Lil Wayne's mother told him to quit school

Lil Wayne's mother encouraged him to drop out of high school.

The 30-year-old rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, claims his mother advised him to quit school when he was 14 so he could focus on his music career but insists he will be stricter on his own kids.

The 'Lollipop' hitmaker, who has four children, Reginae, 15, Dwayne III, five, Cameron, four, and Neal, also four, from four different relationships, told Katie Couric in a new interview that will air on her U.S. talk show on Monday (09.09.13) that he has no regrets about his decision.

He said: "Not at all. 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).

"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 was walking past the room, I'll never forget she was on the phone with somebody talking loud and she walked past my room and she saw me putting my bag on my back and she said, 'you going to bring that to school with you?' and I remember I asked her, 'you don't want me to bring it?' and she thought about it and said, 'I do.'

"Two minutes later she walked back into the room and she was still on the phone and said, 'you don't go to school no more, you're getting a GED (General Educational Development certificate).' I said okay."

He added: "So I got a GED and went to college."

The rapper recently admitted he has epilepsy after suffering a number of seizures earlier this year and nearly died when his heart rate decreased to "30 per cent" in March, which saw him spend a week in intensive care.
