Lil Wayne Settles $1.13 Million Tax Bill


Lil Wayne


The rapper fully paid his taxes three weeks after he was released from New York's Rikers Island prison.

Rapper Lil Wayne has settled a $1.13 million unpaid tax bill. U.S. government officials filed papers in Dade County Florida Circuit Court last June alleging the "Lollipop" hitmaker owed income taxes from 2004, 2005 and 2007.

The documents were submitted while the star, real name Dwayne Carter, Jr., was part-way through his year-long gun possession sentence in New York's Rikers Island prison. He was released from jail early, on November 4 - and less than three weeks later, on November 24, he settled his tax bill in full, according to papers obtained by The Detroit News.

He now has less weight to begin the "I Am Still Music" tour. Supported by Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross and drummer Travis Barker, the tour kicks off March 18 in Buffalo, New York.
