Rapper and host of BET’s 106 and Park, Bow Wow, is ready for a new chapter in his life and has no plans of bringing the name ‘Bow Wow’ with him.

According to MTV, after the BET Awards this Sunday, Bow Wow would like for everyone to call him by his real name, Shad Moss. Bow Wow is set to present with fellow host Keisha Chante at the BET Awards this Sunday. It’s a tradition that the 106 and Park hosts present the Viewer’s Choice Awards with a lucky fan.

Bow revealed via Instagram that “Bow wow does not fit who i am today. Ima father, business man, TV host, Actor, and rapper! Time for MR Moss to take over!”

The YMCMB artist started his career under the alias Lil Bow Wow with his debut album Beware of Dog. The album went triple platinum and was later preceded by the platinum album Doggy Bag.

After that he dropped the ‘lil’ from his name and just went by Bow Wow and scored more platinum-selling efforts that spawned the biggest singles of his career like “Shorty Like Mine” and “Like You." In addition to being a successful recording artist, he is also a successful actor, starring in over 10 films.
