"Bow wows age"[edit]

Bow wow is 26 years old. It says he was born march 9th 1987. That would make him 25, he is listed as 24 on his wiki page. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ryan Emery4 (talkcontribs) 05:12, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

Edit request "Early Life"[edit]

In 1993 he attended "The Chronic Tour" performed by Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg. He got the chance to get on stage & show off his rapping skills. As he was among the audience who were called to come to the stage, the enthusiastic boy eagerly displayed his rhyming skills in front of the crowd without any hesitation. Impressed by Snoop Dogg he was called backstage & he was offered the job to finish off the tour as the opening act. Snoop ended up giving him the name "Lil' Bow Wow". He was later signed to "Death Row Records". During that year Suge Knight gave him the chance to appear on the "Arsenio Hall Show" to show his skills to the world. [1] He was on Snoop's debut album "Doggystyle" for a skit called "Betta Ask Somebody". He made a cameo in the video "Gin and Juice" as one of the kids jumping on the couch. He was set to have a song on the "Murder Was the Case" soundtrack but was denied due to his explicit language. He recorded more songs with the Death Row roster but were unreleased for the same reason. One his songs were released on the Death Row compilation "20 to Life: Vol. 1".

In 1998 he & his mother got a call from a representative of Epic Records to fly them out to Atlanta to meet Jermaine Dupri. One night while Jermaine Dupri was perfoming the song "Money Ain't a Thang" with Jay-Z, Bow Wow had asked Jermaine could he perform with them. Hesitant at first he Jermaine let Bow Wow come out & perform with them. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Akid90s (talkcontribs) 07:52, 30 March 2014 (UTC)

"Music Producer"[edit]

The introductory section and infobox have Bow Wow listed as a music producer, however there's no assertion of this in the article at all - only of him being a writer and performer. Can someone cite these claims? It's all too easy to group rappers with producers (and mistaking producers with engineers). Booglamay (talk) 21:31, July 2008 (UTC)

Personal life[edit]

"well i have to say i married my beautiful bride that lives in washington dc.her name is Adrena Autumn Si'mone Dorsey.i love to death and nothing will ever separate us.she is the love of my life." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.12.116.54 (talk) 22:01, 11 March 2009 (UTC)

Pedigree vs. New Jack city pt. 2[edit]

Under no research can i find that bow wow has announced he changed the title from Pedigree to New Jack City pt. 2. Even on his official myspace, it still remains that the album is titled "Pedigree". In my research, the album title was not changed, where did you find such source that lead you to believe he changed the title? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.233.102.104 (talk) 02:53, 20 September 2008 (UTC)

eg. here: http://realtalkny.uproxx.com/2008/09/topic/artists/bow-wow/bow-wows-7th-album-new-jack-city-part-2-drops-december-8th/ The same video can be seen on Bow Wow`s web page.ABC101090 (talk) 22:27, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

Change the picture[edit]

I believe that the defult picture should be changed to something more appropiate. That fact that the defult of bow wow grabbing his private parts is just unessessary. Can someone change that picture? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Apawk (talkcontribs) 13:47, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Retirement[edit]

if this bum crease makes his retirement album also stating he is lil mama with music making. Shouldn't his "Year Active" be changed to 1993 - 2009??? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 75.0.200.51 (talk) 03:53, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Record label[edit]

It says he's part of Young Money, but as of July 20 2009, he is not part of any label. His twitter, twitter.com/bowwow614, says that he's trying to choose between Grand Hustle and So So Def. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.62.252.145 (talk) 15:29, 20 July 2009 (UTC)

Grand Hustle[edit]

He is officially signed to Grand Hustle/ Atlantic. It says on his twitter. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.147.4.59 (talk) 18:27, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit]

{{editsemiprotected}} The sentence about homosexuality at the beginning of the page is vandalism and should be deleted, right? Sietschie (talk) 10:18, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Done Welcome and thanks for pointing that out. (...pointing that out out?) Celestra (talk) 15:26, 16 August 2009 (UTC)

Why Not Put Bow Wow's Official Mixtapes get now?[edit]

