Rap-Up TV: Bow Wow Explains Shad Moss Name

Starting next week, Bow Wow will officially retire his stage name and go by his birth name, Shad Moss. But the change shouldn’t come as a surprise.

“It’s a name that they heard my whole career,” he told Rap-Up TV at the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards. “To me, it wasn’t really that big of a deal. I was laughing at the reaction that everybody was making it the biggest news in the world. It was just hilarious ’cause I was like, ‘Shit. I’m just using my normal name.’”

He had been thinking about making the transition for some time now. “I always threw hints about it through my music, but for all my fans that grow with me, they know the name,” he said. “So for them, it’s really not a change.”

It’s just part of his growth as an artist and business man. “I’m embarking on so many different things now, television, clothing, you name it. It’s kinda hard for me to be just Bow Wow. I gotta play both sides of the field.”

Plus, hear him praise his mentor Jermaine Dupri for inspiring his big moves.

Chris Brown

Chris Brown appeared in a D.C. courtroom on Friday for the start of his assault trial. The “Loyal” singer was joined by his family and friends including his mother Joyce Hawkins, Karrueche Tran, Bow Wow, and Tank.

Judge Patricia Wynn was expected to deliver her verdict in Brown’s bodyguard Christopher Hollosy’s trial Friday, but she delayed that until Monday. Brown’s trial will also begin Monday.

Brown and Hollosy both face an assault charge after a Maryland man says they punched him outside the W Hotel in October after he tried to take a photo with the star. But Brown has denied hitting the man, who he claims was trying to get on his tour bus.

During his brief court appearance, a suit-clad Chris waved to his family and Bow Wow, who flashed the peace sign.

The singer, who is currently on probation for the Rihanna assault case, faces up to four years in prison.
