Is He The "Old-Ass Rapper" Lil Wayne Is Rapping About? Like Bun B, just about every Southern rapper owes at least a part of their success to 'Face. He helped popularize Southern rap music. And while it could be argued that he hasn't had a serious impact on the game in recent years, we doubt Wayne would fault him for that and take a shot at him. Respect the OG's gangster, youngster.
