Early life Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. was born on September 27, 1982, and grew up in the impoverished Hollygrove neighborhood of New Orleans, Louisiana.[7] His mother, a cook, gave birth to him when she was 19 years old. His parents divorced when he was 2, and his father permanently abandoned the family. Although Wayne and Birdman have a father–son relationship and Birdman calls Carter his son, Wayne's biological father and namesake (Dwayne Carter) is still alive. Lil Wayne has also spoken about his deceased stepfather, Reginald "Rabbit" McDonald, who he has said he considers his real father. Carter has a tattoo dedicated to Rabbit, who was murdered before Carter became a star.[8] Carter enrolled in the gifted program of Lafayette Elementary School and in the drama club of Eleanor McMain Secondary School.[9] Wayne attended McMain in the early 1990s for two years. He moved to the Marion Abramson Senior High School.[10] In a CBS interview with Katie Couric, Wayne described why he goes by the name of "Wayne" instead of his given name, Dwayne. Carter explained, "I dropped the D because I'm a junior and my father is living and he's not in my life and he's never been in my life. So I don't want to be Dwayne, I'd rather be Wayne". Couric asked Wayne if his father knew of this and Wayne replied with a smile, "He knows now."[11] He wrote his first rap song at age eight.[12] In the summer of 1991, he met Bryan Williams, rapper and owner of Cash Money Records. Carter recorded freestyle raps on Williams's answering machine, leading him to mentor the young Carter and include him in Cash Money-distributed songs. He also recorded his first ever collaboration album True Story with rapper B.G.. At the time, Carter was 11, and B.G. was 14, and was billed as "The B.G.'z".[13] When he was 12, he played the part of the Tin Man in his middle school drama club's production of The Wiz.[14] At age 12, he accidentally shot himself with a 9 mm handgun, and off-duty police officer Robert Hoobler drove him to the hospital.[15] At McMain Magnet School, Carter was an honors student, but he dropped out at the age of 14 to focus on a musical career.[16] Career 1996–99: Career beginnings and Hot Boys In 1996, Carter joined the Hot Boys
Hot Boys
along with rappers Juvenile, B.G., and Turk. At age 15, Carter was the youngest member at the time. Hot Boys' debut album Get It How U Live! was released the same year, followed in 1999 by the group's major-label debut Guerrilla Warfare,[7] which reached No. 1 on the Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and No. 5 on the Billboard 200.[17] During their career, the Hot Boys
Hot Boys
had two charting singles, "We on Fire" from Get It How U Live! and "I Need a Hot Girl" from Guerrilla Warfare.[18] Carter was also featured on Juvenile's single "Back That Azz Up", which reached No. 18 on the Billboard Hot 100
Billboard Hot 100
and No. 5 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks.[19] Let 'Em Burn, a compilation album of unreleased tracks recorded during 1999 and 2000, came out in 2003, several years after the group disbanded.[20] It reached No. 3 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and No. 14 on the Billboard 200.[17] 1999–2004: Tha Block Is Hot, Lights Out, and 500 Degreez Carter's debut solo album Tha Block Is Hot
Tha Block Is Hot
was released when he was 17 and featured significant contributions from the Hot Boys. It debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200
Billboard 200
and was later certified platinum by the RIAA.[7] The album earned Carter a 1999 Source magazine nomination for "Best New Artist",[21] and also became a Top Ten hit.[7] The lead single was "Tha Block Is Hot". After the release of Tha Block is Hot, Carter was featured on the single "Bling Bling", with B.G., Juvenile, and Big Tymers. His verse appeared only on the radio version of the song, while on the album version he performed on the chorus. His 2000 follow-up album Lights Out failed to attain the level of success achieved by his debut[7] but was certified gold by RIAA.[22] Critics noted the lack of coherent narratives in his verses as evidence that he had yet to mature to the level of his fellow Hot Boys.[23] The lead single was "Get Off the Corner", which was noticed for an improvement in its lyrical content and style. The second single, which received less attention, was "Shine" featuring the Hot Boys. Near the release of Lights Out, Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
was featured on the single, "Number One Stunna" with Big Tymers and Juvenile, which peaked at No. 24 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart. Lil Wayne's third album 500 Degreez, released in 2002, followed the format of his previous two, with significant contributions from the Hot Boys
Hot Boys
and Mannie Fresh. While being certified gold like its predecessor,[22] it also failed to match the success of his debut.[7] The title was a reference to the recently estranged Hot Boys
Hot Boys
member Juvenile's recording, 400 Degreez.[24] The lead single was "Way of Life" which failed to match the success of his previous singles. After the release of 500 Degreez, Wayne was featured on the single "Neva Get Enuf" by 3LW.[25] 2004–06: Tha Carter, Tha Carter

