*Bow Wow will get his full Shad Moss on tonight with the series premiere of “CSI: Cyber,” the latest spinoff of CBS’s “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” franchise.
This one deals strictly with the FBI’s team of cyber crime investigators out of Quantico, Virginia, headed by Patricia Arquette’s Special Agent Avery Ryan.
Moss plays Special Agent Brody Nelson, a reformed hacker trying to stay out of the dark net as part of Ryan’s team of investigators. In Wed’s pilot, Nelson finds he has to rhyme some things out to make his new job less confusing (“I think better when I talk it out in rhyme,” his character explains.)
Below, Moss blames co-creator and executive producer Anthony Zuiker for making his character rap, and tells us if this trait – ripped from his real life as a hip hop artist – will pop up in every episode.
“CSI: Cyber” airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. starting tonight, March 4.
