Biography Born Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. in New Orleans, LA, on September 27, 1982, Lil Wayne's musical career began at the age of 11.
Hailing from the streets of the 17th Ward of New Orleans, he was first recruited by Cash Money owners Bryan "Baby" Williams and Ronald "Slim" Williams.

Right from the start, Lil Wayne shined as a true emerging rap talent, catapulting his solo career. His freestyling abilities was a breathe of fresh air compared to the rappers of the past.

As a member of this popular group and a successful solo artist in his own right, Lil Wayne easily became a platinum-selling superstar. With his distinctive high-pitched voice and hot beats, he had no problem finding legions of loyal fans. Lil Wayne soon launched his solo career and immediately had two hit records under his belt, "The Block Is Hot" and "Lights Out". His first successful album, "Tha Carter II", which featured the hit, "The Fireman" was listed on The Billboard Hot 100 and Wayne gained nationwide recognition for his work. Yet recently, the album, "Like Father Like Son" has outsold all previous sales records and has the clubs jamming from coast to coast. The joint partnership song between Wayne and his mentor Birdman titled "Stuntin Like My Daddy" has turned this album into hip hop gold.
Personal Interests Wayne's tattoos have been a hot topic among his growing fan base. The main discussion has been the tattoos on his face and eyelids. There has been confusion on the meaning of the two teardrops below his eyes which can represent several things.
