Leave Hollygrove

Although Lil Wayne grew up in a broken family (his father left when Wayne was just a kid), the future millionaire was an excellent student. In addition to attending his elementary school’s gifted program, Lil Wanted was an honor student in middle school before dropping out at the age of 14 to pursue his music career full time.

The prodigy wrote his first rap when he was just eight years old, and a year later he was discovered by Bryan “Baby” Williams, co-founder of Cash Money Records. Wayne was officially added to the Cash Money roster when he was 12 years old and was soon on his way to stardom.

Mega album sales

What is Lil Wayne's mega album sales net worth?

For many artists, album sales aren’t exactly the key to riches, especially after record labels take their big cut. But when you’re Lil Wayne and you sell over 120 million records worldwide, all those royalties add up.

Wayne’s first album, Tha Block Is Hot, debuted on the Billboard Top 200 three places early on and eventually went platinum. While the next two follow-up albums struggled to gain the same traction, that all changed when the first album in the Tha Carter series was released to instant smash success in 2004.

Young Money Entertainment

In 2005, Lil Wayne decided to launch his own record label called Young Money Entertainment. To date, the label has released a total of 14 chart-topping albums, including four by Lil Wayne himself, a handful of titles by Canadian rapper Drake, and Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday and Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. YME also works with Mack Maine (who is also the president of the company), Cory Gunz and Lil Twist.

In June 2020, Lil Wayne made the big move of selling not only his own master recordings, but also those of fellow former and current Young Money artists Tyga and Minaj. The buyer, Universal Music Group, paid $100 million for the massive collection, which likely resulted in a pretty hefty payday for Wayne and his business associates.
