Lil Wayne
Lil Wayne has accomplished the American Dream. The New Orleans rapper went from running drugs in his neighborhood to record label Cash Money's youngest signee ever (he was just nine). A Grammy and platinum and gold album later, Wayne now runs Young Money Entertainment. The rapper stopped by the Bellco Theater on Friday, February 24. All photos by Miles Chrisinger.
