Lil Wayne's home neighborhood in New Orleans, Louisiana, located in the city's 17th Ward. This low, flood-prone area within the city limits was little developed until booms in the 1920s and 1960s. Hollygrove, along with most of the city, flooded in the catastrophic failure of the Federal levee system during Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The population consists of 45% Caucasian, 40% African American, and 15% Latino and Asian.
