Bow Wow returns to where it all began.
The rapper has announced plans to reunite with Snoop Dogg and release his latest album on Death Row Records, which was recently acquired by the hip-hop icon.
During a Twitter Q&A, Shad Moss was asked when he plans to hook up with Snoop, who discovered him when he was just 6 years old.
‘I spoke to Snoop last week. Very soon,” he told a fan. “My plan is to put my last album on death row and finish my music career where it started. I’m trying to do the D wade and come home and close it.

Snoop gave Bow Wow his original stage name, Lil’ Bow Wow, after seeing him perform at a concert in 1993. He later appeared on Snoop’s debut album doggy style before finally signing with Jermaine Dupri at So So Def. His 2000 single “Bow Wow (That’s My Name)” also featured Snoop.
Earlier this month, Snoop announced that he had acquired Death Row from Blackstone-controlled MNRK Music Group and plans to turn it into the first major record label to operate as an “NFT label”.
Bow Wow hasn’t released a new studio album in over a decade. In early 2021, he announced that he wanted to release one more album before quitting.
“I’m making another album. It will be the last and it will be called Before the 30thand I’ll let Snoop tell the whole story,” he told Ebro in the Morning.
