Shad Moss, better known as Bow Wow, took to Twitter to announce he’s bringing his rap career to a close. According to the Like Mike star, he will now focus on acting, hosting, as well as producing two shows within the following year. The 29-year-old also took the time to announce his last studio album under Bad Boy Records, which will be produced by uncle Snoop Dog himself.
“Retirement only means that it is time for a new adventure” over 10 million sold. This the last one. THANK YOU pic.twitter.com/XnWldHxYrB

“I always said years ago I’d retire from music before 30,” he continued. “I just cant see myself at 30 years old rapping. Made over 20 million off rap. Why be greedy? I’m good with everything i accomplished. I made it to the white house.”
While Moss seemed very serious in his farewell to music, Twitter didn’t exactly take it so serious..to say the least. Just take a look for yourself.

@XXL now he is retiring. Maybe him and Stacey Dash can do a movie; we would love White Girls 2
