Lil Wayne Pays Off Almost $8 Million Tax Bill
Lil Wayne is hustling forward. The YMCMB rapper and skateboard enthusiast has paid over $7.72 million in back taxes he owed the IRS that date back as far as 2002.
Gossip Extra reports that Weezy paid his bill after the IRS put not one or two but three liens on his properties. According to Miami-Dade County records, Tunechi owed $3.6M snd 2.3M in taxes 2008 and $2,258,956 in 2008 and 2009 alone, respectively. The IRS came after the “No Worries” rapper last year when they found out he was trying to sell his 15,000 square foot Miami Beach mansion for $11.6M.
If Uncle Sam gets about 30% and Weezy paid almost $8 milli in taxes…you do the math. The IRS isn’t the only entity getting some of Wayne’s funds. In November, the rapper took an L in a lawsuit he brought forth against Quincy Jones III over the release of The Carter documentary. A jury awarded QD3 $2.2M for lost profits after Tune berated the film before its release.
Lately, after some health issues, Weezy has been spotted about town at various NBA and college basketball games. The New Orlean’s natives latest album, I Am Not A Human Being 2, is now scheduled to drop on February 19, 2013.
