Child rappers often find themselves topping the Billboard charts, but typically, once they grow up, their careers dwindle. Such was the case for these ten forgotten child stars:

10. Lil Bow Wow

His debut album Beware of Dog sold over 3 million copies, but he was never able to replicate that success. He dropped the Lil from his name in 2002, and in 2014, he performs under his real name, Shad Moss.

Child rappers often lose their popularity when they grow up. This was true for Lil Bow Wow, Shyheim and several other young rap sensations.
