Lil Bow Wow - Bounce With Me ft Xscape
Lil Bow Wow's debut single was featured in both Big Momma's House and Hardball, the movies. It's safe to say that this one started it all, as the young'n flows strong over a hyphy beat by Jermaine Dupri.
Lil Bow Wow - The Future ft R.O.C.
Despite the fact that a 13-year old rapper looks like a gimmick, Lil Bow Wow actually had a pretty great flow for a youngster. Peep his bars on "The Future":
"Ya heard of me
Had to I'm that lil bad dude
Runnin around puttin it down with JD
I'm the A in the hit
I'm the prince of the click
What you think keep makin shorty have them fits
It's the b capital O-W Wow
Like Moe Dee how you like me now
Tryna do it real big like Chris an nem
But if this thing dont work i'm above the rim
Between the legs and behind the back
Yeah i'm small but I got that
Now tell me"
Lil Bow Wow - Take Ya Home
The second single from Doggy Bad was also the theme song for Bow Wow's movie Like Mike. The video takes cues from Hype Williams, who would go on to work with Bow Wow on two videos in 2009.

Before he was acting in "Fast and Furious" movies, before he even made music under the name Bow Wow, Shad Moss was a 13-year old rapper known as Lil Bow Wow.
The concept of a kid rapper is an interesting anomaly. On one hand, rap is a young man's sport, but on the other side of things, how much knowledge can a boy give you before he can even drive a vehicle?
At any rate, Lil Bow Wow was a great success. Not only did he jumpstart a fruitful career in music and film, but he went 2x platinum with his debut album Beware of Dog. With songs about being "The Future" and looking for "Puppy Love," Bow Wow was able to appeal to a huge market. The music was PG enough for parents, but was also musically modern enough with the help of Jermaine Dupri. Let's throw it back to his old-school cuts.
