Bow Wow recalls appearing on Snoop Dogg's early works
Rapper Bow Wow entered the entertainment industry at an early age, but he has Snoop Dogg to thank for giving him his earliest exposure. During a recent conversation with HipHopDx, Wow discussed how at only six, he ended up opening Snoop's “Gin & Juice” music video. The rapper is one of the two kids playing on the couch of Snoop's dad at the beginning of the clip.
“We moved to LA right after,” he recalled. “And it was really them starting to implement me around Snoop and the Death Row family. And I guess once they drew up the write-up for the ‘Gin & Juice' video, they was like, ‘Yo, we need some bad kids. Jumping on the couch.' And they was like, ‘Well, we just found this little kid in Ohio we're about to sign: throw him in there.' Which was smart.”
Bow Wow went on to reveal that he also contributed to Snoop Dogg's debut album, Doggstyle, which housed “Gin & Juice.”
“That's me doing all the voices on Doggystyle, Snoop's first album,” he continued. “All the kid voices. It's like I was born to act, born to entertain. I was born to do what I do.”
