Little Lil' Wayne is adorable.

You’ve all heard the joke. Pharrell Williams is a vampire. He doesn’t age. Watch him frolic today and you’ll see the same face that crooned on Mystikal’s “Shake Ya Ass.”

BUT HE DOES AGE. Here he is in 1991 as an 18-year-old baby. Look how fresh faced!

So what about your other favourite rappers? What did Diddy look like in school? Eminem? Wale? And is Will Smith the real immortal MC?

Check out the gallery above to see your favourite MCs as their moms might remember them.
