Teenage rapper Bow Wow is "Unleashed" on his third album, due July 22 from Columbia. The first single is the Jazze Pha-produced "Let's Get Down," which features Cash Money artist/founder Baby. A video for "Let's Get Down" will be shot in Atlanta by Bryan Barber.

In addition to Jazze Pha, "Unleashed" features production by the Neptunes, L.T. Hutton, and Bink. Labelmates Amerie and Jagged Edge also appear on the album, which is the follow-up to 2002's "Doggy Bag." That set debuted at No. 2 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and has sold 1.1 million copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan.

On other fronts, the young rapper has wrapped filming on "Johnson Family Vacation" with Cedric the Entertainer, Solange Knowles, and Vanessa Williams, which will be released in the fall. He has just signed on to star in "Mr. President," which is being produced by Will Smith's Overbook Entertainment.

Bow Wow is also slated to star in his own WB network comedy series, further details of which have yet to be released. The artist's new boys clothing line, Shago, arrives Tuesday (June 10) at Macy's and other retailers.
