Lil Wayne Picture

Rapper, Lil Wayne‘s real full name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr.

In a CBS interview with Katie Couric, Wayne described why he goes by the name of “Wayne” instead of his given name, Dwayne. Carter explained, “I dropped the D because I’m a junior and my father is living and he’s not in my life and he’s never been in my life. So I don’t want to be Dwayne, I’d rather be Wayne”. Couric asked Wayne if his father knew of this and Wayne replied with a smile, “He knows now”.

He sees his real fathers as the now deceased Rabbit and Brian Williams, also known as Birdman or Baby.
