They say leaving your 20s and turning 30 is a wake-up call that you're getting old. For Lil Wayne, age isn’t anything but number. Today, the Best Rapper Alive turns 31—which considering all of his accomplishments—it’s a joyous occasion that calls for a celebration. XXL has been down with Wayne since his early days in the Hot Boys and decided to put together a little birthday present for him. Sifting through hundreds of his tracks, we gathered 31 of Weezy’s wittiest lines, from his deepest cuts to well-known bangers. Still stayin’ sharp. —Complied By Eric Diep & C. Vernon Coleman
