TV Scoop: Bow Wow Is Getting A New Late Night Talk Show, Says He's Not Inspired To Rap Anymore

Shad Moss a.k.a Bow Wow revealed he's getting his own TV show!

"First time people saw me was on Arsenio Hall show," he said. "So its only right I go back to where it started. First let me thank him by paving the way because i wouldn't have did what I'm about to do. I been quietly working on a project that I felt was needed." 

He took to Instagram earlier to announce he's coming to late night television. The former 106 & Park said he didn't have as much control as he wanted to over the video countdown show:

"When I hosted 106 i knew then i could do whatever (talent wise) but i did not own 106 i had little control and i gots to be the man because im a creator. So when i cant be creative well... But i learned so much to the point i will have my own late night show coming. I get to run my own show content etc..."

He also said his show won't be like anything on TV and he wants his first guest to be Kobe Bryant.

He continued, "We will have the best producers and show runners in the game! Wont be like ANYTHING ON TV. Its going to be a show YOU HAVE TO WATCH. Music will play an important key to the show."

"I felt i HAD to do this. Theres no platform for hip hop artist no more. Where can they go to promote on tv other than revolt (they still growing) thats crazy 1 outlet?!! Music videos became less important. College kids and high school students have nothing at 10pm to really look forward to. Where my guest could be Kendrick lamar w j cole performing live. To having Michelle Obama on."

"I found my stride. I want to help the culture and this is my way of giving back to the game that made me! Get ready i'm going through set designs now. REMEMBER I NEVER WANTED TO BE THE BEST RAPPER, but the GREATEST MULTI ENTERTAINER OF ALL TIME FOR MY ERA. Ps.. I WANT MY FIRST GUEST TO BE NONE OTHER THAN LAKER LEGEND KOBE BRYANT! i want to kixk the show off w him."

Bow Wow, who is currently starring in CBS's CSI: Cyber, also revealed he's done with making music and says he's not inspired to rap anymore.
