The rapper goes down memory lane.
Bow Wow was quite the phenomenon as a youngster. The beginning of his career was stellar as Lil Bow Wow and his change of moniker defined a new era in his success. His third studio album called Unleashed is the very first full-length project he released after dropping the "Lil" from his name. The LP, which came out 15 years ago, was a hit.
The artist took a sliver of time to remember the fan favorite. He posted a short clip of his music video for "My Baby" on Instagram and asked his fans which track off the album did they love the most back in the day.
"15 years ago today Bow Wow’s Gold Selling Album “Unleashed” was released. What was your favorite song? #UNLEASHED 🐐 #HITS#MYBABY #JaggedEdge #Bowwow"
The emoji of a goat was slipped into that caption. Although Bow Wow might not be at the top of the game right now, Unleashed was an unprecedented success for a rap artist of his age. The record was gold certified before online streaming was a consideration in sales numbers.
The album was propped up by big names in the industry. T.I. was credited as a co-writer while the production was handled by the likes of Lil Jon, Swizz Beatz, Jazzy Pha, The Neptunes, and Bink!. Amerie, Baby, Mario and Jagged Edge have also been credited as features on the album.
