Demanding $10,000, hip hop artist Bow Wow was targeted by a wannabe rapper who hacked into his account on Twitter. The hacker also ordered fans to download his music in order to restore Bow Wow's account.
The mystery cyber thiefÂ broke into the hitmaker's TwitterÂ page on Aug. 21stÂ and bombarded the star's 2.3 million followers with more than a dozen messages.
He ordered fansÂ to download his mixtape and insisted he would only stop the hack attack once he had reached a download limit and was given $10,000.
RepsÂ at Bow Wow's record label Universal Republic contacted the hacker directly via Twitter's message system to try to stop the attack, but the mystery man vowed to continue.
In hisÂ tweets, he wrote, "I got Bow Twitter on smash follow me... I'm the haaacker... this n**ga got b**ches in his DMs. Bow u...Â want [our page]Â back I want $10k... All I want from Bow Wow is 10k and a follow and illÂ stop this."

People are either hating on me or just taking me for a joke. I want 10k and a follow Bow Wow please. This is my dream. I'll be back in the am."
