Lil' Bow Wow released his first album when he was 13 years old, after he caught the eye of Snoop Dogg by rapping onstage at a concert in L.A. He dropped the "Lil" from his stage name in 2002, and played the lead role in the movie "Like Mike." Since then, Bow Wow has made several guest appearances in T.V. shows such as HBO's "Entourage" and ABC's "Ugly Betty." In 2011, he confirmed rumors that he had previously denied of fathering a baby girl with his ex-girlfriend.
