Bow Wow ‘getting the bag’ with new businesses and upcoming restaurant

ROLLINGOUT — There is a reason why businessman Shad Moss has flung aside the long-held moniker of “Bow Wow” like an old jacket. First of all, he said he retired from the genre three years ago, according to the Los Angeles Times, although, like boxers, rappers are prone to make comebacks even after they drop the mic. Just as importantly, Moss wants to be viewed as a bona fide businessman and the Bow Wow sobriquet just wasn’t cutting it for him anymore.

There is a reason why businessman Shad Moss has flung aside the long-held moniker of “Bow Wow” like an old jacket.

First of all, he said he retired from the genre three years ago, according to the Los Angeles Times, although, like boxers, rappers are prone to make comebacks even after they drop the mic. Just as importantly, Moss wants to be viewed as a bona fide businessman and the Bow Wow sobriquet just wasn’t cutting it for him anymore.

The Buckeye-born and bred Moss (Columbus, Ohio), 32, is able to boast of his business ventures, which he unabashedly does at regular intervals, which he says includes having the No. 1 selling durag line in the market.

In addition to his duties as executive producer of the hit reality TV show “Growing Up Hip Hop,” Moss is working on producing his first movie for TV One, according to The Jasmine Brand. And he is about to drop his own wave control brush and pomade.

And then there is the matter of enrolling his daughter in acting classes, for which she has shown that she inherited some of her father’s swag:

The biggest project that he is going to undertake in the future is the opening of his restaurant. He has yet to divulge the name of the establishment or the kind of eatery it will be or where it will be located. But Moss is letting folks know that he is handling his.

Geoffrey's Inner Circle

For more than 30 years Geoffrey Pete ‘s business, Geoffrey’s Inner Circle, has been a cultural hub because of its full-service restaurant, live entertainment, nightclub parties, jazz music and community special occasion events. Faith-based organizations have also rented the spacious facilities for services and concerts. Their full-service restaurant, bar and live entertainment business along with their tenants and multilevel event rental spaces have been severely interrupted and devastated by the COVID 19 lockdowns and restrictions.

Whether it was Paul Mooney, Faye Carroll, Sugar Pie or Jay-Z performing or whether it was Congresswoman Barbara Lee, Mayor Elihu Harris, or Kamala Harris along with many of the Bay area’s elected officials they too have come to bask in the limelight of Geoffrey’s Inner Circle.

Thanks to a group of customers and supporters a Go Fund Me page has been opened for the public to contribute to support Geoffrey’s Inner Circle https://gofund.me/b2541419.
