Wayne, born Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., began his rap career at age 11 as one of the first artists signed to Cash Money Records. He was part of the groups The B.G.'z and The Hot Boys before launching his solo career in 1999 with the release of "Tha Block is Hot." Since then, Wayne has garnered a huge underground following, releasing mixtape after mixtape, and has established himself in the mainstream rap world as well.
His chart-topping hits "Lollipop," "A Milli," "She Will" and "6 Foot 7 Foot," just to name a few, have made the Hollygrove, New Orleans native a game-changing artist and celebrity. His five Grammy's include Sunday night's win for Best Rap Performance ("No Problem" with Chance the Rapper and 2 Chainz), Best Rap Solo Performance ("A Milli"), Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group ("Swagga Like Us" with TI, Kanye West and Jay-Z), Best Rap Song ("Lollipop") and Best Rap Album ("Tha Carter III"). Earlier this month Wayne surpassed Drake for the most Billboard Hot 100 appearances with his 133rd appearance on Wale's "Running Back."
Lil Wayne is also the CEO of his own label Young Money Entertainment.
