Bow Wow stars in "Madea's Big Happy Family," alongside Tyler Perry and Loretta Devine, as Byron.

It was clear from an early age that Shad "Bow Wow" Moss was destined for the spotlight. At age five, Shad Moss was discovered by Snoop Dogg and featured on the icon's groundbreaking "Doggystyle" album. Renamed Bow Wow, for his solo debut, he teamed up with chart-topping/hit-making producer Jermaine Dupri to release "Beware of Dog" in 2000, the kickoff to a string of platinum and gold albums that spawned six #1 singles and platinum songs.

He is the "Youngest Solo Rapper to Ever Hit No. 1," as recognized by the Guinness World Records. Bow Wow has sold more than 10 million albums to date and 14 million digital assets.

On his sophomore release, "Doggy Bag," Bow Wow again collaborated with So So Def CEO Jermaine Dupri, and the first single from that CD, "Thank You," was dedicated to his many fans. Along with his own albums, Bow Wow popped up on the soundtracks for the films Wild Wild West and Big Momma's House. Bow Wow's most recent album, "Wanted," features the number-one hit singles "Let Me Hold You," featuring Omarion, as well as "Like You," featuring Ciara. On its way to double-platinum status, "Wanted," is one of Bow Wow's most successful albums to date. Bow Wow received Hollywood Life's "Young Hollywood" award for Most Exciting Movie Crossover artist.

Bow Wow's 2001 Scream Tour sold out across the country, and he recently headlined the summer Scream IV Tour—which grossed more than $20 million- continuing its reign as the number-one teen-heartthrob tour in history.

With his multi-platinum pedigree, he has found a new home with Cash Money/Universal Republic Records and is scheduled to drop his eighth studio album in 2011. Bow Wow was the first rap artist of his generation to become a legitimate entertainer, excelling as rapper, stage performer and actor. He played a starring role in the hit motion picture "The Lottery Ticket," alongside Ice Cube which hit theaters in August 2010. He also had a recurring role in the HBO hit "Entourage," which wrapped its seventh season in the fall of 2010. He has matured as an acting talent with an impressive list of credits including: "Hurricane Season" (2009), "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift" (2006), "Roll Bounce" (2005), "Johnson Family Vacation" (2004), "Like Mike" (2002, his first movie, grossed $35 million its first week in theaters), as well as the television series "Smallville" (2006).

Always a game changer, in 2008, Bow Wow used his celebrity voice and kicked off his "Walk Across America" tour in Atlanta to encourage voter registration and to reinforce the importance of youth voter participation. His efforts resulted in more than 100,000 registered voters and continues to be a voice in the community for organizations that affect young people.
