Early Life and Career
Lil Wayne was born Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., but he dropped the "D" from his name because he wanted to sever the connection with his father, who abandoned the family when he was only two. Lil Wayne was an excellent high school student, but he left at 14 in order to pursue his growing music career. He joined the Hot Boys, a male rap group, at 15 and found moderate success. Two years later he started his solo career, releasing wildly popular albums and chart-topping singles like "Got Money," "Lollipop," and "On Fire." In 2018 Lil Wayne released his album Tha Carter V, which would later go on to become his fourth number-one album in the United States. Throughout his career he has collaborated with numerous other artists, including Madonna, Eminem, and Birdman. One of Lil Wayne's biggest fans is former President Barack Obama, who revealed that he has Lil Wayne on his iPod!
Awards and Accolades
Lil Wayne is arguable one of the most influential and successful rappers of his time. Throughout his career he has been nominated for over 179 awards and has won over 64 of those nominations. Although he has won countless American Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards, perhaps his most notable awards come from the Grammys. In total Lil Wayne has been nominated over 26 times, bringing home five awards. Although his first nomination came in 2006, he did not win his first Grammy until 2009.
