Personal Life and Early Life
Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., better known as Lil Wayne, was born in 1982. Carter’s abilities were noted early on despite growing up in the low-income area of Hollygrove in New Orleans. The youngster was placed in his primary school’s gifted program and also joined the theatre club when he was in elementary school.
Carter had composed his first rap song at the age of eight, and a year later he grabbed the notice of Bryan Williams, better known simply as “Birdman.” Williams, as the proprietor of Cash Money Records, was Lil Wayne’s first opportunity at success. Carter placed messages on Birdman’s answering machine that featured his freestyles, which persuaded Williams to give the kid a chance. After featuring in a handful of tracks under the Cash Money Label, it was evident that music would be Lil Wayne’s future professional priority.
Carter was 12 when tragedy struck. An off-duty police drove him to the hospital after he shot himself in the chest with a 9mm handgun. He has now revealed that this was a suicide attempt motivated by his mother’s dislike for his rapping profession.
