Well, this was unexpected.
Earlier this year, Shad Moss announced he would step away from the rap game following the release of his Snoop Dogg-produced album titled Nylth. He told fans he planned to retire before his 30th birthday in March of 2017, which means he has about five months left to deliver Nylth, as well as his long-awaited project Underrated. But before all that happens, Shad, formerly known as Bow Wow, announced he and Soulja Boy will drop a collaborative EP called Ignorant Shit. Like we said, totally unexpected.
The rappers shared the news via Instagram on Sunday with the album’s cover art. Soulja Boy and Shad confirmed the record will drop on iTunes this week, with an Ignorant Shit tour following soon after. Shad wrote: “Surprise: #newmusic #bowwow #souljaboy #newalbum ‘Ignorant Shit’ soundtrack 2 a young rich nigga life. Get motivated 🔥 TUESDAY ITUNES @souljaboy IGNORANT SHIT TOUR COMING! #thatway @applemusic BROKE HATING MAFUKAS WONT UNDERSTAND THIS TYPE OF MUSIC SO DONT EVEN LISTEN.”
Soulja also teased one of the project’s songs on Instagram.
Ignorant Shit arrives eight years after the rappers linked up on “Marco Polo,” a track that was meant to appear on Bow Wow’s New Jack City II album with Infamous. Though the song was included on the deluxe edition, it was left out of the original release after Bow Wow and Soulja’s highly publicized beef. Obviously, the two have settled their differences since.
Ignorant Shit drops on iTunes this Tuesday. Shad reassured fans that Underrated will drop next.
