Shad Gregory Moss–otherwise known as Bow Wow– has begun his second decade on the entertainment scene and America has watched him grow from a pre-teen to an adult.
Now in his early 20’s, Bow Wow is starting a new phase of his career with a new record company, Cash Money Records. Bow Wow’s old record label, Columbia had put out his first six albums and helped to put his name on the map.
Bow Wow’s seventh album is entitled “Who is Shad Moss?” and the first single that was released was “Ain’t Thinkin’ About You” which features Chris Brown. The album will include artists such as Lil Wayne, Soulja Boy and Drake just to name a few.
Bow Wow’s video to the song “Ain’t Thinkin’ About You” had received a lot of airplay on BET (Black Entertainment Television) and had become one of the network’s most requested videos.
It will be interesting to see how his album does under a new label. Additionally, will Bow Wow continue to build his film career? If one remembers, he had starred in movies such as “Like Mike” in 2002 and the retro “Roll Bounce” a few years later. Recently, he had starred in the movie with Ice Cube and Brandon T. Jackson called “Lottery Ticket’.
Bow Wow’s next film will be a Tyler Perry project that will be part of the Madea series which is scheduled to be released in 2011.
The following is my Top 5 Bow Wow songs:
1. “Let Me Hold You“ is the first single from the 2005 album called Wanted.
