Bow Wow Reveals Former Drug Addiction

Shad “Bow Wow” Moss is letting the world in, giving an explanation for his recent erratic behavior. Possibly inspired by the sudden shocking death of 26-year-old rapper Mac Miller, Bow Wow reveals he struggled with his own addiction at one point. Mac Miller died of a drug overdose. Bow Wow explained with this Instagram caption:

“@shadmoss Kids this is why drugs are not cool! I was so protected they never wanted the truth out. I was high off lean EVERY DAY EVERY SECOND of my life while doing this album with @omarion and smoking spending damn near 2500 on weed a week! Even he knew i was out of my mind! Whats in my hand? Punch with syrup! The whole UCP TOUR WITH CHRIS I WAS HIGH AND SICK! i missed he chicago show and baltimore show. They said i was dehydrated (MY PR) but i was fucked up dying in the hospital. My body had too much codeine in it. to this day my stomach will never feel the same nor digest the same. Yall know i dont act like this i mean look!!! Just when people think they know you! I WAS A FUCKING DRUG ADDICT at 19-20 Kids STOP THE DRUGS STOP THE PILL POPPING. We want you here. You have so much life.

An example of the erratic behavior Shad is referring to would be when he recently trashed the “Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta” set. He gave this explanation:

“Truth – One of our staff members kept tryna ge tme to do this scene with Brat. I got tired of waiting (which was fine. Brat had a lot of folks to hug and so on…) and [I] wanted to walk Kuyomi to her car…I was told I couldn’t walk her! The f*ck u mean she mine! Ima make sure she safe. I get outside and she gone. Someone gave her false info knowing it would piss me off which led top me cussing out production.”

He continued, giving instructions to GUHH’s production team on how to handle communication with him:

“As the EP of the show respect me as such. Don’t grab my f*cking wrist trying to stop me im not a f*cking child. Family always first…So this how we playing it. Mark, Tara, and Datari my business partners with the show can call me[.] Bosses talk to bosses. You,on set staff, go through my manager. If you need Bow Wow, It’s a process now for you to even speak to me.”

This meltdown took place at Da Brat’s “officially off probation”-party.

So, is Bow Wow’s drug use old or recent news?
