Bow Wow is a rapper born in Columbus, Ohio, and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, he now resides in Miami, Florida. Bow Wow has been rapping ever since he was 5 years old, he was discovered by rappers/producers Snoop Dogg & Dr. Dre on one of their chronic tours in Columbus, Ohio. He was soon signed to Suge Knight & Dr. Dre's Death Row Records, but that was short lived, by the time he was 11 years old he met with rapper/producer Jermaine Dupri, and soon signed with his So So Def Records, this record label was where Bow Wow gained much of his success, due to the fact that most of the songs he recorded while on Death Row Records didn't get put out till years later, he moved to So So Def Records because rappers Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre felt that that label would be a better fit for him, and they didn't wanna expose him to all the negativity that Death Row Records artists went through. Nowadays Bow Wow is one of the newest artists signed to Young Money Cash Money Records. Bow Wow also has his own record label called Bow Down Records that he founded a couple years ago.
