Overview

"Have you ever seen me?/I'm the future/I represent how it's gonna be/I'm the future," heralds the opening track to Lil Bow Wow's precocious debut disc, Beware of Dog. And if the radio and dance floor-friendly single "Bounce with Me" (featuring vocals by Xscape) is any indication, the 13-year-old wunderkind is well on his way to fulfilling that prophecy. Despite his age, however, Lil Bow Wow is already a rap veteran. At age six, Snoop Doggy Dogg hired the young Ohio native as the opening act for Dr. Dre's Chronic Tour and christened him with his canine moniker. But it's über-producer Jermaine Dupri who gave Bow Wow his big break in hopes of re-creating the success he enjoyed with the adolescent rap duo Kris Kross. As the latest addition to Dupri's So So Def family, the rapid-rhyming Bow Wow holds his own on the bass-booming "Puppy Love," featuring Jagged Edge, the orchestral "Bow Wow (That's My Name)," and the percolating bounce cut "You Know Me" featuring J.D. and Da Brat. Listen up, MTV's Total Request Live viewers: There's a new pup in town, and his name is Lil Bow Wow.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
So So Def mastermind Jermaine Dupri and his production/songwriting counterpart Bryan-Michael Cox collaborated with 13-year-old Lil Bow Wow for Beware of Dog, an endearing album graced with several pop-rap gems. The lead single, "Bounce with Me," is the best of the bunch, a feel-good rap song that's refreshingly PG-rated. "Bow Wow (That's My Name)" is another clear highlight, an enjoyable song featuring Snoop Dogg. Also refreshingly PG-rated is "Ghetto Girls," a ballad with good intentions. It's questionable whether Lil Bow Wow wrote his own rhymes for Beware of Dog (one suspects not). All the same, there's no denying the charm and vocal dexterity of Lil Bow Wow, who proves himself genuinely talented, if not exactly a prodigy. He's pretty cute, too.
Entertainment Weekly - David Browne
...an agreeable balance between Nickelodeon-channel pop and genuine hip-hop.

Lil' Bow Wow has the look and the skills. All he has to do is don't let being famous go to his head and he got it made. I love to sing but, my goal is to be lawyer but, I'd also like to play the drums for a singer/rapper. Anyways BowWow keep doin' yo' thing.

Lil Bow Wow is an example of a real dream come true. Ever since he was six he was rapping. He is the BOMB! But people tell me this if he wasn't hott like he is now would you give anything about him?? I probably would that is if I knew him. I'm 13 too maybe we could hook up whenever your're in Cherry Hill, NJ, but it's not like he ever reads this it's just to make us think it I'm tryin to get in da bizz so when u come around you can bounce wit me bounce wit me.

Lil Bow Wow is is really talented young man. His album BEWARE OF THE DOG is off da hook. I especially like the songs entilted ''You Know Me,'' ''Future,'' and ''Playboy.'' These songs really let us know what he is all about. I am glad that more young women and men are out here in the Music World. I am even more thankful that Lil Bow Wow is out here representing for the youngsters. He is doing a GREAT JOB!! and he is going to be here for a long time. I love you Lil Bow Wow.

I gotta give BowWow his props he is da bomb. I like Bow Wow alot but my friend is in love with him. I saw him on Source Sound Lab and he lit it up. I knew he was going to be a hit when I heard ''Bounce With Me'' for the first time. All I got to say is keep on doin what you doin cuz everybody is lovin it!!!

Lil Bow Wow (known to family as Shad Moss) is a very positive image for us youth of the millenium. His lyrics are profanity free and also set a positive point. I'm a rap fan myself but I don't think you have to curse,talk about sex, drugs, or other explicit content just to earn fans. And that is why Lil Bow Wow is a excellent example for those who want to rap or be in the music industry, they can get an excellent example from Lil Bow Wow himself. And one last thing, his album is excellent and positive and that is why I give it ***** (5) stars.

I just love lil' bow wow! I think excuse me, I know he is cuter than my ex! Bow Wow know he should be happy cause he is so fine and cute. I have his poster on my wall and I look at it every night. See how cuter he gets every day. My sis thinks he is ugly, but I think she has major eye problems. I do not like lil' bow wow because he is a star and has money. I like him for him,and I am just now saying this because of course I am just now seeing,and loving his fine self! I wouldn't know what to do if I saw him in person! Well, my wordz are running long,so peace out, and I love you truly Bow Wow! Your #1 true fan Quanisha Brown!

This young 15 year old rapper is so hott not even the hottest girl could touch him. Lil Bow Wow is probaly one of the best rappers out there in 2002. First he came out with ''Beware Of Dog'', which was a smash hit for the 13 year old. Now, at the age of 15, the rapper has come out with his second album...''Doggy Bag''! This c.d. is topping the charts right now as we speak! It is nice to see a young person's dreams come true...all I have to say now is that We Love You Bow Wow! Keep on doin yo thing..ya heard..
