Review

So So Def mastermind Jermaine Dupri and his production/songwriting counterpart Bryan-Michael Cox collaborated with 13-year-old Lil Bow Wow for Beware of Dog, an endearing album graced with several pop-rap gems. The lead single, "Bounce with Me," is the best of the bunch, a feel-good rap song that's refreshingly PG-rated. "Bow Wow (That's My Name)" is another clear highlight, an enjoyable song featuring Snoop Dogg. Also refreshingly PG-rated is "Ghetto Girls," a ballad with good intentions. It's questionable whether Lil Bow Wow wrote his own rhymes for Beware of Dog (one suspects not). All the same, there's no denying the charm and vocal dexterity of Lil Bow Wow, who proves himself genuinely talented, if not exactly a prodigy. He's pretty cute, too. ~ Jason Birchmeier
