Bow Wow Talks Growing Up on ‘Oprah: Where Are They Now?’

Bow Wow and Shai Moss

Bow Wow has grown up in the public eye. Ten years making his appearance on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” at the age of 16, the rapper formerly known as Lil Bow Wow caught up with Oprah on her OWN show “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” He spoke about his transition from a child star to a young man, and what he’s learned along the way.

“I’m so laid-back and just chill. I feel like now I’m at that point in my life where [money] doesn’t identify who I am,” said Bow, who had a $6,000-per-month allowance as a teen.

In 2011, the 26-year-old became a father to his daughter Shai Moss. “I want to make sure that she’s able to do the things that I wasn’t able to do,” said Bow.

He also takes Oprah’s cameras into the studio and on set of his day job hosting “106 & Park.”

“I can’t even say I’m a rapper or I’m an actor,” he said. “I have to say I’m an entertainer because I do it all now.”

    Who cares about Bow wow. I want to see Lil’ Kim on Oprah. She can talk about Biggies death, her abortion, music, plastic surgury, fashion and how she went to prison for Junior mafia.

    How can he say he isn’t about jewelry and being flashy and then the first thing he sings about in the booth, is about the cost of his wrists?

    @Shaka zulu, I know… He’s talking about growing up but if you listen to the music he was making as a teenager and compare them to his music he’s making now, I’m pretty sure that he got LESS mature.
