There’s not a 90’s kid out there who does not remember when he was Lil Bow Wow, the child star rapped his way into our hearts with singles like, Bow Wow (That’s My Name) and Puppy Love. Though today is all about Bow Wow’s height and his other statistics, it won’t hurt to do a quick back ground sweep, just to remember a simpler time.
Most of us had no idea what his real name was, some of us even thought he was born ‘Lil Bow Wow’, but this information is for those who still do not know it. He was born Shad Gregory Moss on March 9, 1987 and here’s a fun fact, before he was Lil Bow Wow, he rapped under the pseudonym ‘Kid Gangsta’ at the age of 6.
It wasn’t till Snoop Dogg saw him perform at a concert in Los Angeles that he upgraded to Lil Bow Wow, but the real boost in his career came when he met his mentor Jermaine Dupri. Not only did he make a name for himself in the music industry but Shad appeared in movies like, All About the Benjamins, Like Mike and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.
These days, the star hosts BET’s 106 & Park and RnB Friday Nights, which is a night time edition of the Australian Hit Network’s radio show RnB Fridays. Now that we are all done with that, it’s time to get back to the matter at hand starting with Bow Wow’s height.
Bow Wow’s Height
Let’s imagine we had a checklist and items like, talent, swag, money, looks and height were on that list, let’s just say that Bow Wow would check of all those items except one, can you guess which one it is? It’s as obvious as sand in the desert, the star is not exactly packing in the height area.
He stands at 5 feet 7 inches and though he may have dropped the ‘Lil’ in his name, for most, he’s quite the ‘Lil’ man. Allow us to sidetrack for a moment, why did he drop the ‘Lil’ in his stage name at the age of 15? He was obviously still ‘Lil’. Here’s what the star told MTV news in an interview.
‘I changed my name because I’m getting older now and it’s too many Lil’s. All these Lil’ rappers, I’m just kind of getting real irritated by it. I said, ‘You know what? Drop the Lil’. Forget it. I’m Bow Wow. Besides, I’m growing up, I’m not little anymore. I really got irritable. It’s all these Lil’ cats, forget it. I’m Bow Wow now. Everything is just ‘Bow Wow,’ no ‘Lil’ Bow Wow.’
Back to the matter at hand, here’s a ‘short’ list of people who stand as tall as the star. Tom Cruise, Justin Bieber and Al Pacino all share Bow Wow’s height.
Bow Wow’s Weight
Hollywood celebrities and celebrities as a whole like to keep it unreal, yes we said it, they stick to strict routines, diets and habit for most of it and also invest a lot of time in giving the rest of us unrealistic body image goals. We are not complaining though, some of us really like to see other people looking really good.
In Bow Wow’s case, he has actually been keeping it real. He looks really good, but not in that Liam Hemsworth unattainable way ( we love Liam by the way, keep building that body Liam!). The star weighs 65 kg and for someone of Bow Wow’s height and stature, this is pretty good. How does he do it?
The star believes in healthy living, but attributes his size to good genes. Although he maintains a regular workout routine and goes to gym regularly, he also loves him some junk food, but he does well not to over indulge. He may not be into body building but he is well toned and you can bet that his body fat is on the low side.
Bow Wow’s Body Measurements
In addition to Bow Wow’s height and weight, here’s some of his other body statistics. His chest measures 38 inches, his waist is 30 inches and his biceps are 12 inches.
As long as the celebrity has feet, expect his/her shoe size here. Bow Wow wears a US size 10, European size 43 and UK size 9.5.
