Bow Wow Is Retiring From Rap
Back in the summer of 2014, Bow Wow made a significant career move in dropping his stage name for his government, saying in an Instagram video, "We made a lot of history as bow wow. Now it's time for the next chapter and challenge.” Now, the rapper, actor and host has announced another career development, taking to Twitter early Sunday morning (Aug. 7) to share that he has decided to retire from rap altogether.
"Retirement only means that it is time for a new adventure over 10 million sold. This the last one. THANK YOU," he wrote. "I always said years ago i'd retire from music before 30. I just cant see myself at 30 years old rapping. Made over 20 million off rap. Why be greedy? I'm good with everything I accomplished. I made it to the white house."
He also revealed the title of his final album, Nylth. "My last album will be Executive Produced by my uncle Snoop and myself. Since he brought me in the game, its only right i involve him and end it with him. ITS OFFICIAL!!!! THIS SHIT BOUT TO BANG ON MOMMAS! And we aiming and im talking RECKLESS on this album. NOBODY SAFE #DPG #ATK THE TITLE OF MY FINAL ALBUM "NYLTH.""
This news comes just three months after the now former rapper admitted that he has hated rapping his entire life. “Folks don’t know that. I always wanted to be a comedian growing up. I wanted to act," he wrote on Twitter. "I got songs. Tons. Just not really passionate bout the game," he continued. "Made the money. Been rapping since 5. New place now."
Shortly following that reveal, Moss's show CSI: Cyber got axed after two seasons, so the decision to quit rap likely means there are other projects on the horizon. Check his tweets below which come accompanied with concert photos.
