Rob, why do you let comments like "Wayne was same height as my gf, at 5'0 tall."??? Like seriously, WTF? It's just impossible to the point where I would kill myself if he was 5'0".

And ever noticed when someone is ACTUALLY 5'5", almost everyone just underestimates their height, and never overestimates. I get he's a short guy, or maybe very short as the guy below suggests, but 5'0"???????? LOL......... what clowns...
Editor Rob
it was a pretty dumb comment, worthy of deletion 👍
Damon Blank said on 19/Apr/19
5 ft 5 is about correct. Very short dude. Short next to 5 ft 7 Tyga, and dwarfed by 6 ft 1/2 Chris Brown in the music video 'Loyal'.
MAD SAM said on 19/Jun/18
I’ll go for what he claims, 165 cm
andre oliveira said on 20/Jan/18
5ft5 with shoes not barefoot

rob likes to add extra height on the famous :(
Editor Rob
Wait...usually it's the opposite - 'Rob is downgrading celebrities'. 🤔
Felix said on 11/Jan/18
What da! Wiz kalifa blew my mind, like for real lol, he is soo tall even taller than jayZ. Wow, thats a lot of height lol
Editor Rob: Lil Wayne has shown, along with rappers like Lil Uzi that being under 5ft 6 is no barrier to becoming a successful rapper..

Not sure if it's been talked about, but his most recent public arrest record (NYPD) back in 2010 had him at 5'5" and 130lbs, so he's certainly not over 5'5".
Nik said on 29/Aug/17
I think you are about right Rob!
Peter175 said on 27/Aug/17
Laughing so hard at "become height reformed" 😂😂😂😂

He gets every bit of 165-166 from me

Looks smaller than Bruno Mars
Got to be around 163cm for sure
World Citizen said on 18/May/17

He's only become honest recently Rob! A few years ago, I recall him stating in a rap that he was "only 5'8".
Editor Rob: there's always time to become height reformed.

Hey Rob, how tall do you think Birdman is? He is listen as 5'11 which is ridiculous

Editor Rob: yeah my first thought was, he could be 5ft 8, at times can look above or under that mark...

Here is Wayne with Drake who is 6 foot. He has a good 7 inches on him.

Mike said on 18/Dec/15
No way, Floyd Mayweather had about 5 inches on him. I'd say closer to 5'3 seriously
5'11.5 said on 17/Nov/15
You are spot on again Rob nice
Weezy said on 2/Nov/15
If he is in the 5'5 range, Birdman can't be more than 5'8

Click Here
Google gives him 6'0, which is same as Drake... check how much he edges him
L24 said on 3/Sep/15
If he's just 5'5" like you list him here then Kendrick Lamar must be about 5'4.5-5'4.75 because Lil Wayne clearly edges him out.
Having said that, I think 5' 5.25 might be a better listing for him, what do you think Rob?
C said on 11/Jul/15
I think he might be a bit shorter 5'4.5-5'4.75

I am 6'5 and when i met lil wayne backstage during the BET awards he was a little inch above me i wore ma nikes and he wore retros idk why rappers dont grom dis days.
iknow said on 17/May/14
I ran across lil wayne back in like 2001 In an airport before they started flying private jets just hanging out and I swear I'm just 5' 4 -5'6 in heels and it felt like I was towering over him. Him, Baby and Mannie were all short, juvie was just a lil taller than me and Slim looked like a giant. Wish I would've got a picture, didn't expect him to blow up so big
John said on 21/Apr/14
One thing is Kevin Hart is 5'2" and in one picture of him with Kevin Hart he looked like he would be about 5'3. But I met him and he was about 5'5". So Kevin Hart might be a little taller than 5'2".
John said on 28/Mar/14
@James Richardson I met him. He's 5'5" for sure.
bill said on 2/Mar/14
I'm 5' 2" and when I me thim he was just an inch above me, 2 the most - we were both wearing air jordans. So I don't get this 5' 5"/5' 6" ****. 5' 3" sounds about right, weak 5' 4".
James Richardson said on 28/Feb/14
No way 5'5, he 5'2.5.
Ted said on 18/Jan/14
Wow. For someone so tiny, Lil Wayne sure talks a lot of smack.
heigth said on 16/Dec/13
whattttt? so i find a picture of kendrick lamar and lil wayne, kendrick is stated 5'6 but he is actually wearing high shoes in this pic and he is still shorter than lil wayne by an inch wich is obviously not more than 5'6. i dont even think he is slouching so whats up? lil wayne need an upgrade or kendrick downgrade? anyways lil wayne look really short really short my dad is 5'5.5 as well but he look much taller idk why! kendrick look short aswell maybe its just cuz of their type of body

