Lil Wayne Height

"When I started flirting with the hustle, failure became my ex, now I'm engaged to the game and married to success."

~ Lil Wayne

Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. aka Lil Wayne is certainly one of the most influential rappers of all time. Where height is concerned the "Lil" part in his name suits him, because he is certainly not the biggest guy on the stage -- as you may have already noticed. 

About Lil Wayne's Real Height

So how tall is Lil Wayne exactly? Well, the answer is rather easy! Mr. Wayne himself once said in a song called "The Only Reason": "I'm only 5'8" and y'all short to me". We guess that number was chosen randomly because there is no way Lil Wayne would touch the 5'8" mark - perhaps with the help of lift shoes but not otherwise.

Perhaps that's because Mr. Wayne amended that in another of his song where he claimed to be 5'7". But after another thought on the matter, Mr. Wayne further downgraded his height to 5'6" in one of his singles called "President Carter".

But that's not the end of the tale, at the latest (still 2012), Mr. Wayne claimed to be 5'5" in a song called "Pop That" (by French Montana). The lyrics went something like "I'm 5'5 but I can six-nine."

After comparing Mr. Wayne to Floyd Mayweather Jr. (5'7"), Tyga (around 5'7"), Justin Bieber (5'7.5"), and some other celebrities, we think that Lil Wayne surely looks closer to 5'5" than any other number.

The real height of Lil Wayne is
