Bow Wow to Shad Moss

Bow Wow previously dropped "Lil" from his moniker to signify that he was all grown up, and more recently, Bow announced this week that he was also dropping the name Snoop Doggy Dogg gave him as a tyke altogether.

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!"