In my world i think that drake.wiz Khalifa,rick ross and french montana and all the other rappers are tall right,so if you seen the song love me drake
theenforcer said on 10/Feb/13
A friend of mine has a mate, and his girlfriend's sister used to work with a guy who was the cousin of the sister of one of Chris Brown's security guards. This guy also knew some of Wayne's guards and one of them (Dave) told him that they once measured Wayne's height and he was Wayne is 5ft5, so an accurate reading from a reliable source. Everyone else on here is just guessing, this guy was there when he got measured barefoot.
KJ said on 6/Feb/13
He's 167 or 168 saw him twice.
Mikey T said on 1/Feb/13
If he's 5'4" then Justin Bieber's gotta be 5'5" because he's barely taller than him
Johnnyfive said on 20/Oct/12
Hes probably 5'4.5 (164cm) but rounds up to 5'5. He needs a one inch downgrade. Props to him for not claiming three and a half inches taller like some other celeb out there (Bieber i'm looking at you!)
-- said on 30/Aug/12
In the new song (2012) Pop That by French Montana ft. Drake, Rick Ross and Weezy he claims 5'5. "Im 5'5 but I can six-nine, then beat that p**sy like klitschko...". He 5'4 tops. A while back he was at warner studio a friend went over to his guard and asked if she could get he autograph, they let her next to him. My friend (who is 5'4.5 barefoot) had sandle on (so she was like right at 5'5) and he had sneakers on they were the EXACT same hight. His shoe were thicker so they gave him a good inch. I dont know if he had anything else inside of them to give him even more (which i dont think he did). So yea hes 5'5 with shoe on, seemed like a cool guy very nice.
Lil' T said on 29/Aug/12
defo he's 5'5 bruv met him at his last concert
jtm said on 22/Aug/12
he claimed 5'8 in a song called the only reason so he is lying just like many other celebs and even 5'5 is generous. he looks 5'4 to me.
Duhon said on 21/Aug/12
I know the song obviously. The 5'5" line part doesn't actually rhyme with anything. Besides no man would make himself out to be shorter in a song. It's taken from his own mouth. Again he should be respected for not frauding on his true height like a lot of other celebs.
Mimi Luvs U said on 15/Aug/12
@Duhon.. That song is called Pop That and it was by french montana he said that so it could rhyme
the shredder said on 9/Aug/12
I saw him when I was 15 He was 5'5
Duhon said on 9/Aug/12
He actually refers to himself as 5'5" in a new single: "I'm 5′5" but I could six nine". Props to him about open with his height.

Hey john, That picture doesn't help, as lil wayne clearly doesn't have 3 inches on him.. maybe 1, you're way off on measurements.. definitely 5.5-5'6 in.
josh said on 25/Apr/09
in the 2008 bet hip hop awards he was at least 7 inches shorter than 5-11 50 cent and was the same height as 5-4 kerry washington so he is 5-4
John said on 4/Apr/09
Hey just did some searching to help :) most pictures with Bobby Valentino look like this:
Click Here , can see that lil wayne seems to be leaning alot more and still has 3 inches or so on him...
is 5 ft 7 for lil wayne possible?
John said on 4/Apr/09
He looks around 3 inches taller than Bobby Valentino (5ft 4) in all their pictures and video...i'd say lil wayne is 5 ft 6 - 5 ft 7.

