Mother told Lil Wayne to quit school



London, Sep 8 (PTI) Rapper Lil Wayne says his mother told him to quit school when he was 14 so that he could focus on his music career.

The 30-year-old singer, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, however, said he will be stricter on his own kids and encourage them to finish their education first, reported Contactmusic.

The ''Lollipop'' hitmaker has four children, Reginae, 15, Dwayne III, five, Cameron, four, and Neal, also four, from four different relationships.

"I mean, kids please finish high school, and all my kids, you are finishing high school, but it was my mom''s idea (for him to drop out)," Wayne said.

"I had an album out. I was platinum already, thank God, and I was still trying to go to regular public school and she stopped me getting ready for school one day... she said, ''you don''t go to school no more, you''re getting a GED (General Educational Development certificate).'' I said okay," Wayne said.
