Lil Wayne Owes $5.6 Million in Taxes, Teams With Mary J. Blige and Rick Ross

Just in case you were wondering, Lil Wayne makes a lot of money. Just think about how much he must have saved while he was in prison and not constantly purchasing lollipops. In any case, the IRS dropped a massive tax lien on Weezy last week in Miami. Let's hope that he's got a good chunk of change riding on his NCAA Men's Basketball bracket.

Coincidentally, he'll be in town for Tuesday's performance at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise along with Rick Ross, Travis Barker, Nicki Minaj, our boy Lil Twist, and more.

According to the Detroit News' Tax Watchdog, the $5,610,034 he owes is even bigger than the $1.13 mil lien he paid off in December.

So, back to the making-money part of it. In addition to his "I Am Music II Tour," the rapper appears on a couple of new, high-profile collaborations that emerged today.

First, we have an appearance on Rick Ross' "9 Piece," which is about the 100th time these South Floridians have appeared on the same track. This is reportedly the first single from Ross' upcoming God Forgives, I Don't album.

More fascinatingly, Weezy hops on Mary J. Blige's new single, "Someone to Love Me (Naked)." Reported by Rap-Up, this fierce jam (also featuring Diddy) is the appetizer for My Life II: The Journey Continues, coming in September. There's never been an MJB track quite like this before. Check out the video, which features a lot of people getting real paid.