Lil Wayne
published his first blog for ESPN
ESPN
in their issue, ESPN
ESPN
The Magazine. Wayne revealed he was a fan of tennis, the Green Bay Packers, the Boston Bruins, the Los Angeles Lakers
Los Angeles Lakers
and the Boston Red Sox. To commemorate the Packers' making it to Super Bowl XLV, he spoofed Wiz Khalifa's hit song "Black and Yellow" (which were the colors of the Packers' opponents, the Pittsburgh Steelers) in a song titled "Green and Yellow".[158] Wayne has continued writing for ESPN, notably reporting at the ESPN
ESPN
Super Bowl
Super Bowl
party.[159] Lil Wayne made his debut on ESPN's daily sports round table show Around The Horn on February 10, 2009.[160] Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
now currently sings the intro song "No Mercy" for the Fox Sports 1
Fox Sports 1
sports debate show Undisputed. Wayne received criticism after a video released by TMZ showed him apparently stepping on the American flag. Wayne later explained that "It was never my intention to desecrate the flag of the United States", and that he was shooting a video for a song on his upcoming album, " God
God
Bless Amerika." He claims the purpose of the flag was to "show that 'behind the American Flag was the Hoods of America'."[161] In late 2016, Wayne made statements critical of the Black Lives Matter movement, saying "I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me. If you do, you crazy as shit", and adding that his status as a rich African American with white fans is evidence that black people are valued in modern America.[162] Health issues On October 25, 2012, Lil Wayne's private jet, bound for Los Angeles, made an emergency landing in Texas
Texas
due to an in-flight medical episode. Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
was transferred to a local hospital upon arrival.[163] TMZ and other media sources claimed that Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
had suffered a seizure aboard the plane.[164] His publicist denied this, claiming that he was in fact treated for "a severe migraine and dehydration."[165] The following day, while flying from Texas
Texas
to Los Angeles, Lil Wayne's private jet was reportedly again forced to make an emergency landing, this time in Louisiana, after Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
suffered a second seizure and required further hospitalization.[165][166] His representative claimed that the reports of Lil Wayne's condition had been exaggerated, and that he was resting at his Louisiana
Louisiana
home.[167] In a November 2012 interview with MTV, Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
revealed that he was taking seizure medication, on doctors' orders, due to the aforementioned incidents.[168] On March 14, 2013, TMZ reported that Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
had been treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center
in Los Angeles
Los Angeles
on the evening of March 12, after suffering seizures while on a music video set with Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj. He was reportedly released in the early hours of March 13.[169] On March 15, TMZ published a second story, claiming that hours after his release on March 13, Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
was found unconscious after experiencing further seizures, and was brought back to Cedars-Sinai, where he was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit
Intensive Care Unit
in critical condition.[170][171][172] The article alleged the latest seizures were found to be linked to high amounts of codeine in Lil Wayne's system, possibly due to binging on purple drank after his initial hospital release.[171][173][174] Multiple celebrities, including Drake and Birdman, were photographed on March 15 and 16 visiting Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
at Cedars-Sinai.[173] Several members of Young Money
Young Money
Entertainment, including president Mack Maine, criticized media reports on Lil Wayne's hospitalization, particularly those of TMZ, alleging that they exaggerated the severity of his condition and falsely implied that he was on his deathbed (such as by claiming that he was in a medically induced coma),[175] triggering what the Washington Post
Washington Post
called "the most overheated celebrity deathwatch in recent years."[176] In separate interviews on March 18, Mack Maine
Mack Maine
and Birdman disputed TMZ's reports, and stated that in fact there were not multiple seizures or multiple hospital visits. They explained that after Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
began seizing on the way to the music video shoot on March 12, an ambulance was called and he was transported to the hospital, where he was admitted and remained continuously thereafter.[177] They also refuted the claims that Lil Wayne's seizures are drug-induced, noting that they are an ongoing problem for which doctors have been unable to identify a cause.[178] Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
was released from the hospital late on March 18, following a six-day stay.[179] Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
addressed his condition via a vlog, on March 21 saying he was more than good.[180] In a March 28 interview with DJ Felli Fel
DJ Felli Fel
of Power 106
Power 106
in Los Angeles, Wayne said that he suffers from epilepsy, a neurological condition which is noted by seizures. He would say "This isn't my first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth or seventh seizure. I've had a bunch of seizures. Y'all just never hear about them. But this time, it got real bad because I had three of them in a row."[181] He had two seizures in June 2016, during a cross-country flight from Wisconsin
Wisconsin
to California, and landed in Omaha, Nebraska.[182] His plane was only two minutes in air when the second seizure occurred and was forced to land in Omaha once again. Less than a month later, he had another seizure, supposedly due to not taking his epilepsy medication.[183] Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
cancelled a Las Vegas show on September 3, 2017, having had a seizure in a Chicago hospital earlier that day, where he was brought after being found unconscious in a hotel room.[184] Public references by Barack Obama Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
has been referenced in public speeches by President Barack Obama on at least two occasions, in mixed contexts. Speaking to a largely African-American audience during a general election campaign town hall speech in Georgia, then-U.S. Senator Obama exhorted children to stay in school and achieve their dreams through education and perseverance instead of hoping for shortcuts to fame and riches as professional athletes and entertainers via the fields of sports and entertainment, stating: "You are probably not that good a rapper. Maybe you are the next Lil Wayne, but probably not, in which case you need to stay in school."[185] After assuming the Presidency, Obama later echoed this theme of personal and familial responsibility and the difficulty of achieving Lil Wayne's professional and financial success—during an address to a meeting commemorating the 100th anniversary of the NAACP, telling the audience:

