Happy 29th birthday, Lil Wayne!

Happy Birthday, Weezy! The (arguably) biggest rapper in the game turns 29 today. Hard to believe it was only yesterday that Lil Wayne was actually little, rapping as half of the Hot Boys back when he was just a fresh-faced 15-year-old. Since then, he's put out four "Tha Carter" albums and replaced his teeth with diamonds. Tough to shop for a guy who has enough money to replace -- his teeth -- with diamonds.

Lil Wayne has had a busy year since his last birthday. He's been guiding the careers of breakout artists Nicki Minaj and Drake, both of which are signed to Wayne's Young Money label. And there was that brief time he spend in prison. And oh yeah, he's been busy keeping his diamond teeth clean. They're made of DIAMONDS! 

So Happy Birthday, Weezy. And make sure you use the waxed kind of floss. It glides much easier.
