Bow Wow to Release his Final Album on Death Row Records: ‘Close My Music Career Out Where It Began'



It sounds like Bow Wow may finally be ready to retire after more than five years from first announcing it.


During a Twitter Q&A session on Friday morning, the 34-year-old was asked when he'll collaborate with Snoop Dogg, who was a mentor when he was an aspiring artist.


“Spoke to snoop last week. Very soon,” Bow Wow wrote. “My plan is to put my final album on death row and close my music career out where it began. I’m tryna do the d wade and come home and close it out.”



Snoop gave Shad Moss the name Lil' Bow Wow back in the early '90s. Bow Wow's career began with the kid skits on Snoop's debut album Doggystyle in 1993, before merging with Jermaine Dupri's label So So Def in 2000 and releasing his debut album Beware of Dog.


Bow Wow's desire to join the Death Row crew in 2022 isn't a coincidence. It was announced earlier this month that Snoop had purchased the brand from MNRK Music Group, formerly known as eOne Music and acquired in 2019 by Hasbro for $4 billion.


“I am thrilled and appreciative of the opportunity to acquire the iconic and culturally significant Death Row Records brand, which has immense untapped future value,” Snoop said in a statement. “It feels good to have ownership of the label I was part of at the beginning of my career and as one of the founding members.”
