First, there was Lil Bow Wow.
Then in 2002, he became just Bow Wow.
And now, at age 27, the rapper/actor is ready to go by a new name!
Well, by new we mean old since he’s decided to go by Shad Moss!
That’s his ACTUAL name!
Bow Wow Shad shared his announcement in a video on Instagram, saying:
"Breaking news man! After the BET Awards, I’m changing my name. I’m going with my real name. No more Bow Wow after June 29th, man. Shad Moss is what it is. New era, new money. Let’s go.”
So enjoy Bow Wow now while you still can, world! Because in 4 days, he’ll only answer to Shad Moss!
We actually really like the sound of Shad Moss! He probably should have just been going by his birth name this whole time!
