 Bow Wow has spoken about his appearance in Snoop Dogg‘s classic “Gin & Juice” video, explaining that it was simply a matter of being in the right place, at the right time.

A six-year-old Lil Bow Wow, as he was known then, opened the video as one of three little boys jumping on Snoop’s parents’ couch. Speaking to HipHopDX in a new interview, Bow Wow said the video was shot shortly after he was discovered along Dr. Dre‘s The Chronic Tour in 1993.

“We moved to LA right after,” he explained. “And it was really them starting to implement me around Snoop and the Death Row family. And I guess once they drew up the write-up for the ‘Gin & Juice’ video, they was like, ‘Yo, we need some bad kids. Jumping on the couch.’ And they was like, ‘Well, we just found this little kid in Ohio we’re about to sign: throw him in there.’ Which was smart.”

That wasn’t his only contribution to Snoop Dogg’s multiplatinum debut project. Bow Wow revealed that he also made a cameo on the album itself.

“That’s me doing all the voices on Doggystyle, Snoop’s first album,” he added. “All the kid voices. It’s like I was born to act, born to entertain. I was born to do what I do.”