They might think they've got a pretty jump shot or a pretty good flow, but our kids can't all aspire to be LeBron or Lil Wayne. I want them aspiring to be scientists and engineers, doctors and teachers, not just ballers and rappers. I want them aspiring to be a Supreme Court justice. I want them aspiring to be President of the United States
United States
of America.[186]

Obama has also noted that the music on his iPod includes Lil Wayne:

My rap palate has greatly improved. Jay-Z
Jay-Z
used to be sort of what predominated, but now I've got a little Nas
Nas
and a little Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
and some other stuff.[187]

Legal troubles Arrests and incarceration On July 22, 2007, Lil Wayne

He was due for sentencing in February 2010 and was expected to receive a one-year county jail sentence,[191] but on February 9, 2010, Lil Wayne's attorney announced that the sentencing was delayed until March 2 due to dental surgery,[192] which was performed on February 16. The surgery included eight root canals, the replacement of several tooth implants, as well as the addition of a few new implants and work on his remaining original teeth.[193] On March 2, 2010, sentencing was postponed again when the courthouse reported a fire in the basement.[194] On March 8, 2010, Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne
was arrested alongside two others. His tour bus was stopped by Border Patrol agents near Yuma, Arizona. A K-9 Unit recovered 105 grams (3.7 oz) of marijuana, almost 29 grams (1.0 oz) of cocaine, 41 grams (1.4 oz) of ecstasy, and $22,000 in cash. Lil Wayne

did not show for a final trial management conference.[203][204] However, the rapper was already incarcerated, serving a one-year sentence in Rikers Island
Rikers Island
on weapons charges. On June 22, 2010 Wayne pleaded guilty to the charges. As part of the plea deal he was able to serve 36 months of probation, which he was sentenced to on June 30, 2010.[205][206] On December 18, 2009, Wayne and 11 others were detained at the Falfurrias, Texas

border patrol checkpoint after an unknown amount of marijuana was found on two of his tour buses.[207] Lawsuits On July 24, 2008, Abkco Music Inc filed a lawsuit against Lil Wayne for copyright infringement and unfair competition, specifically referring to Tha Carter
Tha Carter
III's track "Playing with Fire".[208] In the lawsuit, Abkco claims that the song was obviously derived from The Rolling Stones' "Play with Fire", to which Abkco owns the rights.[208][209] Subsequently, "Playing with Fire" was removed from the track list of Tha Carter
Tha Carter
III on all online music stores and replaced with the David Banner
David Banner
produced track, "Pussy Monster".[210][211][212] In February 2009, production company RMF Productions filed a $1.3 million lawsuit against Wayne, following a $100,000 advance payment for three shows, all of which were cancelled by the artist.[213] In October 2009, Lil Wayne, Birdman, Cash Money Records, and various music distribution outlets were sued for copyright infringement by Thomas Marasciullo, who claims his voice was used without permission. The rappers asked him to record some "Italian-styled spoken word recordings" in 2006. The lyrics were allegedly used on "Respect" and other tracks from the rappers' collaboration album Like Father, Like Son and Birdman's 5 * Stunna.[214] In March 2011, producer Deezle (Darius Harrison) sued Wayne and his parent labels Cash Money Records
Cash Money Records
over unpaid royalties from Tha Carter III.[215] In May 2011, producer Bangladesh also filed a lawsuit against Weezy & Co. over unpaid royalties as well.[216] In early June 2011, another producer named David Kirkwood filed a lawsuit against Young Money Entertainment
Young Money Entertainment
and Cash Money Records

filed a lawsuit against him, claiming Wayne owes them at least $1 million in unpaid royalties for "Got Money" from his album Tha Carter
Tha Carter

