Shad Moss, better known for his stage name Bow Wow, has become the latest celebrity to make an appearance on the social media app Clubhouse. The rapper joined a chatroom on Clubhouse on Sunday (Dec. 6) and the welcome party for the star began trending on Twitter after people started sharing commentary of the conversation.
The Like Mike actor was reportedly talking about how his career as a child star took off, and although he has dealt with some controversy in his personal life and has been the butt of many jokes on social media, fans were able to give the rapper his praise for his many accomplishments.
The social media app consists of rooms where audio chats take place and anyone can start them and anyone who is in the invite-only app can join them. So far, there have been conversations from people in the entertainment industry, including Kevin Hart and popular music producers, who have had conversations with people regarding their careers.
Fans shared their thoughts on the Bow Wow conversation, in which he shared details and the backstory about his rise to fame, and after hearing all that he has been through in his career, many agreed that he is a “legend.”
One of the unique aspects of the app is that celebrities can speak openly, since it is against the rules for the conversations to be recorded, and they can share stories from their past, including ones that the public had not known about previously. One user shared that Bow Wow shared facts about his music career, revealing that his joint album Face Off with Omarion released in December 2007, was originally intended to be with himself and all of B2K.
The “Bounce With Me” rapper started his career when he was just a child. He was discovered by Snoop Dogg and later signed to Jermaine Dupri’s So So Def Recordings. He started off as Lil’ Bow Wow, and released his first album, Beware of Dog, in 2000 at just 13 years old, and his career took off. His following was huge and he caused pandemonium wherever he went, and during the chat, some compared his level of fame to Michael Jackson’s when he was part of The Jackson 5.
Moss went onto releasing multiple albums, hit songs and soon began an acting career starring in films like Like Mike, Roll Bounce, The Lottery Ticket, and more. Hearing him discuss his path in the industry and in Hollywood seems to have sparked a new level of respect that fans had perhaps not had for him before or forgot about due to his recent antics.
Bow Wow accomplished so much in his life already before he was even an adult, and that alone is enough reason for him to be deserving of the praise he is now receiving. Check out some more tweets people shared after joining the Bow Wow room on Clubhouse.
