How much is Lil Wayne worth? Wayne is worth $95 million—a fortune that places him in the top 10 on Celebrity Net Worth’s list of the richest rappers alive. Weezy’s $95 million lands him at no. 10, right ahead of Kanye West, who’s sitting on a mere $90 million. The heavily tattooed Cash Money MC would be even wealthier were he to get paid by the word, as he’s dropped some 10 studio full-lengths, a remix album, 25 mixtapes, and no fewer than 134 singles.

Through it all, he keeps churning out records, so the other rhymers on that money list had better watch out.
