When Jermaine Dupri dropped Beware of Dog on September 26, 2000, who would have thought Lil’ Bow Wow would be the certified boss that he has become. Discovered by Snoop and accepted by the entire rap world, his mark on entertainment ushered in a new wave of party with two words: Scream Tour!

Songs like “Bounce with Me” and “Puppy Love” featuring Snoop Dogg, made this album a classic to millennials cutting their teeth in the culture.

Whether Lil’ Bow Wow (now known as Shad Moss) is killing it on the big screen in box office hits like Roll Bounce, Madea’s Big Family or The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift or on prime-time TV like 106 and Park, CSI: Cyber or his new show on WE tv, Growing Up Hip-Hop: Atlanta, he is probably the one of the few kid Hip-Hop rap stars, that has made it to adulthood and still going strong. Congrats to So So Def on this historic release and shout out to Bow Wow, when we getting new music.
