Rapper Bow Wow feels shunned by the music industry, insisting he has more chance of winning an Oscar than a Grammy.
The 22-year-old - real name Shad Gregory Moss - is already a veteran of the music scene, with seven studio albums under his belt.
But despite selling millions of records, the hip-hop star has never won a coveted Grammy Award.
And Bow Wow - who has also acted in a string of TV shows and films - is adamant he has a greater chance of scooping an Academy Award than grabbing one of music's top honours.
He says, "I think I have a better chance at getting an Oscar before a Grammy. The music industry is so fickle, there's so many politics. I think a lot of people don't pay attention to the credits or the artistry no more. I think there's so much concern about what's going on right now instead of the actual artistry. But that's how the record business is. But for acting, I got that covered."
