Suicide is no April Fool’s prank to play with, and Bow Wow actually wasn’t doing so when he tweeted the word in its backward form as “EDICIUS” on Sunday (April 1).
Instead, as social media decoded, the spelling is the exact opposite of what fans feared Bow might have been trying to tell us, and portrays what he has confirmed will be the title of his next album.

Decided to name my album “EDICIUS” its SUICIDE backwards... the meaning means ... To bring yourself back from something .The name represents relentlessness,coming back for more even after death. Left the old me and woke up a NEW ME.— Bow Wow (@smoss) April 2, 2018
