Exclusive: Shad Moss Says He’s Following Diddy’s Blueprint For Success But Doing It All At Once

Published

on

After switching his stage name from Bow Wow to Shad Moss, success has seemed to snowball for the 27-year-old rapper/host/actor.

HipHollywood caught up with Shad on the “Green Carpet” at the 2014 BET Hip Hop Awards and asked him how he thinks his life has changed since he switched his name up. “As soon as I made that switch, you know, CSI comes and then my vodka deal comes,” Moss stated.

In August, it was announced that the artist formally known as Bow Wow had signed on to star next to Patricia Arquette and James Van Der Beek on CBS’ upcoming CSI spinoff, CSI: Cyber. To top it off, Shad’s vodka line “NDI” is launching this fall, something he is very proud of. “I’m the first African-American to own, 100% own his vodka, you know what I’m saying. And for me that’s big for a 27-year-old,” he told HipHollywood.

“I’m getting started early … see Puff, not that he waited but I’m just attacking all the sh*t he doing now but I’m doing it way younger. So you know, by the time I’m his age, hopefully, either Imma pass him or I should be right there with him.”

With Diddy currently being 44-years-old, Shad definitely has some time to catch up to him.

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Is Bigger & Better Than The First

Published

If you liked Kingsman:The Secret Service, get ready for The Golden Circle. Hands downs this Kingsman is bigger, badder and better than the first.

Director Matthew Vaughn really takes it up a notch and gives fans much more action and fight sequences. Right off the top we see Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in this amazing car chase scene that will have you applauding as soon as the Prince track ends.

And while we’re talking music the film has an amazing sound track. And if you didnt know, Elton John is also in the film acting and singing some of his classic tunes.

What I also loved were the new editions.  Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Jeff Bridges and Pedro Pascal who play the Statesmen – the American version of the Kingsman –  and the dynamic between the two is pretty comical. Vaughn really explores the difference between the two cultures – mannered men in suits versus macho men in jeans and cowboy boots.

Then there’s Julianne Moore who plays the villain, she’s like this maniacal Martha Stewart esque drug lord and she’s quite good at it.

Now there are some obnoxious moments (like that sex scene between Egerton and Poppy Delevigne).  But I think that’s the point. This franchise is all about turning the spy genre on it’s head and introducing the younger generation to a new type of Bond flick … And we think they are going to love it.
