1) He's been rapping since he was three years old.
It's easy to make jokes about the fact that Bow Wow used to have the word "Lil" attached to his rap moniker. It's also easy to make jokes about the fact that his first three or four albums were filled with songs that were tailored to the same audience Justin Bieber's captivating these days. But you can't overlook the fact that Bow Wow has been rapping since he was three. That means he didn't jump into rap to get rich, to meet girls or to become famous. He got into it because that's what he loved to do. Did he use his youth to appeal to a certain audience once he got on? Of course. But judging by the way he got into the game, his intentions have always been good when it comes to rapping.
