Who You Mad At? Bow Wow Tries To Go In On Funk Flex Over “Renting” Speculations

Shad Moss aka Bow Wow on Empire

We’ve recently reported that Bow Wow was busted for telling people that he bought a mansion when in reality he is renting it for $12K per month (which is a hefty number, so nobody was even knocking him for that). Although our story was in no way trying to necessarily “clown” the rapper/actor but more so state facts, he still seemed to feel a type of way when people began gassing him on Instagram in his comment section.

An IG user wrote to Shad Moss aka Bow Wow:

“Flex was online clowning you just cause you’re renting. As long as you have a place to sleep fam it don’t matter keep up the grind bro.”

Now in reality, no – Flex was NOT clowning anybody. In fact, I was the one who wrote that article; not Flex. However, Shad apparently didn’t even bother to read what was published and decided to go off on a tangent against Flex simply because of a comment – furthermore letting us see his true colors.
