I know you didn’t think I was going to let this go knowing that I try to write for everyone that has made an impact coming out of Ohio.
State and Music:
Shad Moss a.k.a Bow Wow hails from Columbus, Ohio and became an accomplished rapper and movie star in his own right. In fact his moniker Lil Bow Wow came from none other than Snoop Dogg. This young man has been certified platinum with his second cd Doggy Bag which peaked at #11 on the Billboard 200 and #2 on the Top R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart (this before the age of the internet) He has been in videos with the likes of Ciara, Jagged Edge, Omarion, Jermaine Dupree we can go on an on. In fact one of my favorite songs is Shorty Like Mine and Like You.
Roll Bounce, no really Roll Bounce! This is one of my favorite movies. He also starred in 2010’s Lottery Ticket with Ice Cube. Recently he’s ben in Madea’s Big Happy Family and my personal favorite part of the franchise Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift to name a few of his accomplishments.
Shad Moss was a cast member in the HBO show Entourage, he also was a host on BET’s 106 & Park and recently Growing up Hip Hop: Atlanta. The man has had consistent work.
Bow Wow is a triple threat, if he were any other entertainer that’s what we would we be referring to him as. What’s the problem? It is because he’s from an underdog state? Or because he is not a “gangsta rapper?” Whatever the case may be.. we celebrate him here, this “kid” from Ohio has done well. And we start with this blog.