He has already released 3 mixtapes(Half Man Half Dog Vol.1, Half Man Half Dog Vol.2, Greenlight Vol.1). And Greenlight Vol.2 will be released in December. Why not write this verified information on wikipage? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 218.200.50.234 (talk) 19:41, 3 October 2009 (UTC) justin beiber sucks — Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.69.25.76 (talk) 00:45, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

Picture[edit]

Bow Wow's Article currently has no picture, can anyone please add a picture? In his early life category can someput the picture of him, Snoop Dogg, & Dr. Dre then in in on the "Beware of Dog" can someone put the picture of him, Jermaine Durpi, & Jay-Z. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ramy Ramz69 (talkcontribs) 16:58, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

Movie Role[edit]

For Lottery Ticket, he has the Lead Role, so could someone please add that?

Summary[edit]

He appeared in multiple episodes of the HBO series Entourage...not just one. He was involved in a multiple episode story arc involving Eric. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.231.107.84 (talk) 17:46, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

Possible Mistakes[edit]

Hello,

Just letting you guys know that someone who knows about Bow Wow might want to check the article for errors. Someone vandalized it earlier and although I fixed as many errors as I could find, there might be some that I missed because I don't know that much about Bow Wow.

Sorry for troubling you all about this. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.105.147.203 (talk) 04:05, 16 December 2010 (UTC)

Wiener = Mistake[edit]

In the Early life section: "At age three, he became interested in wiener." that's a joke, or?

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Move. Jafeluv (talk) 12:35, 23 June 2011 (UTC)


Bow WowBow Wow (rapper)Bow Wow (band) is a well known and highly influential band, well connected with hard rock, they get just a few more ghits [1] [2] so it appears that there is no primary meaning. Therefore the DAB should be at Bow Wow and both the rapper and band disambiguated. See also Talk:Bow Wow (band)#Possible move of the DAB. Andrewa (talk) 01:39, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

Survey[edit]

  • comment the rock band does not get more, since the search is faulty, as it gets alot of things not related to the band that is described in our article. [3] 65.94.47.63 (talk) 02:24, 13 June 2011 (UTC)
    • Agree they are pretty naive searches, with many extraneous ghits, but I thought (and still think) that they were adequate for the purpose. Being a bit more careful in searching for the rapper [4] to try to exclude irrelevant ghits results in him getting even fewer ghits than does the band in your similarly revised search. Interested in any other comparisons. Andrewa (talk) 04:56, 13 June 2011 (UTC)
    • Note also that what is proposed is not that the band is the primary topic, but that neither is. So it doesn't matter at all which gets more, what matters is that neither gets enough to suggest that it might be the primary topic. Andrewa (talk) 04:56, 13 June 2011 (UTC)
      • Yes, disambiguation seems best, the argument presented for it is not the best though. 65.94.47.63 (talk) 09:23, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Support disambiguation, I still think of the rapper as Lil' Bow Wow. 65.94.47.63 (talk) 09:23, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Support neither are enough to be the primary topic. Xfansd (talk) 16:12, 14 June 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose Google search results are almost entirely faulty. I think they have a random number generator somewhere up at Google headquarters. Marcus Qwertyus 01:09, 18 June 2011 (UTC)
    • An interesting claim, but is there any evidence that the rapper is the primary meaning? Surely, in the absence of any, we should default to the position that there isn't one, as proposed? Then the vexed issue of the validity of the interpretation of the google test (and I'm not entirely disagreeing with you, but I do note the almost entirely in your claim) doesn't come into it. Andrewa (talk) 07:39, 21 June 2011 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 11 May 2014[edit]

The horrible infobox grammar, where it says alternate names, should be Mister 106 & Park (http://rapgenius.com/1160725). And filmography section is missing his Scary Movie V appearance (check out the Internet Movie Database). 166.205.55.28 (talk) 21:22, 11 May 2014 (UTC)

Red information icon with gradient background.svg Not done for now: Please reword your request in a "please change X to Y" and IMDb is not a reliable source, so you will need to find another source for that. — {{U|Technical 13}} (tec) 15:03, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
Excuse me, have you watched the movie? Heres a source, http://www.cinemablend.com/m/Scary-Movie-V-5718.html. Look for Shad Moss aka Bow Wow. Also, in the infobox, change ",Mr.106 & park" to "Mister 106 & Park". The grammar is so off.
