It’s been quite a rough year for Bow Wow, but the rapper took to Instagram recently to share a special father-daughter moment with his child, Shai Moss.

Regardless of what naysayers say about Bow Wow, they can’t say that he hasn’t had one of the most prolific careers in entertainment. He accomplished more by age 15 than most rappers will in their entire careers. From platinum records to blockbuster movies to his sold-out scream tours and his unforgettable days as Mr. 106 and Park, he doesn’t have anything to prove. Still, it makes perfect sense that the 7-year-old cussing on Snoop’s debut album, Doggystyle, years ago would today at 31 be one of the executive producers on WE TV’s hit reality series “Growing Up Hip Hop: Atlanta.” If anyone is a living testimony of what growing up hip-hop looks like, the good vs bad, the highs vs lows, the pandemonium vs silence, it’s Bow Wow.

Bow Wow, 31, looked smitten with Shai as he held on to her hand. The rapper wore a white t-shirt and black sweatpants. He also went casual with a pair of slides, white socks, and a red scarf.
Shai, on the other hand, chose a more stylish look with a sequin tracksuit and trendy sneakers. Her curly, brown hair was also styled beautifully to one side.

Where do i begin. You are so special, and such an exceptional little girl. God has truly blessed me, and i am quickly reminded of that each time i look at you. I couldn’t have asked for a better mini me/bff. Your character and grace blows me away at just 7 years old, and anyone who knows me knows how hard i work so that you can have the best life. Momma loves you so much, but you know that already. Happy birthday baby! 🎉❤️ #Shaiturns7
Bow Wow informed fans in the caption that he got to achieve something he has always wanted to, and used the opportunity to thank his baby mama, Joie Chavis.
“I teared up before I took the stage! I accomplished what I always wanted and that was for my baby to see her daddy hit the stage. My lil diva. Thank you @joiechavis for everything you do. My lil princess. Love you phat momma.”
In a June interview with Rolling Out, Bow Wow credited his daughter for changing his attitude toward women. The “Like Mike” actor, who does not have the best reputation with his numerous Exes, admitted:
“After I had my daughter, I just started looking at women differently. Like I wanted to make sure they were ok and I would make sure everyone with me respected the girls around. I just started treating them with more respect and paying more attention to my intentions with them.”
Bow Wow also said the seven-year-old helped him treat his current girlfriend, Kiyomi Leslie, with more respect.
"Even with Kiyomi when we first met I wanted her to know that I wasn’t just trying to ‘hit’ or take advantage. I wanted to make sure she was ok,” he said.
Sadly, Bow Wow revealed in August that he and Kiyomi had lost their unborn child, a son. The now-deleted tweet read:
“Don’t really care. The media crucifies me. I’m the most hated. Every girl I gave my heart to it failed. My dad is an alcoholic and is now sick. I lost my son this year! I’m over everything. Mentally I feel detached I’m in so much pain bro.”
