Rapper Bow Wow, born Shad Moss, has worked too hard for his fortune and wants people to know his worth. The “Shorty Like Mine” hit maker has had his net worth called into question a lot in recent weeks. While some may think his glory days are behind him, Moss just celebrated another successful tour and is planning some big things for fans in the coming weeks.
Bow Wow has been making hits since he was a child. Starting at the tender age of 13, he released a string of successful projects that made him a staple on 106 & Park and a touring powerhouse. This included songs like “Bounce With Me,” “Like You,” and “Outta My System.” By the time he reached his teens, Bow Wow had stepped into Hollywood with hit films like “Johnson Family Vacation,” “Like Mike,” and “Roll Bounce.” He’s also dominated on television as well. Bow Wow starred on CSI Cyber for a season as Broady “Baby Face” Nelson. He also stars in Growing Up Hip-Hop: Atlanta and is listed as an executive producer on the program as well as several of its spin-offs. Moss also recently finished third on the massively popular Masked Singer, where he performed as a Frog.
Shad has been cashing in on the nostalgia train and has already done several legs of his Millennium Tour, too much success. The latest lap features singers Mario, Keri Hilson, Lloyd, and rappers Ying Yang Twins, Pretty Ricky, and more as supporting guests. While on his recent tour, Bow Wow admitted to his plans of retirement from music and ambitions of joining the wrestling or professional celebrity boxing worlds.
Throughout the last year Bow Wow has been met with a lot of criticism as many have forgot the impact the rapper had on the music industry back in the early 2000s. Many peers including fans have taken shots at the rapper calling him broke and/or a has been. Soulja Boy and Bow Wow went back and forth on social media which resulted in Soulja Boy comparing his net worth to Bow Wow. Most recently, the 00s rapper took to social media to shoot his shot at AEW world champion Jade Cargill.
Bow Wow teased if he won his first match, he’d want to take her out on a date. The very taken Jade quickly shut him down, saying he could not afford her. This has been the recurring narrative as they debate funds and almost came to blows backstage at his recent show, with some fans speculating it is all a setup for a future storyline and Shad’s wrestling debut. Bow Wow is not feeling the dig at his pockets and his eagerness to put the misconception to rest that he is “broke and washed up.”
Under a video of him celebrating his tour wrapping up backstage, a heckler told him no one was checking for him anymore in the comments. Now Wow clapped back, saying, “hit me when you can open your bank app and see 20 MIL.” Bow Wow also bragged about completing his second arena tour in under a year with no new music or album. “Stop playing with me; I’m GOATED,” he said in the caption. He teased that something great would be following this tour, telling fans, “you’ll see, VERY SOON.”
Could all the beef with Jade really have been setting Bow Wow up for his wrestling debut? Only time will tell.
