Jump To Bow Wow's Stats
From an early age, Shad Gregory Moss must have used the maxim, 'Take No Prisoners.'

That tenacity is reflected in his net worth of $38,561,800.
He cut his teeth in the rap genre by impressing Dr. Dre. and Snoop Dogg at one of their gigs. While at one of their concerts in 1993, they called him on stage and he took over. Being the insightful business man that he is, Snoop recognized the talent right away in him and Dogg christened his new opening act as Lil' Bow Wow. Snoop introduced the young wannabe to the eclectic producer Jeramie Dupri and Lil Bow Wow was on the way to becoming one of raps influential early stars. Moss has yet to disappoint. He and Dupri have collaborated on a multitude of recordings.
