In a recent interview with veteran rap star Lil Wayne posted on Twitter, the rapper had to let his fans know that the numbers that Google has listed as his net worth are completely fake. Lil Wayne was recently a guest on the Culture Millennials show, where he was asked if his public net worth was in the ballpark of what Google published, to which Wayne replied, “I don’t have a cent close to that s**t.”
Based on public information garnered from a Google search, Wayne is allegedly worth $160 million. Wayne reportedly earns approximately $600,000 for any show he is booked for. Wayne went further to explain that he thinks that Google is referring to his value as a rapper rather than the amount of money he actually has.
In addition, he stated that he uses Google’s figures as a motivational tool and even joked about calling his manager and telling him he would fire him because he’s worth a zillion dollars.
Lil Wayne is extremely well known for his contribution to hip-hop and is seen as one of the biggest and most talented rappers currently.
The 40-year-old rapper’s given name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., and he was born on September 27. He was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, and made his debut after he caught the attention of Cash Money Records.
