Lil Wayne
Tha Carter II

Although there has been much debate on the subject of who is or who isn’t the King of the South, Lil Wayne isnt worried about all the fuss as to who really lays claim to the title. As a veteran rap star, budding entrepreneur, and young scholar studying psychology at the University of Houston, Wayne’s experience in the rap game, coupled with his amazing growth as an individual has placed him in a position only a handful of people in this industry reach.

“I’ve been in this game for thirteen years, so I’m not concerned with having to prove myself,” Wayne says. “I don’t have to prove anything, because my growth as a rapper and as a lyricist can be heard in my music.” Indeed, with the release of his fifth solo album Tha Carter II, its obvious Dwayne Carter AKA “Weezy” is a top-notch rapper whose lyrics and artistic vision tower over the competition.

Wayne, 23, was born and raised in New Orleans notorious 17th Ward in a neighborhood called Hollygrove. As a child, the aspiring rapper listened to and idolized early Cash Money recording artists like Pimp Daddy and UNLV, who he cites as some of his early influences. A few years later, Wayne met Cash Money CEOs Ronald “Suga Slim” and Bryan “Baby Williams (The Birdman) who would take him under their wings and help mold him into a prolific and profound artist. In 1995 at the age of 12, Wayne made his debut on Cash Money recording artist B.G.s album, True Story.
