The artist formerly known as Lil' Bow Wow, Shad Moss, went on a confusing rant on Twitter about why he's not voting in 2016. It makes about as much sense as the 2016 Presidential campaign.
In response to a fan, Shad was basically like, "If we could survive Bush, we can survive anything."
Then he dives into Illuminati
Crazy Town territory, with a conspiracy theory that basically implies a select group of famous people control the world.
First comes the hint...
Then the whammy...
This is where things get really weird (which is incredible, because it was already pretty confusing). Twitter user @mfromthesfbay said that Shad should care because of how hard his ancestors fought for the right to vote.
Obviously, disregarding the hundreds of years of struggle during which black people fought to get the right to vote didn't sit well with folks. But Shad confusingly doubled down.
NOTE: Native Americans also struggled for the right to vote. In fact, they weren't granted U.S. citizenship until 1924, because before 1924 the word "native" meant "Well, sure, they were here first, but that doesn't mean they're a citizen."
Shad then went on to describe how white various members of his family are:
Then he posted a picture of his father, just 'cause.
He summed it all up by admitting that he only voted eight years ago because it was the hip thing to do.
So, we think we have this right: Shad Moss a.k.a. Bow Wow isn't voting because he's mixed, the world is ran by the Illuminati, and that it's no longer a hip thing to do.
Dear America, please don't listen to Bow Wow. Kthx!
