Last week, the rapper formerly known as Bow Wow made what I assume he thought would be an earth shattering announcement-he was leaving the rap game for good. And while Bow Wow may have actually been really upset and emotional about the whole thing, most of us found the “breaking news” to be quite comical.
Bow Wow, an entertainer who was actually very popular at one point in time, and still may be in some peoples’ eyes, has been in the rap game since he was but a mere pup. He dropped his first album in 2001 at the age of 13, and we all have to admit (rather begrudgingly), that the young fellow really did have a good run.
Now, 15 years later, the rapper has announced via Twitter that he’s dropping the mic and leaving “the game” behind for good.

To be clear, Bow Wow, or Shad Moss as he prefers to be called nowadays, hasn’t dropped a buzzworthy album since 2007. With the rapper being unofficially out of the rap game for almost a decade, people are wondering why Bow Wow felt the need to make an official announcement…now.
Bow Wow retires from rapping…
Has he been rapping?

Anywho, needless to say, I’m one of those people.
Here are 8 Things I Care About More than Bow Wow’s Retirement Announcement
1. Biking at the 2016 Olympics.
2. Whoopi Goldberg’s love life.
3. The price of tea in China.
4. What your baby did today on Instagram.
5. How my coworkers’ days are going.
6. Jennifer Lopez’s music.
7. What Donald Trump ate for lunch.
8. The new Harry Potter Movie.
As you all can probably guess, these things are on the lowest level of the “things I care about” todem pole. That should give you an idea of where I stand.
But who knows, I could be being too hard on ol’ Shad. What are your thoughts on Bow Wow’s retirement?
