|Shad Moss is dropping Bow Wow for good.|
Shad Moss, formerly known as Bow Wow is announcing he is putting the mic up for good. The 29 year old rapper has decided that the music isn't popping anymore and he felt its time to move on.
When we first heard of Shad Moss, we knew him as Lil' Bow Wow. The name was given to him by the legendary Snoop Dogg. He was then signed to Jermaine Dupri's So So Def Recordings. His debut single "Bounce with Me" from Big Mama's House sparked a memorable career in pop music.
Moss would become a huge pop celebrity. His debut album Beware of Dog became a hit. He would achieve a platinum album at the age of 12. The album had features from Snoop Dogg, Xscape, Da Brat, Jermaine Dupri and Jagged Edge.
Then his follow up album Doggy Bag came out and it reached platinum. Around that time, Durpi was having issues with Columbia Records and So So Def left leaving Moss and Jagged Edge behind.
Moss would get acting gigs and a modeling career. He wss at the top of his game.
Around that time, Moss decides to drop the Lil' off Bow Wow. He would release three more albums and a collaboration album with former B2K singer Omarion.
About the time his contract with Columbia, he was looking for a label to release his music. He would find a home with Cash Money and Young Money.
For at least five years, Moss was gearing up for a return to the music with the album Underrated. It was supposed to be released around 2011, but it was shelved for the newer and popular acts. Lil' Wayne, Drake and Nicki Minaj were dominating the charts and it was squeezing time away from acts like Moss,Tyga and Busta Rhymes.
Around 2012, Moss held a spot on the couch on BET. He was one of the final host to 106 & Park, a music video show. He would soon announce he would leave Cash Money Records around the end of 106 & Park.
Now he signed to Sean "Puffy" Comb's Bad Boy Records. He is hoping that this album will be a masterpiece before he ends his career as a rapper.
We can only hope.
Anyway, the CSI: Cyber franchise was a flop. CBS canceled the series within its second season.
