Rapper/actor/performance artist Shad Moss, a.k.a. Bow Wow, has unveiled his latest project. Monday, Moss tweeted out an image of Death Row artists that had been noticeably edited to include a young photo of Moss himself. "Where it all started," he said when sharing the photo at the fairly inconspicuous time of 9:37 a.m. PT.
Moss followed up the image with claims that he was "on Death Row at 6" and that the Photoshopping was the work of a fan. He also shared additional photos of his pre-Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta days, including a side-by-side with Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre:
To be fair, Snoop Dogg did have a hand in launching Bow Wow's early career. Snoop is also credited with giving Moss the Bow Wow moniker and hooking him up with a run of Chronic Tour shows when Moss was indeed six years old. However, Moss' claims of being formally signed to Death Row are widely disputed, adding another compelling layer to what Moss previously described as his "scientific method" to his social media activity.
"I love it because people don't understand the scientific method to my madness," Moss said on Ebro in the Morning back in May after that now infamous private jet incident. "They really don't understand the scientific method to my madness. Number one, I'm about to have the biggest show on We TV. Period. Period. I'm saying that right now." To fully understand this "scientific method," Moss said at the time, requires inquisitive fans to have access to We TV.
The series is set to return in 2018, meaning answers as to the true meaning behind Moss' latest slice of scientific method-inspired performance art are likely months away.