Lil wayne is that short.. Dang, I'm 5'2 in shoes and 12 years old. (I'm considered short in my grade)

He's kinda short for his age but i stil love him but in his song he says hes 5 foot 6
Comets said on 28/Feb/09
i'll give him 164 at best, he isn't as tall as Summer Glau
Blake said on 26/Feb/09
Its funny seeing people writing that they saw him and he looked 5'6 or 5'7 next to this person but what they fail to realize is that these celebs are VERY aware of their height and when fans call them short on a daily basis(especially being a guy)obviously they get self conscious and they DO where thick or high shoes or lifts to give them a couple inches.It doesnt matter what kind of shoes they're wearing either;sneakers,boots,dress shoes..lifts can be put in ANY shoes.No one knows their tru height except their doctors.Honestly how often do you see celebs without shoes. Celebs become obsessed with height as much as us! lol
Anonymous said on 24/Feb/09
5'4 at best, he isn;'t over 170cm but is over 160cm..definitely not 5'7 but about the same height Aamir Khan
Sunnyfan said on 19/Feb/09
I think Lil Wayne looks a hair over 5`5, and should be downgraded too 5`5.25.
leonari said on 11/Feb/09
never is this guy 5'6"
Blake said on 11/Feb/09
I live in NYC,I go to alot of clubs where my good friends work and see alot of celebs,Im 6'0, 6'1 in sneakers(that night)and Lil Wayne walked right by me 3 times and the top of his dreads was just below the bttm of my chest,I could literally see the top of his head,all I could think is,"Damn this dude is really really short",he looked like a junior highschool student,and I'm a big fan,Lil Wayne is def. in my playlist,I'm not tryna take anything away from him, but Rob is definitely right at 5'5,possibly 5'4-1/2
(no way in hell 5'7 or 5'8,that's insane and if he looks that height,it's the shoes)

Here's a link from the Grammy's. Lil' Wayne is shorter than TI so there's no way he's anything over 5'6" at best. I'm thinking he's 5'5".
Spectator said on 9/Feb/09

Gregg said on 1/Jan/09
Why the hell do you think they call him Lil Wayne? Jesus Christ, you people are dumb.

There is, however, the theory that he's just called Lil Wayne because of his young age. This begs the question: what's he gonna be called when he's in his 30s? Is it gonna be like with Lil Bow Wow/Bow Wow? Are we just going to be calling this blowjob-eulogising dingus "Wayne"? Or, as I so strongly suspect, are we just not going to be calling him at all because he'll fade away into the night like so many unspectacular performers before him?

I predict the latter.

Anybody who wants the big words explaining to them is free to kiss my epididymis.
leonari said on 31/Dec/08
LiL wayne is not 5'6,not 5'6.5 and surely not 5'7". He is exactly the height Rob has him at. Rob has an incredible "eye". I have to admit that.

I am writing on behalf of Mr.D.Carter A.K.A Lil Wayne. I work for Mr.Carter, as part of his P.R. team, and I would like to make it clear that, he is in fact 5'6. That is 1.68m from head to foot. I hope this had cleared the debate up, if you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us via Lil Wayne's official site.
anonymous said on 13/Dec/08
Lil wayne is obviously not very tall. He is like other shorter celebrities...tom cruise, al pacino, etc that have an obvious short look about them...reason is because they are below average height...and lil wayne is definetly in that group.
Big T said on 7/Dec/08
He looks 2 inches taller than Bobby Valentino on the "Mrs Officer" video, so Rob has that right.

lol did anyone else notice in that video, they get all the women (some of whom are shorter than them, and some who are taller) to stand in front of a police height chart, and all of the women are measuring over 6 foot tall?? Surely a ploy to make the women all look like giants so Wayne and Bobby seem 6' plus?
Anonymous said on 5/Dec/08
Yeah Right! Lil Wayne is no where near 5'6". I am only 5'3" and he shorter than me. :)

Man Lil Wayne is a lil short yall know that, these lil fans that are in love with him saying he's 5-7 and some even say 5-9?! are just delusional and in denial. The guy about 5-5, 5-5 1/2 sounds good to me. Birdman look a good 4 to 5 inches taller so he a good 5-9 or 5-10 to me, but stop tryin to boost Weezy's height, the man aint even near 5-6 yo.

With a name like Verce, you sort of
expect a bunch of lyrics over a unground beat. What you get is
so much better. Brown Paper Bag Money is one of those
Anthems that you can't help but sing. After one chorus
I found myself singing, Brown Paper Bag,
Brown Brown, Paper Bag Money. This is a Hip Hop banger
that makes you forget about snap music and runs with it as if the
last two decades never happened.

