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."

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!
