About Shad Moss
Shad Moss is the government name & now new artistic name for the artist formerly known as Bow Wow. As Bow reached a certain age, he felt "Bow Wow" didn't fit who he was today, and needed to grow up. Shad said "I'ma father, business man, TV host, Actor, and rapper! Time for MR. Moss to take over!".
Either way, Shad Moss remains one of the more recognizable names in hip-hop to this day. Since getting an early start in the nineties with the help of Snoop Dogg (who discovered and rap named him), Dr. Dre (who signed him to Death Row Records initially) and Jermaine Dupri (who became his mentor), he's since gone on to release seven mixtapes and six studio albums (selling more than 5 million worldwide) and has collaborated with the likes of French Montana, Compton Menace, Chevy Woods, Jadakiss, Styles P, Jagged Edge, Da Brat, Kurupt, Layzie Bone, Chris Brown, Hurricane Chris, T-Pain, Jessica Simpson, Destiny's Child, Mariah Carey and many more throughout his career. He's currently working on a new album titled Underrated (to be released via Birdman's Cash Money Records), and is a host on 106 & Park (which he was recently fake-fired from). Stay tuned for updates on his career.