It's a really smooth track from Verce hott Mixtape
"Isufficient Funds". Nice lyric and the cool rapping
shows off Verce Swagg. It

I met lil wayne and lil corncob at the mall arcade and they wuz da same height. Corncob stole bout 75 cent from my homie Marquese. In Lil corncobs mix tape from 96 he says he be bout 5'3". He wuz only 15 then, so he probly grew like 2" more since then. Besides, you can't be taller than 5'6 to be called "lil"...its like rap rules or something.

Have ever seen Lil Flip ( hes about 6 ft ), so much about your so called rule. And there many with Lil but who are above 5'6.

I met lil wayne and lil corncob at the mall arcade and they wuz da same height. Corncob stole bout 75 cent from my homie Marquese. In Lil corncobs mix tape from 96 he says he be bout 5'3". He wuz only 15 then, so he probly grew like 2" more since then. Besides, you can't be taller than 5'6 to be called "lil"...its like rap rules or somfin.
leonari said on 18/Dec/07
ROB you downgraded him!!! Thanks!! Now it's accurate! Never a full 5'6" guy.
Tyrone Mayfield said on 17/Dec/07
damn, um 5'4 and um only 17 um little but lil wayne grown and he 5'5.But thats my nigga though
C. said on 21/Nov/07
Wow. He does give off a 5'4" impression, but no way he's 5'7". 5'5"-5'6" seems about accurate though. But 5'2"...no. Just b/c his name is Lil Wayne, doesn't mean he's THAT little, although it's possible to believe that. Otherwise, BW and Omarion and the rest are 5'2" as well.

However, he DOES lie about his age. He debuted, stating that he was a young teen rap prodigy. I knew there was no way he could only be 25-- he doesn't even look like it!
Anonymous said on 13/Nov/07
all of yall r retarded robs right! like lil jc said he said hes 5'6". when i meet him he wasnt very tall but im 6'2" so he would look short. u all r stupid. hes def 5'6"
Vinny said on 12/Oct/07
Atleast this guy was blessed with musical talent and money because he defiantly got screwed when it comes to height and looks. He looks like a troll.
black said on 10/Oct/07

In the "You" video with Lloyd, Wayne looked about 3 inches shorter. If Lloyd is 5'9", then Wayne is 5'6".

Lloyd is 5'8, not any taller, in that video it looks like 2inches MAX difference.

Rob could you find out Lloyds height? And J. Holidays?
Lil Jc said on 30/Sep/07

16and5'7.25'' said on 6/May/07
lloyd 5'9''??!! are u serious?? he looks 5'6''-5'7'', and lil wayne is 1-1.5'' shorter than him 2'' MAX! there's no way that was a 3'' inch difference between them in that video
andrea said on 15/Apr/07
lil wayne is 5'6 on his police report it even states that and in one of his songs. trust me hes good in bed =]
internatinal-p said on 13/Apr/07
I watch the nick cannon show, and lil wayne was at least 2 inches taller than omarion! so lil wayne is 5:6 like he said it on a mixtape song, and omaion, bow wow and J.D. are 5:4. true story
sweet mommy said on 6/Apr/07
That mean good in bed.
-CG said on 5/Apr/07
Yo he was in south beach last night and he wasn't even at my shoulder.

He's bout 5'2, he is exactly the same height as Trina.
P.s.
he is like bent over like an old guy.
Derek said on 20/Mar/07
In the "You" video with Lloyd, Wayne looked about 3 inches shorter. If Lloyd is 5'9", then Wayne is 5'6".
the shredder said on 21/Feb/07
5'2 ?? No Way , I met him alot of times ! 5'5 ( MAYBE ... 5'6 ?? ) with a 5'4ish impression ! ... If I ever get a pic , I will post ... ONLY if Rob covers my face ! Im now 169cm was 168cm a few months ago and Im 20 !
caliqt610 said on 20/Feb/07
I just saw Lil Wayne this past weekend at the NBA All Star game and he is about 5'2 if that, I'm 5'7' and had to look down at him. but what makes him looks even shorter is his bad posture.
fireman said on 30/Nov/06
i met wanye at a mall in jersey, and im 5'4 and he was like an inch taller than me, so he was about 5'5 or 5'6.
Glenn said on 14/Nov/06
Stood right in front of him.didnt understand my photo request since he was too drunk.5-6ish.
Ball-A-Hallic said on 13/Nov/06
he seems 5'6 but he also seems the type that doesnt care about his height
george said on 3/Sep/06
yeah he's not 5'8, bc we talked at the mall and i was expecting him to be shorter than i was and he was.
Viper652 said on 18/Aug/06
J, how do you know he lies about his age?
J. said on 17/Aug/06
Lil Wayne's police report for a very recent arrest says 5'6", 140: Click Here . So, maybe he's not lying about his height but he sure lies about his age. He claims 1982 for his year of birth when in reality it's 1979. So he's 26 going on 27, not the 23 that he advertises.
Rae said on 30/Jul/06
Hes 5-6 he says it in a rap "5 foot 6 ,nice sized d**k,long ass hair u can pull my s***"

