Lil Wayne Net Worth $135 Million

Lil Wayne is an American rapper with a net worth of $135 million.  He made major headlines when he was signed to Cash Money Records aged just 9. After signing to the record label, he formed a hip hop group called Hot Boys. They achieved major success with their album Guerrilla Warfare. After tasting success at such an early age, Lil Wayne was certainly hungry for more.  

 Lil Wayne’s insatiable hunger for success was unmatched; so he decided to continue his career as a solo act. In 1999, Lil Wayne released his first studio album Tha Block is Hot to great fanfare and success. They album went platinum and it gave Lil Wayne further confidence. A release of series of albums followed including Lights Out and 500 Degreez and Tha Carter and also Tha Carter II etc. 

The rapper reached the pinnacle of his career when he dropped Tha Carter III. The album sold over a million copies in its first week. It epitomized Lil Wayne’s high status in the Hip Hop industry. It only got better when the album won the Grammy Award for the Best Rap Album category. After that, Lil Wayne ventured into unknown territory. He released a rock album titled Rebirth. It received a lukewarm response. 

Growing up, Lil Wayne changed plenty of schools. He studied in Eleanor McMain Secondary School and Marion Abramson Senior High School. Although the rapper was an honor student in school, he was wise enough to follow his dreams and focus on his musical career.

Lil Wayne stared death in the eyes when he shot himself with a gun accidentally.  He was lucky to have an off-duty officer near him to take him to the hospital. Tha Carter V will be his last album. He has confirmed it on 2 occasions; once in 2012 and most recently in March 2014 during his interview with Elliot Wilson.
