapper! Time for MR Moss to take over!”

Snoop Dogg gave him the stage name Lil’ Bow Wow in 1993. In 2002, he dropped the “Lil” from his name.

  2. Actually hater someone does give a fuck and his has made good music and still does. he’s a very good actor and does a wonderful job on 106 an park. And do think he is a very good role model for our young black men in the rap game and in society as a whole
