BACKSTAGE RIDER: Hip-Hop

Lil' Bow Wow

Lil' Bow Wow

Just when TSG thought all performers were bothersome loads, along comes our new favorite star, the pint-sized rapper Lil' Bow Wow.

The 17-year-old (real name: Shad Gregory Moss) is a superstar who acts his age, according to Lil's dressing room. As these excerpts from Lil's concert rider show, it's all about Sprite and Hawaiian Punch--there's not a drop of Courvoisier in sight. So we don't begrudge the teenager's request for non-flowering plants, mood lighting, and a sitting room atmosphere.

And we love Lil's specific request for a "push-button type" telephone, since we'd bet the poor kid wouldn't know how to use the rotary variety. (4 pages)
