Bow Wowhas been a staple in hip hop for almost 20 years and now the YMCMB emcee is ready for a name change. Previously dropping "Lil" from his moniker, Bow announced this week that he was also dropping the name Snoop Doggy Dogg gave him as a tyke.
Hitting up Instagram, Mr. 106 & Park revealed, "After BET awards I will no longer go by Bow Wow! 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. Bow wow does not fit who I am today. I'm a father, business man, TV host, Actor, and rapper! Time for MR. Moss to take over!"
