Bow Wow – AKA Shad Moss – has taken to Twitter to announce his official retirement from the rap game. Paired with monochrome photos from recent performances, Moss revealed that his upcoming Snoop Dogg-produced album Nylth will be “the last one,” explaining that he “always said years ago that he’d retire from music before 30.” Reasoning that he didn’t need to be greedy because he’s already made over $20 million dollars from rap and “made it to the white house,” Bow Wow also thanked fans for 10 million album sales in the sentimental string of tweets. Since making a name for himself as Lil’ Bow Wow in the early 2000s, Moss has also branched out into other fields, including a role as Brody “Baby Face” Nelson on CSI: Cyber, and television hosting gigs for the Grammys pre-show and BET’s 106 & Park. See his tweets and Instagram post below.
