Bow Wow Is Aiming to Be the G.O.A.T. of His Era

He’s come a long way from his 1993 debut on the Arsenio Hall Show.

Published February 3, 2016

Shad Moss, formerly known as Bow Wow, is coming back to his hosting roots in a fresh way. Bow Wow previously stepped away from music to pursue other creative endeavors, including being one of the final hosts for 106 & Park. Since the show ended in 2014, Bow Wow changed his image and started going by his real name, Shad Moss, in hopes of pursuing something greater than just being another rapper.

Moss took to Instagram this morning to announce that he’s coming to late night television. In his announcement, he stated that in terms of 106 & Park, he felt he didn’t have as much control as he wanted to. He also mentioned that it won’t be like anything that’s currently on TV, but music will play an important role in the show’s content. Moss concluded the post by saying that he wants his first guest to be Kobe Bryant.

He also took to Twitter yesterday to confirm that he’s done with music and is “cool making millions on film/TV.” He also stated that he has dreams of getting an Emmy. Moss is currently starring in CBS’s latest CSI installment, CSI: Cyber. is your No. 1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.

First time people saw me was on Arsenio Hall show. So its only right i go back to where it started.first let me thank him by paving the way because i wouldn't have did what I'm about to do. I been quietly working on a project that i felt was needed. When i hosted 106 i knew then i could do whatever (talent wise) but i did not own 106 i had little control and i gots to be the man because im a creator. So when i cant be creative well... But i learned so much to the point i will have my own late night show coming. I get to run my own show content etc... We will have the best producers and show runners in the game! Wont be like ANYTHING ON TV. Its going to be a show YOU HAVE TO WATCH. Music will play an important key to the show. I felt i HAD to do this. Theres no platform for hip hop artist no more. Where can they go to promote on tv other than revolt (they still growing) thats crazy 1 outlet?!! Music videos became less important. College kids and high school students have nothing at 10pm to really look forward to. Where my guest could be Kendrick lamar w j cole performing live. To having Michelle Obama on. I found my stride. I want to help the culture and this is my way of giving back to the game that made me! Get ready i'm going through set designs now. REMEMBER I NEVER WANTED TO BE THE BEST RAPPER, but the GREATEST MULTI ENTERTAINER OF ALL TIME FOR MY ERA. Ps.. I WANT MY FIRST GUEST TO BE NONE OTHER THAN LAKER LEGEND KOBE BRYANT! i want to kixk the show off w him. #shadmoss #BowcomingtolatenightTV #HISTORY #showwillbeINCREDIBLE #lasttodothisarsineohall #younglegend