[Editor Rob: any guy who attempts to rap about having a nice sized d*** should automatically be downgraded!]
5'7" (still growin) said on 28/Jul/06
id say hes 5'5-6" (not sure) i saw him in at a concert and he coulnt have been only one inch shorter, so id go with 5ft 5.5in
80's Man said on 26/Jul/06
I dont mean to sound irrational to some, but the reality of it is, is that lil wayne is not 5'4". I know i dont have a photo, but just by the way he's structured you can tell hes probably between 5'5.75" and 5'7". He seens to be abetween 2.5-4 inches shorter than birdman. does anyone know how tall Birdman is. Also hes about 5 or 6 inches shorter than chris brown.

[Editor Rob: here was a picture a 5ft 5 commenter down below sent. You'd have to go on the girls word of 5ft5 and that it is actually her/wayne...the only real pics you can say 100% authentic are glenn and mine]
the shredder said on 19/Jul/06
yes he is 5'4 atleast -5'5 max! he really is just a tad shorter then me ! btw , where is the pic with nikki ? also rob you can make a page for c-murder ! he told me himself ' 6'3 1/2 '!
Shay said on 19/Jul/06
5'6? nah 5'5 just seen him in concert the other day.
Angel-S-N da carter chick said on 17/Jul/06
Lil Wayne is 5 ft 6 becuz it says dat in da add for real u can cheat by lookin in da adds by searchin him.
the shredder said on 13/Jul/06
iam waiting to see the pic you have of him nikki ! all that i know is that hes not taller then me and i have met him about 20 times at the bowling alley and a alot of times other places ! he is 5'5 looking 5'4-ish ! .... btw rob, how come you can't post a comment with internet explorer ?
Nikki said on 12/Jul/06
First off I'm not going to get rude like these other ppl who post something like almost every other day. Like I said, I stood right next to him and unless he had on platform boots....lol...yeah right... he is 5'6 to 5'7.............. and leonari I know how tall I am and I do know what I'm talikng about. STOP being a hater................. next time any of you stand back to back with him or shoulder to shoulder with him let me know.......... seeing and standing next to are two different things......lol........untill then I know that he was 5'6 to 5'7 when I took that pic and hung with him......... :)..... Rob look at the pic that I sent you. Like I said I'm definitely 5'5...........:)
Lil Wayne is 5'6 to 5'7 Prove me wrong............ you can't, cause I'm right............... ;) don't get mad....

