Bow Wow is just 31 years old but has been in the recording business for damn near 25 years. It has brought many moments which have been both embarrassing and celebratory.
The Columbus, Ohio rapper stopped by The Breakfast Club on Power 105 this morning for what he calls his “final interview” on radio. Bow, whose real name is Shad Moss, talked about everything going on his life and controversies of the past. Bow Wow was confronted by Charlamagne Tha God, Angela Yee, and DJ Envy with all sorts of questions relating to the embarrassing #BowWowChallenge. The trend started after the rapper was caught flying coach when an Instagram post made it seem like he was getting ready for a private jet ride. That viral sensation is now the basis of Moss’ latest TV venture with producer Mona Scott.
Bow also discussed the controversy when he photoshopped himself into a legendary photo of Death Row Records artists including 2Pac, Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre, among others. “When I got with Snoop, Dre and everybody decided to part ways, and Snoop was last to really leave. He just felt that me being at Death Row wasn’t really the right situation for a seven-year-old kid at the time,” explained Bow that he was really a signed artist at Death Row at one time. “When they had discovered me, I had moved out to L.A. I just sat on the label. What’s crazy is that a couple of records had leaked, which are actually on YouTube, records that Kurupt actually had wrote for me that was supposed to be on the Murder Was The Case soundtrack that never made it.”
Bow then made the surprising revelation that the original Tha Dogg Pound group was supposed to be him, Daz and Kurupt. Watch the full interview below.
