Lil Wayne Net Worth 2014 – 2015: $142 Million
There’s no doubt that Lil Wayne is currently the best rapper in the world, in fact, he’s been the best for the last 10 years or so, I mean there are other great rappers out there like 50 cent, Kanye West, P. Diddy and Drake, but Lil Wayne is just in a whole nother league, the only word I can think of to describe this young man is “Genius”, he was blessed with poetic skills and he used them to transform the entire rap industry.
Lil Wayne has had so much success thanks to his incomparable ability to create hundreds of amazing tracks in a very short period of time, he reminds me of Tupac Shakur who also produced great music at an extremely fast pace, Wayne is also very versatile, he has a lot of different styles and tones but all of them are unique and belong only to him. Since the beginning of his career he has been constantly evolving and getting better, he is now a master of his art, he’s kept on going with unreal determination, always trying to be the best, always trying to beat the best, and he’s done a great job at it.
I remember the first time I saw Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. perform, it was in one of Juvenile’s videos, he was featured in “Back That Azz Up” which was one of the biggest hits ever released by Juvenile, in fact, I think it was his biggest hit and it was also the song that brought the public’s attention to Lil Wayne. From that moment on he started making nothing but hits, one after another, even as part of the group “Hot Boys” he was very successful, releasing major albums such as “Get it How U Live!” and “Guerrilla Warfare”.
As a solo artist Lil Wayne’s career has been like a dream, a good dream that is, first he released “Tha Block is Hot” followed by a major streak of best selling albums such as “Lights Out”, “500 Degreez”, “Tha Carter”, “Tha Carter 2”, “Tha Carter 3”, “Like Father Like Son” with Birdman, “Rebirth”, “Tha Carter IV”, and most recently “Rich Gang”. All of the albums that I just mentioned have been a commercial success, some in the US, others worldwide, several of his albums have been certified gold and platinum by the RIAA.
All of Dwayne’s money comes from the music business, he’s made millions as a singer and he is now making millions as a record producer, in 2005 he launched his own record label called “Young Money Entertainment” which is responsible for the success of many rappers such as Drake, Nicki Minaj, Tyga, Jae Millz, Corey Gunz, and many more. His great advantage in the music business is that he’s not only a terrific performer, he has a great ear and sense of rhythm that’s why he’s been able to choose his artists so well, even though he does not have quantity and by that I mean a high volume of known artists signed to his label he does have quality, therefore, they are able to sell more albums than most major rap studios.
Dwayne Carter will keep on making a lot of money throughout the following years without a doubt, even if his record label doesn’t sell he will, because he is an international star with fans everywhere in the world, hip-hop fans are always waiting for new Lil Wayne songs, in fact, a lot of people I know don’t even like rap, but they do love Wayne’s music and they are always waiting for something new to come out.
But, how much is Lil Wayne really worth? According to several magazines and online media outlets Dwayne Carter has an estimated net worth of $135 million dollars, however, after making our own calculations and taking his most recent work into account we have come to the conclusion that he’s a little bit richer than what most people say, we believe that Dwayne is worth $142 million approximately. Yes, he’s very rich and Forbes Magazine confirms it, Little Wayne was ranked #69 in the 2012 100 Richest Celebrities list.
