American rapper Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. – aka Lil Wayne – was born in New Orleans, Louisiana USA, on 27 September 1982, making Libra his zodiac sign. Many people consider him to be one of the best rappers of all time; he’s been active in the music industry since he was 12, has released 13 albums and sold over 120 million albums worldwide, which makes him one of the best-selling artists of all time.
Lil Wayne was raised in Uptown New Orleans solely by his mother, as his parents divorced when he was two, and his father abandoned the family; his mother eventually married Reginald ‘Rabbit’ McDonald who was a good stepfather to Lil Wayne, and he’s revealed in an interview that he considers Rabbit to be his real father, and has a tattoo dedicated to him.
He studied at Lafayette Elementary School prior to moving to Eleanor McMain Secondary School, at which he was mostly into acting, appearing in the school’s production of “The Wiz” as the Tin Man. Lil Wayne was to enroll at Marion Abramson Senior High School in 2000, but instead chose to focus on his music career.
He was only eight when he wrote his first song, and met American rapper and record executive Bryan Christopher Williams aka Birdman; Lil Wayne was 12 when he shot himself with a gun in the chest, and although he initially claimed it was accidental, he revealed years later that he attempted suicide. Police Officer Robert Hoobler saved Lil Wayne’s life, as he insisted that he be driven to a hospital in a police car rather than to wait for an ambulance.
