By Michael Brent Faulkner, Jr. VINE VOICE on July 18, 2005
Format: Audio CD
Children stars really have a hard time being accepted as truly credible artists in the music industry. Bow Wow, who was a child star rapper, is now in transition to becoming an adult rapper and so naturally, he must shed his young image and try to appeal as harder and edgier. Yet still, he can't just completely change his pop-rap style (which sometimes tends to be corny as a rap-style), which he is known for. It is a difficult situation.

On WANTED, Bow Wow tries to act older by cursing and using terminology such as "n****". His constant use of the "n" word just goes to show you that Bow Wow tries a little too much to act grown up. But, just like his R&B contemporaries Mario (18) and Omarion (20), they all try just a little too hard by adding adult references and "mainstreamed" CDs as I like to call them that don't feature the infamous PARENTAL ADVISORY label (Mario was the most successful in pulling off his CD). The production for the most part is fine, yet sometimes it sounds too much like the song before it, flawing the particular song. For the most part, Bow Wows raps tend to focus too much on his age, being grown up, and on cockiness. Here's how I evaluate each song:

1. "Do You": Bow Wow tries too hard to be older here, the production is ok with a nice choral effect in it. 3/5

2. "Big Dreams": A Much better track than the opening tack that features nice drum programming, a nice serious and believable rap from Bow Wow with a nice hook. It catches your attention, yet compared to The Game's "Dreams" for example, it still doesn't capture a certain emotion or dramaticism that such a performance as "Dreams" by the Game or say "Why" by Jadakiss does. The Album's 3rd best track. 4/5

3. "Let Me Hold You" feat.

Bow Wow really put it down on the album. I love Bow, but his past CDs really haven't done much for me. Unleashed was good, but I was bored with it within 2 weeks. This CD is off the chain. I LOVE IT!!! I wasn't execting it to be as good as it is. There's not one track I don't like. I can put it in and let it play all the way through. The DVD is nice also. It's got his video for "Let Me Hold You" on it and his new video with Ciara "Like You". Bow has really matured and you can tell from his lyrics. He's definitely in a league of his own. He's the best doing what he's doing right now. If you've never like Shad Moss (Bow Wow) you will after you listen to this CD. Especially track #4 ("Fresh AZIMIZ"), it's the hottest song on the album to me. That and "Do What It Do" (track #9). I'm telling you, you've got to cop this album, you'll regret it if you don't.

This cd is off the chain! why is everone saying that it's not! every song on this is great! everone is used to lil' bow wow. IT'S 2005 EVERYONE! BOW WOW IS 18! HE'S GROWN UP!(well almost. he still can't do certain things)What do you think he's supposed 2 do? U expect him 2 make songs like "bounce wit me",and "take ya home"? He has 2 make a whole new image 4 himself... an adult rapper.(well, almost). But anyway, this cd is great! I'm not even gonna make a list of rated songs on this album. Everthing song is a 5!

(I'll make a review Anyway)

1. Do You- 5/5: This song is great. It has a nice beat, refrain, and a nice rap. The main objective to this song is to let all of the rappers who are trying to follow in Bow's footsteps to stop and do their own thing.

2. Big Dreams- 5/5: This song is awesome! It's telling everone who has "big dreams" to keep going and achieve your goal. This song has a nice beat, and rap.

3.Let Me Hold You- 5/5: This song is beatiful.I would tell you about it but possibly you already know. Let Me Hold You has a beatiful beat,rap, and Omarion does an excellent job on the chorus.

4. Fresh Azimiz(As-I'm-Is-)- 5/5: This song is awesome! It has a great beat, rap, and refrain. The main objective to this song is telling you how Bow Wow loves to make other people jealous by flashing all of his material things.

5. Caviar- 4/5: This song is the only one that I don't really enjoy. It has a very nice beat, and refrain. But the part that I don't really like is when Snoop raps.(I'm a big fan of Snoop)But other than that It's cool.

6.Like You-5/5 This song is perfect. It has a nice beat, refrain, and rap. Bow Wow does an excellent job on this. Ciara is awesome to. She puts a nice melody and flow to the song.

C'mon! This dude is a grandiose gimmick, straight up. Most of his fans are kiddies and pimply tweens, and he is the hip-hop/rap equivalent of Britney Spears or Jessica Simspon are to mainstream pop music. Old school and other real rappers must be cringing at this bastardized, diluted crap! But Bow Wow is laughing all the way to the bank, livin' like a king with his bling!

Bow Wow is all grown up. It just seemed like yesterday we saw him in Snoop Dogg's video "Gin And Juice" as a little tyke in the doorway. We've all heard the stories of him rapping on stage during a Snoop concert when he was like 5 years old. Even then, people knew he would be a force to be reckoned with. His teenage years saw the explosion of "Lil Bow Wow" and the throngs of little girlies fallen over each other trying to set their eyes on Bow Weezie. Now we witness him as an adult with a new moniker, and judging from the lyrical content on this album, dropping the "Lil" from his name was a wise move. But, unfortunately for the rapper, he should have found some other adults to help in the direction of Wanted.

Wanted isn't boiling over with vulgarity like the young adult group Pretty Ricky. But the album isn't profound in lyrical wizardry either. "Fresh Azimiz" (pronounced Fresh As I'm Is) sounds extremely dated. I guess when you have somebody like one-hit wonder J-Kwon as a guest, it won't be the best in ingenuity. Even songs like "Caviar" with Snoop Dogg, you have a hard time relating to the subject matter. "B.O.W." features a stripped down version of the beat from "Tipsy" by the aforementioned flash-in-the-pan rapper J-Kwon. "Do What U Do" features the mundane lyrics and beats of Jermaine Dupri.

The production on Wanted is so bad, it's a wonder how nobody jumped up out of their seats in protest while recording these songs. "Go" is an all-out mockery of "Treat Em Right" by Chubb Rock, "Mo Money" sounds like a song by a local wannabe rapper, and "Is That You (P.Y.T)" will probably send Michael Jackson back to the courthouse to sue for defamation! The only decent songs are "Like You" by rumored girlfriend Ciara and "Let Me Love You" with Omarion.
