Bow Wow Announces Name Change

Posted Tuesday June 24, 2014 11:20 AM GMT

Admittedly, the name Lil Bow Wow doesn’t exactly serve him well now that he’s not a teen rapper, and Shad Moss wants to go by his legal moniker.

The 27-year-old entertainer posted a video to Instagram explaining that he’ll start using ‘Shad Moss’ following the June 29th BET Awards.

Mr. Moss declared, “After BET awards i will no longer go by Bow Wow! I’m 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!”
