Bio: Lil Wayne

Although there has been much debate on the subject of who is or who isn't the "King of the South," Lil Wayne isn't worried about all the fuss as to who really lays claim to the title. As a veteran rap star, budding entrepreneur, and young scholar studying psychology at theUniversityofHouston,Wayne's experience in the rap game, coupled with his amazing growth as an individual has placed him in a position only a handful of people in this industry reach.

Wayne, 23, was born and raised inNew Orleans' notorious 17th Ward in a neighborhood called Hollygrove. As a child, the aspiring rapper listened to and idolized early Cash Money recording artists like Pimp Daddy and UNLV, who he cites as some of his early influences. A few years later,Waynemet Cash Money CEOs Ronald "Suga Slim" andBryan"Baby" Williams (The Birdman) who would take him under their wings and help mold him into a prolific and profound artist. In 1995 at the age of 12,Waynemade his debut on Cash Money recording artist B.G.'s album, True Story.

As the newest venture on Lil Wayne's imprint, Young Money Entertainment via Cash Money/Universal Records, Tha Carter II is bound to thrill those who have watched this former Hot Boy mature since his first appearance on True Story. "Everyday I experience new things, and it's these experiences I express creatively in my songs." Lil Wayne, a perfectionist in the lab, has never been one to waste time. In fact, he has been known to complete five songs in a day. "I could do an entire album in a week," he brags, "But Tha Carter II took me a little longer " a month," he deadpans. "I wanted to make sure everything was right."

The new CD also features cameos from comrades in rhyme Slim Thug, Kurupt and others. Lil Wayne even pays homage to aural hero Rakim on the stunning "I'm A Dboy" featuring Birdman. "Rakim is one of the greatest MCs ever,"Waynesays. "By using the 'Paid in Full' beat on "I'm A Dboy," I'm thanking him for his contributions to the rap genre."

With Tha Carter II, Lil Wayne proves himself more than a contender to the throne, because this winner is already wearing the crown.
