For the past couple of years it hasn’t been only raining but it’s been pouring rather hard for Louisiana rapper Lil Wayne, who has been hit with tax lien after tax lien in recent years. It’s been reported that Weezy has forked over $14 million to the United States government. For years, he has been in trouble with Uncle Sam due to unpaid taxes, causing him to be, on multiple occasions, hit with tax liens.
In February 2011, Wayne paid off a $1.13 million tax lien and later on the year he was hit with another lien, this time for $5.6 million. By 2012, the rapper paid $7 million to the IRS to get them off of his back, but in 2016, it was reported that he owed them $900,000.
You’d think that with that many run-ins with the government, a person would get a new accountant and fall in line, but in 2017 Wayne found himself in more financial trouble. According to The Blast, the rapper was once again hit with liens, this time for that as the government alleged he failed to pay $7,341,399.07 in 2011 and $6,853,545.77 in 2012, making it a total of $14,194,944.84.
Just a few months ago while performing in Chicago, Wayne had a vulnerable moment when he shared something with the crowd. He took a moment to thank Jay Z, someone he said was more than just a supporter as a friend and musical collaborator, but as a person who helped him financially.
“There’s people like JAY Z. He helped me when I was really, really, really down. Really, really, really down,” Wayne said. “Jay don’t want me to tell nobody. That man helped me with my taxes. He’s a real friend, y’all
