Lil Wayne Reportedly Settles $14 Million Tax Debt

Weezy's finances seem to be in a better place.

(AllHipHop News) Tax Day 2019 is just two weeks away, and many Americans are rounding up receipts in order to file the proper paperwork for the IRS. Meanwhile, Dwayne "Lil Wayne" Carter was dealing with tax liens from 2017.

According to The Blast, Wayne has paid $14,194,944 to cover his debt to the federal government. The Young Money rapper owed $7,341,399 from 2011 and $6,853,545 from 2012.

Carter was in a $51 million legal battle with Cash Money Records over his shelved Tha Carter V album and unpaid royalties. He reportedly reached a settlement with CMR co-founder Bryan 'Birdman' Williams and Universal Music Group last year.

The 36-year-old superstar was finally able to release Tha Carter V in 2018. His twelfth studio LP debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 chart with 480,000 first-week units and was certified platinum by the RIAA.

As far as his money issues with Uncle Sam, Lil Wayne told the crowd at a December concert in Chicago that his musical idol helped him with the situation. He said, “Jay don’t want me to tell nobody. That man helped me with my taxes. He’s a real friend.”
