Look at that sweet little face! The artist in this yearbook picture is much more rough-around-the-edges lately, using his sharp tongue and impeccable wit to create chart-topping records. Can you guess what his name is?

When this photo was taken, this guy was just a little tyke growing up in Detroit. We doubt he wears much flannel nowadays, trading it in for leather jackets, sparkling chains and an envious sneaker collection. When he isn't taking care of his daughter, this rap giant loses himself in the music, dishing out hit after hit about a variety of subjects, from overcoming difficult struggles in life (drug addiction, abuse, etc.) to just "cracking" a few bottles with his boys.
