Rappers with Lil in their name do not all measure up

In hip-hop bigger is better. Big rims, big-faced Rollies, big stacks of cash, and big jewels. One of the few exceptions to that rule is in rappers’ names. Using the prefix “Lil” in a rapper’s name has been a popular habit in hip-hop for some time now. BuzzFeed decided to dig around and see just how little these Lil rappers are and the results were surprising. Sure, Bow Wow and Romeo ditched the Lil after outgrowing the term because of their age, and Lil Kim would probably have trouble meeting the height requirements on some roller coasters, but there are definitely some rappers who are not as vertically challenged as their name would suggest. We’re looking at you, Lil Flip.
