We all hear trivia about our favorite rappers. But more than the standard facts about where they grew up or what their original rap name was (hello J. Cole—excuse me, Blaza), what really grabs us are those wild things that no one else seems to know. 

So we've decided to compile a dozen crazy, you'd-never-have-guessed facts about your favorite rappers to share with you. From Lil Wayne to Jay Z, Kendrick to Cardi B, we dug deep to find out a bunch of little-known information—including some things the artists would probably rather keep hidden. Sources are listed, so you can check our work.
