Jermaine Dupri sure knows how to pick underage cash cows. In the early '90s he made stars of the adolescent rap duo Kriss Kross, and almost a decade later, Dupri is riding the kiddie hip-hop train all the way to the bank with Lil' Bow Wow.

Overview

Jermaine Dupri sure knows how to pick underage cash cows. In the early '90s he made stars of the adolescent rap duo Kriss Kross, and almost a decade later, Dupri is riding the kiddie hip-hop train all the way to the bank with Lil' Bow Wow. On Bow Wow's sophomore disc, the squeaky-clean 14-year-old keeps the party vibes flowing with funky, staccato Dupri-produced beats ("The Wickedest," "Off the Glass") and allusions to the opposite sex ("Perfect Girl"). On the lead single, "Thank You," Bow Wow even shows his fans some love with a little help from labelmates Jagged Edge and newcomer Fondisha. Later, on "All I Know," over a sample of New Edition's "Candy Girl" -- the song that put an underage Bobby Brown on the map -- he professes his puppy love for a lucky TRL-aged fan. But Bow Wow has aspirations of being more than a novelty act. With a Neptunes beat that recalls DC's infectious go-go grooves, Bow Wow shows that he's aware of the potential pitfalls of youthful fame with lines like, "I ain't going out like Todd Bridges on Different Strokes." Well, with JD as his mentor and providing the A-game sonics, Bow Wow's bark should be heard loudly for a long time to come.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Lil Bow Wow's second album, Doggy Bag, banks on the pop-rap success of the So So Def upstart's debut album, Beware of Dog (2000). Producer/songwriters Jermaine Dupri and Bryan-Michael Cox are once again at the helm, and in the tradition of pop-rap, they rely primarily on past hits for their ideas. For example, the album intro, "We Want Weezy," is an interpolation of the Bootsy Collins classic (already interpolated once by Dr. Dre and Eazy-E); the lead single, "Thank You," prominently samples the Cars; "Up in Here" is a rehash of DMX's recent hit "Party Up (Up in Here)"; "All I Know" interpolates New Edition's "Candy Girl"; and so on. If you enjoy pop-rap at its most obvious, Doggy Bag is a lot of fun, even though it's an awfully brief album, featuring only nine actual songs (if you don't count the intro and interludes). Thankfully those nine songs all have their charms. A special mention should be made for "Take Ya Home," which is produced by the Neptunes rather than Dupri/Cox and is the highlight of the album.

Bow Wow's new album is off da hinges! His last album, Beware of Dog went triple platinum (whoa!) and I'm sure this one will do even better! Some of his hits include All I Know, Crazy, and my favorite track, Take Ya Home. I can tell he put a lot of work into the album, so you will definately get your money's worth. If you don't already have the album, GET IT! I'm tellin' ya'll, the album is HOT! Bow Wow's got that fire, and he's proven himself to be the best music artist of all time!

I love the CD. It kind of shows another side of him with ''All I know'' and the interlude ''Perfect Girl'' I think he could go multi-platinum just being who he is. This CD shows the real him