[Editor Rob: yes I see this picture you sent, thanks]
leonari said on 10/Jul/06
Honestly and with all due respect ROB: why do you keep this guy at 5'6"? There is absolutely no proof that he is that tall. So ROB but I have never been so sure that you are way off. Look what the others say who have met him. And btw: the pic with P.Diddy proves that he ain't 5'6". Do me this favor: downgrade.(I was right with Elijah Wood and others as well, I'm one of those who always said Sly is around 5'9" not shorter). PLEASE DOWNGRADE.
the shredder said on 10/Jul/06
i have met most of the rappers in the new orleans area . i once asked c-murder's height ( master p's brother , before he went to jail .) i said 'what are you about 6'4' . he said ' na no 6'3 1/2 . my sisters bestfriend has a photo with master p . master p says 6'3 alot she said. my sisters friend is 5'7 and is alot taller then lil wayne with and without heels . before lil wayne was even a * so called celeb * i have seen him alot ... bowling alley's city park's night club 's ... everywhere , and once thing i can say is if lil wayne is 5'7 in barefeet , then i can just go for 5'10 !
Giselle said on 9/Jul/06
lil wayne defintely isn't 5'6 or 5'7. He dined and stayed at the hotel where i work and I am a 5 foot 8 woman and lil wayne was defintely at most 5'4.5 inches. please downgrade lil wayne rob. you are giving pleasure to this man my saying he's 5'6. shredder you hit it on the nose!
leonari said on 8/Jul/06
And liwwayynee faNN: Yeah right everything rappers say in their song is the truth. You figured it out dude. Very smart...I will write a song as well that says I'm 6'4"...Maybe I will be that tall then?? NONSENSE : thats what you are talking...." he said it in the song"...sometimes I have the feeling 12 year old kids visit this forum far too frequently...
leonari said on 8/Jul/06
I agree with the shredder: This guy is truly tiny tiny. Not small. 168 is mall but soemhow still normal. Lil wayne is 5'4.5" on avery good day, 12 hour sleep and perfect posture. And NIKKI: Go measure yourself. I bet you are not 5'5" that would explain why you say absurd things like: Lil Wayne is 5'7". Please: Get real, look at pics...You have truly no clue what you are talking about!
the shredder said on 8/Jul/06
5'6 to 5'7 ? yea right ... i must be 5'8.5 then . lil wayne to me can look from 5'3 to 5'5 , i seen him alot . 2001-ish he looked 5'3-5'4 . 2004ish (last time i saw him .) 5'5ish . he could have reached a legit 5'6 ? hes only in his early 20's. just to add... he was always shorter then me and the last time i checked i was 168cm in barefeet .
Nikki said on 6/Jul/06
I have a pic with LIl Wayne and he is taller than me............. I'm 5'5, so he's gotta be at least 5'6 to 5'7................ What's the deal even if he wasn't he's still sexy so back off..............But for real I'm looking at my pic right now and he was taller than me not a whole lot taller but taller.....like 1 1/2in or maybe even 2in taller...............:)
Say what you want but I have proof............. and I know I'm 5'5 for sure

[Editor Rob: why not send me the pic, blank out your face if you want...]
liwwayynee faNN! said on 25/Jun/06
He is 5ft 7 just like from VA said.. because it mentions it in the song..!!
leonari said on 3/Jun/06
The Shredder is right ROB. This guy is never 5'6"!!! NEVER.
the shredder said on 2/Jun/06
this guy is not 5'6 . ive seen him about 20 times at the bowling alley . iam also from nola and he is lucky to be 5'5. ive also saw him looking 5'3 -5'4 alot. hes shorter then me and iam 167.5 cm will you can just say 168cm - 5'6. i would give him 5'4 .
thomsone said on 15/May/06
I spoke with lil wayne in my hotel a year ago I was surprised to see how short he was compared to the proportionality the producers put on tv. I'm 6'4 so he should be between 5'3 to 5'5.
Pulla said on 27/Mar/06
Lil Wayne height is probly 5 foot 6 in he lives at my house in New Orleans. I see him all the time.
FromVA said on 27/Mar/06
R U serious!!! Every1 on here is actually commenting a Lil Wayne's height? True every1 has there own opinion, but he says in his mixtapes "5 foot 6, nice size dick, long ass hair u can pull my s***" then leave it @ that. No one investigates whether rappers wear real diamonds during video shoots, or even knows if they r renting/borrowing jewelry for a video (and ya'll r arguing about his height like he's ur luver or sumthin, lol). I'm stationed down here in the Heart of New Orleans, been 2 da 17th Ward Hollygrove(by Carrolton/Earhardt Blvd)and da majority of New Orleans population "in general" is short. I'm out and ya'll be easy, but "Young Tomb" aka Weezy F. Baby! is (after Jay-Z) da best Rapper alive... I never get a chance 2 buy his CD's b/c the whole first week he shyt is gone...
Hung Lao said on 25/Mar/06
Lil Wayne is a short ass nigga i am taller then him i am 6'6'' and i can do a 360 windmill jam and between the legs 360 dee brown no look dunk i am the next Jordan and i shall team with yao ming and we shall be like the shaq and kobe duo but better then i will tell the rockets to trade yao then i will win many games this make no sense at all
What???? said on 25/Mar/06
Some of these replies are absurd because first of all I do not know what part of New Orleans some of you are from but if you ever seen Lil' Wayne you know that he is not shorter than 5'6"...sure he is not tall but but yall make him seem minute...and New Orleans is not a city of short people, maybe across the river (westbank) where you claim to be from but in the east we are tall!!!
COOP said on 25/Mar/06
I use to see Wayne all the time in Esplanade Mall (in Kenner, LA) and I am 5'9" and he was above my shoulders...so he is at least 5'6" or 5'7" which is short for a man especially when i see him in Footlock and he is standing next to my boyfriend who is 6'5"...He's still cute!!!
NIc said on 14/Mar/06
I know for a fact Lil Wayne is 5'6". I have been right next to him twice- I'm 5'9" and by best friend is 5'6" we were wearing low tennis shoes at Celeb. Basketball game in MIAMI and they were the same height also Trina is 5'2" and when she wears heals next to him they are right up there with each other.
Sejiz said on 8/Mar/06

