Bow Wow News Archive
We did not see this coming… mostly because we had no idea he was still in the game!
This weekend, Bow Wow announced he would be retiring from rap in a string of tweets — but not before dropping one last album!
Early Sunday morning, the 29-year-old reminded fans he always wanted to "retire from music before 30," declaring he was satisfied with his career earnings of a cool "20 million off rap."
And though Bow Wow (AKA Shad Moss) will shortly be setting off on new adventures, the Puppy Love rapper — who began his career at 13 years old — revealed that his final album NYLTH will be exec produced by Snoop Dogg.
We can't wait to see what's in store for the rapper, though having starred in films like All About the Benjamins, Like Mike, and Lottery Ticket, we're hoping to see more Moss on the screen!
Ch-ch-check out the performer's announcement (below)!
The news of Prince's passing shook the world on Thursday morning.
Similarly to us, many celebrities were heartbroken to hear of the death of the musical icon at the young age of 57.
Take a look at the saddened tweets (below):
Mena, who also addressed her appearance on Love & Hip Hop, had the following to say about Bow Wow being an "abuser":
Class is in session, y'all.
Bow Wow AKA Shad Moss created his very own PSA on Monday to inform the masses about the origin of "dab." The dance — which we've seen the dance most recently by NFL owners, news anchors, and professional athletes — has sparked an Internet craze, and the 28-year-old rapper is. just. not. having it.
What the Like Mike star probably wasn't expecting was the insane amount of backlash from his fans! We mean, people are completely up in arms about this.
Here's how it went down.
Bow posted the selfie video of him explaining that the "dab" is actually a strong hit of weed that makes you cough, causing you to put your mouth to your arm (hence, the dance move):
"We got the whole world dabbing, and they don't even understand or know what dab is. First of all, dab is a strong way to smoke marijuana. It's the purest form of marijuana. It's extremely strong."
The Ohio native said he is sick and tired of people dabbing all over the place without knowing what it means:
"There you go, I just helped you out. That's the origin of it. So when you see these old people on the news, CNN, and these sports anchors that do it because they see Cam Newton do it or because they see NBA players do it — we come from the culture, we know what it is. It's y'all that don't know."
Here are a few examples we're sure the Shortie Like Mine singer is referring to:
Although at least this classic show won't be leaving us forever - we just won't be able to catch it on television anymore!
It seems like BET's 106 & Park has been on since before we can remember, and it certainly has been on a while aka fourteen seasons!!!
But on December 19th the iconic show will air its very last episode on television.
Although that's not exactly true since the show will sometimes come back for variety specials including their infamous New Year's special! And folks will still be able to catch the show, but they'll have to go online to find it!
Here's what BET's President of Music Programming and Specials Stephen Hill had to say
