Bow Wow Announces New Album ‘Edicius’

On the heels of his “Emotional” video, Bow Wow is ready for a rebirth.

Shad Moss took to social media to reveal the title of his next album, Edicius, which is suicide spelled backwards.

“Decided to name my album EDICIUS,” he tweeted. “its SUICIDE backwards… the meaning means … To bring yourself back from something .The name represents relentlessness, coming back for more even after death. Left the old me and woke up a NEW ME.”

Bow Wow has been candid about suicide in the past. In 2010, he posted about death on Twitter. “I swear i be wishing i was dead sometimes. Because i feel like that’s the only way ill get peace,” he wrote.

In 2016, Bow Wow revealed that he encountered suicidal urges as a teenager. “I was in a dark space,” he told Vlad TV. “Right around the third album, that’s when I was just done.”

Last year, he made a series of alarming social media posts. “Sometimes i wish i wasnt here,” he wrote. “Sometimes i REALLY wish i never existed… i can never do SHIT RIGHT EVEN WHEN IM DOING RIGHT! Im better off …..”

In addition to Edicius, Bow Wow is also working on his DJ Drama-hosted mixtape Greenlight 6.