Young Money
Entertainment, claiming copyright infringement. The lawsuit alleges Wayne stole the song "BedRock", featured on the compilation album We Are Young Money, and seeks damages of $15 million.[219] Feuds Juvenile Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
began feuding with former Hot Boys
Hot Boys
member and Cash Money Records labelmate Juvenile in 2002, after Juvenile took offence to Lil Wayne naming his second studio album 500 Degreez, a diss aimed towards Juvenile whose last album was named 400 Degreez. Juvenile responded with a diss track on his 2002 album 600 Degreez, titled "A Hoe". In the song, Juvenile questions Lil Wayne’s sexuality, and claims he’s a fake gangster. Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
did not respond directly to the song, instead paying tribute to the Hot Boys
Hot Boys
with a song called "I Miss My Dawgs" on 2004’s Tha Carter. Juvenile responded by calling the song "fake", and criticised Wayne for releasing a tribute song and later promoting the album on BET and having "nothing good to say about them". The two eventually reconciled, and Juvenile re-signed with Cash Money Records in 2014.[220][221] Young Buck Young Buck
Young Buck
released a song featuring Tony Yayo
Tony Yayo
called "Off Parole" which insulted Lil Wayne. Young Buck
Young Buck
said that Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
could not be angry, because Young Buck
Young Buck
spoke the truth. Young Buck
Young Buck
also said "You think you got a problem with Juve and B.G.; you'll have a true problem with me", referring to the Cash Money-Juvenile/B.G feud.[222][223] One of the reasons 50 Cent
50 Cent
stated he was dismissing Young Buck
Young Buck
was what he called "inconsistent behavior" which included appearing on stage with Lil Wayne, then seemingly dissing him on records with G-Unit.[224] After he was dismissed, Young Buck
Young Buck
appeared in the music video "My Life" by The Game, which featured Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
in the vocals.[225] As of 2009 Buck and Wayne have squashed their beef and also linked up to record a track "Up's and Down's" for Young Buck's Back On My Buck Shit mixtape. Pusha T Tension between Wayne and American rapper, Pusha T, had been going on for years, beginning soon after Clipse
Clipse
and Birdman worked on "What Happened to That Boy", the latter's 2002 single. In 2006, Wayne felt the Clipse
Clipse
song "Mr. Me Too" was directed at him which caused more tension between the two.[226] In 2012 after much speculation that Pusha T
Pusha T
was subliminally dissing Canadian rapper and Wayne's Young Money signee Drake in several songs, the speculation heightened after the release of Pusha T's "Exodus 23:1" song. Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
quickly responded on online social networking service Twitter
Twitter
and later released a diss track titled "Goulish". In the first verse Wayne raps "Fuck Pusha T
Pusha T
and anybody that love him / His head up his ass, I'mma have to head-butt him".[227] Pusha T
Pusha T
has called Wayne's diss track "horrible" and said he felt it didn't deserve a response. Both men have downplayed the feud, with Wayne saying he's over it.[228][229] However, in late November, Pusha T
Pusha T
dissed Wayne and Birdman on a new Ludacris
Ludacris
song titled "Tell Me What They Mad For".[230] However, once the feud between Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
and Birdman arose, Pusha T
Pusha T
sent out a tweet encouraging Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
to sign to G.O.O.D. Music, which also insulted Birdman for his hand-rubbing habit.[231] JAY-Z In a 2009 interview with Tropical TV, Birdman disputed the MTV
MTV
poll that voted Jay Z
Jay Z
"The Hottest MC in the Game", stating that Lil Wayne was a better rapper and made more money.[232] In early 2011, when Jay Z & Kanye West's single "H•A•M" was released, Jay Z
Jay Z
took shots at Birdman, saying "Really, you got Baby money" and "[you] ain't got my lady's money!".[233] On August 24, 2011, a song called "It's Good" by Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
(featuring Drake and Jadakiss) was leaked online and included Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne
responding "Talkin' 'bout baby money? I gotcha baby money. Kidnap your bitch, get that, How much you love your lady? money".[234][235] Jadakiss
Jadakiss
later absolved himself of involvement in any brewing beef on his official Twitter

feed.[236][237] Discography Main articles: Lil Wayne
