First Lil Bow Wow dropped the Lil from his name simply becoming Bow Wow to signify him becoming a man. Now that he’s a father, and the host of 106 & Park he’s announced another name change to go into effect after the BET Awards.

Musically irrelevant rapper Bow Wow (don’t worry the BET Awards haven’t passed yet, so it’s safe to call him that) took to his Instagram account to announce his name change.

Bow Wow Name Change Shad Moss

So there you have it, after the BET Awards, make sure you call Bow Wow by his government name — Shad Moss. He is serious y’all.

The BET Awards air Sunday June 29th at 8PM/7C.