to leonari:
yes look at his frame http://www.ozonemag.com/aug2005/600/B-7222.jpg it might be because he has a proportionately bigger head
leonari said on 22/Feb/06
SORRY Rob but you are on the wrong track here...This guy ain't above 5'4". He looks tiny like no other rapper. He has a frame of a child. You should check out some pics, because it's quite rare to see such a small guy exagerated by minimum 2 inches on your great site.
Leslie said on 21/Feb/06
Lil Wayne's height is listed as 5'0 on many websites, including this one http://www.courtneysmusicsite.net/bios.html I saw an episode of Lil Wayne in "Cribs" on MTV - he was standing next to the door. He was standing next to a light switch and his eyes only came up to the top of them. Plus, he is known for wearing high boots (as all short actors are). I totally agree that he is 5 feet tall and not much more.
Man said on 10/Feb/06
In a song he says he's 5ft 6in.
tgri said on 7/Feb/06
ive seen him many times at the bowling alley . 5'3-5'5 was my first guess.
J-Money said on 4/Feb/06
Lil Wayne is one my farvotie rapper I saw him in preson.I AM 5FT7 He a inc shorter then me so he is 5ft6.
Matt G said on 1/Feb/06
lil wayne should be called big monster, i saw him at the Baskin Robins, and he has to be over 6' 8". just a little bit over though, not too much over. maybe a cm or so, that's probably accurate.
g-arm said on 5/Jan/06
where are you guys getting your info? if you watch mtv cribs, when they featured lil wayne's house he stood right next to the fridge and was almost the same height as it (give or take an inche). i personally have that fridge and it's 5'10" tall. from that i deduce that lil wayne is about 5'7" to 5'8" (he was wearing some thick heeled shoes).
Lord Jesus said on 21/Nov/05
Ok, I had to comment on this because this is definately wrong, if Lil Wayne is 5'6 then my grandma has balls.. At the VMA awards he was standing next to Lil Jon in a picture and was a few inches shorter then him.. he's 5'4 tops.
Rach said on 29/Oct/05
I promise you that he is no more than 5'3". I live in New Orleans where he is from and lives and I see him all the time. I'm 4'9" and my boyfriend is 5'4". We've seen him at the movies and talked to him at the mall, and he is quite a bit shorter than my boyfriend. By the way...New Orleans is a very short city. My height is not uncommon at all here.
janova said on 14/Sep/05
yea hes five six i saw him at a vma party in miami this year and he was my height nd im 5'6 on the dot. besides , he says it in alot of his songs proudly , he is definately one whos comfortable with his height
J. said on 6/Sep/05
There was a concert review for Lil Wayne on the 'net a couple months ago. In it, the writer describes Wayne as being 5 foot 8! I think 5'7" is more like it, personally.
CoolJ said on 6/Sep/05
If memory serves correct, in the music video "I need a soulja" by Destiny's Child, the Destiny girls absolutely dwarfed Lil Wayne.

I remember thinking at that point he could be no more than 5'4". Then again, they may have had monsterous heels on. I think 5'5" is probably more realistic. They don't call him "Lil" for nothing.
