Lil Wayne is only 32 but he’s been rapping almost his entire life. He wrote his first rap at the age of eight and by 11, he had a collaboration album out. Even though Weezy was an honor student at school, at 14 he decided to put the books down for good and focus his attention on his blossoming music career. The New Orleans rapper went on to drop an album as part of the Hot Boyz group and at 17 his debut album ended up going platinum. Wayne hasn’t looked back since.
