In the world of hip hop, many artists have adopted "Lil," a popular prefix typically perceived as the short form of "little," as part of their stage names.

Among rappers, who often spell it with an apostrophe as "Lil'" or "Li'l" as well as simply "Lil," this moniker is shared by at least a baker's dozen.

Rap music in general remains a male-dominated genre with a few notable exceptions, and the use of Lil is no different in terms of gender breakdown.

Some of the better known users of Lil are anything but when it comes to success, having put up big time sales, while others are ... well, Lil known.

From bona fide hit-makers to those we've only heard of because they crash with Justin Bieber, let's take a look at 13 rappers who go by Lil below!

Promoted by Live Nation, the tour kicks off on August 8 at the Darien Lake Performing Arts Center in Darien Center, N.Y., before heading westward.

The duo will make stops in multiple locations across America, with shows planned in Chicago, Atlanta, San Francisco, Houston, Dallas and L.A.

Drake will also anchor the fifth year of his annual OVO Fest in Toronto August 4.

This will be the second tour this year for Drizzy, whose Would You Like a Tour? was a smash hit with sold-out crowds across North America and Europe.

Meanwhile, Weezy has been hard at work on Tha Carter V, which he has said will be his final album; Drake will serve as executive producer on the project.

The Young Money Entertainment crew is sticking up for Justin Bieber.

Speaking on behalf of his company, President Mack Maine tells TMZ that he's viewed the Justin Bieber N Word video - along with the footage of Bieber referencing the KKK - and that he has no hard feelings against the artist.

"Bieber does not have a slave mentality. He treats his people with respect," Maine says.

Maine goes on to say Bieber has "legitimately adopted the culture of the hip hop, African American culture,” that his actions speak a lot louder than these immature words.

Chris Brown’s new music video for "Loyal" was released today, even with the singer currently in solitary confinement and unable to watch it ... bummer man.

The video, featuring Lil Wayne and Tyga with a cameo from Usher, is all about ... loyalty. It shows Breezy singing the refrain, "These hoes ain’t loyal."

“I don’t f--k with broke b!tches,” he adds, presumably because them hoes be hangin' around just lookin' to get wit him for his money. Or so we're assuming.

There’s also a baby tiger on a leash in the clip for some reason.

Whether these hoes be “Loyal” or not, his loyal fans will be happy to know that the track will be on Brown's album X, which is finally set to be released in May.

He has said that X will be his last album, but we doubt this.

Unless he's sent away to prison for years (which actually isn't out of the realm of possibility), Brown is likely to make more music, if only to pay legal bills.

Deez hoes ain't loyal. So sayeth Chris Brown on his new track, featuring Lil Wayne and French Montana, and the message of the R&B track is clear.

The single opens with Weezy rapping about his lack of trust in female companions. Chris Brown joins in, commenting on their gold-digging tendencies.

"Loyal" is expected to be featured on the controversial singer's upcoming album, X. Due out in 2014, the record may be Brown's last, or so he claims.

He took to Twitter this year to tease his exit from music: "Don't worry mainstream America. After this X album, it'll probably be my last album," he wrote.

"Being famous is amazing when it's for [your] music and talent," he went on. "I'm tired of being famous for a mistake I made when i was 18. I'm cool & over it!"

Okay. Well, either way, take a listen to Chris Brown's latest "music" below ...

Paris Hilton's music video for her new song “Good Time” featuring Lil Wayne has dropped. And it's ... not as bad as you might think a Paris Hilton song is.

To celebrity gossip fans who started reading celebrity gossip after 2008, Paris Hilton was Kim Kardashian before Kim Kardashian was Kim Kardashian.

In fact, Kim and Paris used to be like friends! Crazy!

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. The socialite has been trying to launch a music career for years actually, and has been signed to Weezy's label.

Check out the video below and tell us what you think ...

Weezy says all she know is s--k, f--k. But it's not terrible!

Just want to say thank you to everybody! I am so happy that you all love #GoodTime!” the 32-year-old one-time celebrity wrote on her Twitter account.

“I have the best fans in the world! Love you guys!”

Paris Hilton is teasing a sample of her new song with Lil Wayne (yes, this exists), and it contains some lyrical brilliance that must be heard to be believed.

The track, called, "Good Times," features Weezy rapping about some very good times with an unnamed female. Maybe it's Hilton herself. Who can say.

But the verse goes like this ...

"I'm f--ked up ... I can't tell you what's what. All she know is suck, f--k. I walked up to a big butt, and asked her ass but what ... Tunechi never slacks without her button up."

That's pretty much our reaction as well.

As for why they're collaborating, Paris is actually signed to Lil Wayne's Young Money label. On "Good Times," she "sings" the hook, which goes like ...

Lil Wayne has released the music video for "God Bless Amerika," and there's no sign of him trampling the U.S. flag, which he was infamously seen doing on set.

Wayne said he didn't step on the flag on purpose (sounds like BS) and had no excuse for the fact that the flag being on the ground is kind of a no-no anyway.

It appears he got the message, though, because during the flag dropping scene, the video is edited in a way that never shows Old Glory on the ground:

The rapper took major heat last month when photos of him stepping all over the flag while filming "God Bless Amerika" surfaced on the Internets.

He gave a half-assed excuse (not unlike during the Emmett Till controversy), but in this case, apparently decided to nip this drama in the bud.

Flag or no flag, what do you think of his new video?

Lil Wayne stomped on an American flag over the weekend.

He's filming a music video for "God Bless Amerika" in his hometown of New Orleans, and it all started off harmlessly enough, with Weezy rapping in front of the flag.

Old Glory is then released to the ground - already a big no-no, as we learned on Flag Day - at which point Wayne continues to rap, while stomping on it.

Check out the footage from Wayne's video shoot below:

The lyrics, believe it or not, are just as controversial, which isn't shocking from a man who infamously rapped about beating up a p---y like Emmett Till.

"My country 'tis of thee / Sweet land of kill 'em all and let 'em die / God bless Amerika / This ole' godless Amerika," raps the lightning rod that is Tunechi.

It's his constitutional right to do this, of course ... but that doesn't mean people will line up to defend him. We're anticipating quite the opposite in fact.

What's your take on the situation?

Lil Wayne Quotes

Lil Wayne: I don't do too many [drugs]. I just smoke weed and drink. But I'll never fuck with no more coke. It's not about the bad high; it's just about the acne: Cocaine makes your face break out. I'm a pretty boy.

The world is about to end in 2012… ’cause the Mayans made calendars, and they stop at 2012. I got encyclopedias on the bus. The world is about to end as we know it. You can see it already. A planet doesn't exist - there's no more Pluto. Planes are flying into buildings - and not just the Twin Towers. Mosquitos bite you and you die. And a black man and a woman are running for president.
