It looks like someone has caught ‘Puff Daddy Syndrome’ …or is it ‘P. Diddy Syndrome’ or ‘Diddy Syndrome’? Rapper Bow Wow aka Lil Bow Wow is saying goodbye to the name that carried him to musical fame years ago. The MC just announced via his Instagram that he’d like to be identified by his birth name, Shad Moss. Check out his explanation below:
“We made a lot of history as bow wow,” he wrote on Instagram. “Now its time for the next chapter and challenge. Bow Wow does not fit who I am today. Ima father, business man, TV host, Actor, and rapper! Time for MR Moss to take over!” Additionally, Moss declared that the name change will take effect after the BET Awards, which airs Sunday. If you recall, Moss originally got the nickname “Lil Bow Wow” from Snoop Dogg.
The name change will hopefully bring some positive momentum back to the one-time rappers ailing musical career. True, Shad has been holding down the host position on 106 & Park for a while now, still the man has not had any commercial success musically in years. Hopefully Shad has some bark left in him after all.
