This Lil Wayne” has certainly found a home on our television screens. With the title of one of the best-selling artists of all time, we have no doubt that the hip-hop artist has made a name for himself in his industry. Need more proof? Lil Wayne overtook Elvis Presley as the man with the most entries in the Billboard Hot 100 charts with 109 songs. Yes, Elvis Presley! Not many artists can boast of having reached Lil Wayne’s peak during their entire career.
Lil Wayne is obviously not the first choice for names you would give your little boy, so it’s obvious that it’s just a stage name. The artist was born on September 27, 1982, as Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. and is from New Orleans, Louisiana. Coming from the ‘most unique’ city in the USA must have been a great burden for the artist who joined Cash Money Records at the tender age of nine. It’s quite impressive, at nine years old some of us still hold on to our mother’s skirts.
His career as a rap artist began in 1991, and 8 years later his solo debut album Tha Block Is Hot (1999) was awarded platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. The following albums were just as good, but the album that released him there was his sixth, Tha Carter III, which included songs like ‘Lollipop’, ‘A Milli’ and ‘Got Money’. It is still considered his most popular album today.
Lil Wayne’s Height
It would be impossible to lose Lil Wayne in a crowd, his numerous tattoos would definitely highlight him. In addition to his tattoos, Lil Wayne, popularly called Weezy, has other special features. His eyes are dark brown and his black hair was worn in dreadlocks long ago. The artist has an athletic build with a well-trained body, with well developed abdominal muscles.
We notice this in his numerous shirtless appearances and performances. The real question here is, how many shirts does Lil Wayne own? Back to the subject of Lil Wayne’s height, the rap artist is somehow on the short side at 5 feet 6 inches (1.68m). He is on a par with movie stars Daniel Radcliffe and Elijah Wood. The ‘Lil’ in his name was apparently not just for effect.
Lil Wayne’s Weight
His well-trained body is clear proof that the rap artist makes every effort to keep fit. Weezy himself has confirmed that he has a training routine that helps him keep his weight at 59 kg. He became a personal favorite when he admitted that his routine does not require him to go to the gym every day because everyone secretly hates the gym. Except for the fitness-conscious celebrities who rub their workouts in everyone’s face. He balances the gym visit with the activity outbursts during the day.
Lil Wayne loves skating and incorporates it into his everyday life. The rap artist also stresses the importance of staying hydrated, which goes hand in hand with eating foods packed with healthy proteins such as beef and eggs. His other more conventional exercise routines include pull-ups, bicep curls and bench presses. All this works together to give him the athletic killer body we all see, although genetics definitely plays a role.
Lil Wayne’s Measurements
The rap artist’s other body measurements such as biceps, chest, and waist remain unknown, but without a doubt, we can say in our hearts that he has a body that many men aspire to. He wears US size 8, European size 39 and British size 6 shoes, which is relatively small, but not very unusual for someone of his stature.
Also, did you know:
- Weezy’s first stage name was Shrimp Daddy, boy, are we glad he picked Lil Wayne.
- When he was 12 years old, he shot himself by mistake with his stepfather’s gun, getting shot is the reason why he writes,
- The artist does not believe that he can compete with Kendrick Lamar, a way to have confidence in himself! But we have to agree with him.
- Although he was in ‘everybody’s’ song, his favorite feature was in Destiny Child’s ‘Soldier’.
- Lil Wayne uses marijuana for headaches… and coughing, flu, hiccups, blisters and death.
