Be it Dr Dre and Eminem, Lil' Wayne and Drake or Jay Z and Kanye West, every artist in the industry started out with a mentor that showed them the way. These are their stories.
In 1991, when he was just eight-years-old, Lil' Wayne met Bryan Williams aka Birdman, rapper and owner of Cash Money Records. The story goes that Wayne would leave messages rapping on Birdman's answer phone - and eventually Birdman became the father and mentor he never had. Lil' Wayne has since been handed the Cash Money torch with his imprint Young Money. Photo: PA
