Inside Lil Wayne’s US$29 million Miami Beach mansion: the rapper’s Allison Island home has a private pool and cinema, plus VIP neighbours Shakira, Madonna, Sylvester Stallone and Pitbull
Lil Wayne is widely regarded as one of the most influential hip-hop artists of his generation and one of the greatest rappers of all time.
Born Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., the 40-year-old musician started writing songs when he was just eight years old and got his big break at just 11, when he was signed by Cash Money Records.
Despite having a rough start in life, including a suicide attempt in middle school, he has achieved notable success.
Lil Wayne has won five Grammy Awards, 11 BET Awards, four Billboard Music Awards and two MTV Video Music Awards. With 120 million record sales worldwide, he is one of America’s most commercially successful artists.
In 2005, the American rapper started his own record label, Young Money Entertainment, which has released 14 albums that have reached No 1 on the Billboard charts. In addition to Wayne’s own current work, the label represents Nicki Minaj, Mack Maine and Lil Twist.
