Shad Moss, a.k.a. Bow Wow, is a proud father who intends to give his daughter every opportunity in life. In a recent interview with Hip Hop Wired, Bow Wow said that fatherhood has changed him for the better. “It just really made me go harder,” says Moss, “It just made me understand life a little bit more. One thing that it definitely taught me was some patience, and I’m definitely still working on that. She’s the best thing to happen to me. A woman will tell you, the dude gon’ always be the same, it’s the woman that got to go through that [change]. For me, I feel that same, no different than who I was three, four years ago.”
Although he was a bit rowdy in his late teen years, Bow Wow is not nervous about his baby girl dating someone like him. As he explains, “It’s just my job to make sure I give her the game that she needs to survive. Make sure that I tell her to watch out for guys like I was when I was 17 and 18, and wild. It’s gonna be hard for a little guy to come around because I got all the game, daddy got it all! I’m just gon’ put it all in her hands so she can see it and she gon’ know. She me all over again, she gon’ have everything I got, plus more.”
Bow Wow’s ex-girlfriend Joie Chavis gave birth to baby Shai last year. She is the former couple’s only child together.
