Lil' Bow Wow Causes Big Stir At Record Store

Lil' Bow Wow caused a big scene when he hit New York's HMV Records to help promote the release of his debut album, "Beware Of Dog," this week.

The 13-year-old rapper saw his in-store appearance at the Herald Square branch of HMV shut down on Tuesday after an oversized crowd got a little too enthusiastic about Lil' Bow Wow's performance. The "Bounce With Me" rapper managed to serve up at least a bit of his performance until his in-store was shut down after fans outside HMV began banging on the store's windows.

While he's causing a stir in record stores, Lil' Bow Wow says that his life remains pretty much unchanged when he's around his friends. "They treat me the same," the young rapper told MTV News. "My friends at school, they don't treat me no different. The girls treat me different. 'Go with him, he got money.' Their parents be saying, 'Go with him.'" [RealVideo]

Even more parents may be trying to hook

their daughters up with Lil' Bow Wow, as his debut album hit stores on Tuesday.
