As of 2022, Lil Wayne’s net worth is roughly $150 Million.
Lil Wayne, or Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., is an American rapper from New Orleans, Louisiana. Wayne is one of the richest rappers in the world and started achieving success in the rap game when he was only 9 years old.
This article talks a little about his life, career, and how he managed to make all that money by the young age of 38.
Dwayne was born in New Orleans on the 27th of September 1982. His mother was 19 when she had Wayne, and his father abandoned their family when Wayne was only 2 years old.
It’s safe to say that Lil Wayne’s childhood was very, very different to most. He wrote his very first rap song when he was only 8 years old, and accidentally shot himself with a 9mm handgun when he was only 9.
Carter was an honour student at McMain Magnet School, but he dropped out at only 14 to focus on his musical career.
In 1996, Carter joined the Hot Boys along with rappers Juvenile, B.G., and Turk. He was only 15 years old, making him the youngest member of the group at the time.
3 years later, Lil Wayne went solo, and released his debut album ‘The Block is Hot, which was a major success, reaching platinum certification. He leveraged the album’s success to release a couple of others within the following few years and put himself on the map.
Since then, Lil Wayne has become a sensation, working with many famous artists, including Drake, Nicki Minaj, DJ Khaled, Eminem, and so on. He’s also received a large number of awards for his work and collaborations with others; some of which are listed below.
As of 2022, Lil Wayne’s net worth is $150 Million.
