Lil' Bow Wow will begin sniffing out his second album in an Atlanta studio during the next couple of weeks.
The 14-year-old rapper hopes to have the as-yet-untitled disc out in November, his spokesperson said.
In the meantime, he's still throwing bones from his double-platinum debut, Beware of Dog (2000), releasing its fourth single, "Ghetto Girls," and accompanying video this week.
Meanwhile, "Bow Wow (That's My Name)" is #11 in its 26th week on the Billboard Hot Rap Singles chart after spending time at #1.
That song won Lil' Bow Wow the Viewer's Choice award at the inaugural Black Entertainment Television Awards in Las Vegas Tuesday night (see "Destiny's Child, Outkast, Lil' Bow Wow Winners At BET Awards"). (MTVi's parent company, Viacom, also owns Black Entertainment Television.)
He is scheduled to perform "Ghetto Girls" Wednesday (June 20) during Fox's "Teen Choice Presents: Teenapalooza" show.
