Bow Wow Announces Plans to Retire Stage Name After BET Awards
Back in 2002, Bow Wow decided to drop the “Lil” from his stage name since transitioning into adulthood.
Now, he’s opted to replace his moniker altogether.
“After (the) BET awards, I will no longer go by Bow Wow!” he said. “I’m going by my real name, Shad Moss. We made a lot of history as Bow Wow. Now, it’s time for the next chapter and challenge.”
He adds: “Bow Wow does not fit who I am today. I’m a father, businessman, TV host, actor and rapper! Time for Mr. Moss to take over!”
The rapper’s stage name was given to him by his mentor Snoop Dogg in 1993.
