Shad Gregory Moss was born on March 9, 1987 in Columbus, Ohio to Teresa Rena (Jones) and Alfonso Preston Moss.
When Shad was five, he started his rap career using the nickname "Kid Gangsta." One year later, he took front stage during "The Chronic Tour" and impressed rapper Snoop Dogg, who later gave him the name Lil' Bow Wow.
Bow Wow cited his mixed race as reason enough not to care.
At one point a follower questioned the race of Bow Wow’s dad, saying they had a picture of him.
Bow Wow fired back to ask if the person has ever seen his grandmother.
He also described his father as looking like “a drunk Cuban with no rhythm.” Fly boy right here though dawg!
“I was also blessed that your mother and step-father did an excellent job of raising you to the man you are today,” Moss wrote in the letter posted by .
“I can also say that I am proud that you have done your best to be a father to your daughter.
“I have to say I’m an entertainer because I do it all now.” Take a look at the video below to see Bow Wow talking about his life today.

After saying that “all the world leaders are controlled by an upper power that no one knows about,” Bow Wow revealed that he can’t “rock with that.” But Bow Wow really irked his social media followers after one user reminded him that black people fought years for the right to vote and that he should care about that privilege.
