Twenty-two year old rapper Bow Wow says he has had enough of the rap game and is retiring from the industry after 7 albums. Not everyone is convinced about the faux retirement publicity announcement. Do Jay-z and 50 Cent's promise to retire ring a bell? Bow wow says that he wants to focus on his acting career.
Bow Wow's album New Jack City 2 debuted to lackluster record sales.
Binside TV caught up with Bow Wow last season during NY Fashion Week. The hip hop superstar gave his runway reviews of Russell Simmons Argyle Culture Fashion show and Betsy Johnson. Bow Wow also talks about his desire to do more acting and focus on his film career. Hosted by Shomari Harris. Producer/Director/Cinematographer/Editor Shani Harris.
Bow Wow has announced that he is retiring from the music industry.
The rapper, real name Shad Gregory Moss, admitted that he has achieved everything he wants with his recording career and now plans to focus on acting.
"This is my last album because for me, there's no more that needs to be done on the music side, I've done everything," Contactmusic quotes him as saying.
"And the scary thing is I'm 22 years old and I'm young. I'm still a baby, so it's kinda like on the music side, I've been doing it since five. That's 17 years of non-stop music, music, music. There's nothing more to accomplish that I haven't seen yet."
The star rose to fame with his debut Beware Of The Dog in 2000 and has since released six albums.
Bow Wow will appear alongside Forest Whitaker and Taraji P. Henson in basketball drama Hurricane Season, released later this year. [DIGITAL SPY]
