Lil Wayne might love poppin’ bands, but the one thing he isn’t poppin’ is money to Uncle Sam.
According to a tax lien obtained by TMZ, the rapper failed to pay his taxes for the years 2011 and 2012. The lien states that Weezy owes nearly $5,843,952 for 2011 and a staggering $6,311,132 for 2012. And in case you aren’t the best with math, that is over $12 million.
This isn’t the first time Mr. Carter has had problems with the IRS. In 2008-2009, the 31-year-old owed a reported $7 million for back taxes, but cleared his debt in 2012.
Aside from the rapper’s legal problems, expect to hear new music from the New Orleans native soon. Weezy is expected to drop his forthcoming compilation, Young Money: Rise of an Empire on March 11.
