Bow Wow has announced that he is retiring from the music industry, which is possibly the first time you’ve realised that Bow Wow was still in the music industry for several years.

In a series of tweets, the 29 year old rapper said that he’d always planned to retire before he was 30. Which might make you wonder why he bothered signing that new deal with Bad Boy Records last year. Well, in order to release his final album, of course.

“I always said years ago I’d retire from music before 30”, he wrote. “I just can’t see myself at 30 years old rapping. Made over 20 million off rap. Why be greedy? I’m good with everything I accomplished. I made it to the White House”.

In an Instagram post, he added: “My last album will be executive produced by my uncle Snoop and myself. Since he brought me in the game, it’s only right I involve him and end it with him. It’s official! This shit bout to bang on mommas! And we aiming and I’m talking reckless on this album. Nobody safe. The title of my final album [is] ‘NYLTH’.

Bow Wow’s last album, ‘New Jack City II’, was released in 2009. Since then, he’s built up a career in acting, both in TV and film. He will use his proper break from music to focus further on this and develop his own TV shows apparently.
