Early Life, Education, and Career
There is very limited information when it comes to Joie’s life before her rise to fame as a partner of Bow Wow. She hasn’t shared any information about her family and upbringing. It is known that she had a passion for dancing at a young age, and that she attended Torrance High School, one of the oldest high schools in continuous use in the state, with four of its building a part of the US National Register of Historic Places.
The school is often used for filming television and film productions. Some of the shows the school has been used for include “Beverly Hills, 90210” and “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”. The school also once held an international soccer match between the US and Canada. After matriculating from high school, she enrolled at the University of California. The public university system was founded in 1868, with its main campus eventually settling in Berkeley. Currently, the university system has 10 campuses, and a combined student body of over 250,000 students, with over 21,000 faculty members.
After completing her education, Chavis started working as a back-up dancer to many music acts, leading to her meeting with Bow Wow. The two would start a relationship which would last for three years, and they had a child together. Bow Wow started his career under the name Lil’ Bow Wow, rising to fame at the age of 13 when he released his first album “Beware of Dog” in 2000. The following year, he released the album “Doggy Bag”.
In 2003, he then worked on his third album entitled “Unleashed” which marked a difference as he now dropped the “Lil” from his stage name as it was no longer appropriate, given his age and stature.
His career then transitioned to film work, with his first movie appearance being in “All About the Benjamins”. He had his first lead role in “Like Mike” which helped him gain more acting projects such as in “Johnson Family Vacation” and “Roll Bounce”. In 2006, he had a supporting role in “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift”, and also appeared in episodes of “Entourage”. One of his latest projects is the role of Brody Nelson in “CSI: Cyber”, until its cancellation in 2016.
Boyfriend – Future
After many failed attempts to rekindle and restart their romance, Joie eventually moved out, and in 2017 she was rumored to have started a relationship with the rapper named Future. He first got a taste of fame as a part of the Dungeon Family collective, releasing mixtapes under the name “the Future” from 2010 to 2011. This led him to sign a major record label deal with A1 Recordings and Epic Records. He then created his own label called “Freebandz”, and his debut album entitled “Pluto” was released to positive reviews.
He followed it up with the album “Honest” in 2014” which performed better than his debut. In 2014, he released a trio of mixtapes which would help him gain critical acclaim, including “Monster”, “Beast Mod”, and “56 Nights”. He continued releasing over the next few years including “DS2”, “Evol”, “Hndrxx”, and ‘The Wizrd”. All of his recent releases debuted in the top spot of the US Billboard 200 charts. He has also released several singles which have been certified by the RIAA as gold or higher, including “Turn on the Lights”, “Move That Dope”, and “Mask Off”.
