Bow Wow (Shad Moss) has announced that after one last album, he’s hanging up his hat and calling it quits. His confirmed it via Twitter yesterday (August 7).
“Made over 20 million off rap. Why be greedy? Im good with everything i accomplished. I made it to the white house,” he said, though he didn’t make it to the epic birthday party Michelle Obama threw for the president’s 55th.
But whatever. Bow Wow says he’s done with rapping now because he’d always told himself that he wouldn’t still be rapping at 30.
“I always said years ago i’d retire from music before 30. I just cant see myself at 30 years old rapping,” said the 29 year-old.
Bow Wow turns 30 in March 2017, so if he’s true to his word his “last album” will need to make an appearance fairly soon. He also echoed comments he made in an interview last month, saying that he’s accomplished a lot in music and there really isn’t much else that he wants to shoot for, as far as music, at least.
“Retirement only means that it is time for a new adventure. Over 10 million sold. This the last one. THANK YOU,” he wrote, although there was no mention of what exactly his new adventure would be. Of course, Bow Wow started his acting career early on and is the former host of 106 & Park, so maybe he’s looking in Hollywood’s direction.
He also went on Instagram and confirmed his retirement, saying that Snoop Dogg has signed on to executive produce his exit from the rap game, adding it’s only right since Snoop is the one who brought him in.
“I’m talking reckless on this album,” Bow Wow wrote. “Nobody Safe.”
