Bow Wow - Erica Mena - People magazine


In a recent interview with People, Bow Wow (born Shad Moss) revealed he and his fiancée, Erica Mena, are living in his mother’s basement.

Now, before you start clowning him…let me give you the scoop.

Bow Wow shares an eight-bedroom mansion in Atlanta with his mother, Teresa Caldwell, and the 28-year-old rapper-turned-actor says, “It just makes sense.”

First of all the house is too big, but I want to make sure my mom is comfortable forever.

I remember when I first moved to Atlanta and Jermaine Dupree had the same situation. He took part of the house and his mom had the whole rest of it.

I said then that I wanted to have the same set up.

Shad and his future wife live in the fully remodeled basement, while his mother occupies the first and second floor of the house.

It’s like I have a condo downstairs.

I’ve had 100 people there and my mom has been asleep and has never heard the music, screaming, laughter, or drinking. I mean full blown house parties downstairs while she is in the bed asleep. So I’m staying right here.

There’s times where I’ll be down there for three days and we don’t see each other so it’s like I’m out of town even when I’m here.

Bow Wow shared the biggest perk of living in his mama’s basement….

I don’t have to get in the car and drive anywhere to see her. I just come up the stairs and say, ‘What up, Mom.’

Of course the folks on social media had jokes for days and went in on Bow Wow for still living with his mama, but if he (and Erica) like it…I love it.
