Bow Wow Is No Longer Bow Wow?

It looks like Bow Wow is ready to start a new chapter in his professional life. The rapper and “106 & Park” host announced on Instagram that he’s officially going by his birth name, Shad Moss. He posted a video to let his fans know just how serious he is.

In the caption, he wrote: “ANNOUNCEMENT: After BET awards i will no longer go by Bow Wow! 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 wow does not fit who i am today. Ima father, business man, TV host, Actor, and rapper! Time for MR Moss to take over!”

We commend Bow, er, Shad for wanting to change it up for professional purposes, but we’ll always remember him as Bow Weezy.
