Wow. Just when we thought last year’s news that Lil Wayne owed the IRS $1.1 million was ridiculous, we find out that he now owes more than that. A lot more than that, to be exact. According to Detroit News, the IRS filed a tax lien against the rapper last Monday for $5.6 million. It apparently stems from the money he owes from his income taxes for 2008 and ’09. I shudder to think how much that amount will be next year, considering he made a reported $20 million in 2010. Weezy, just get a goddamn accountant. And if you have one, fire him or her and get a new one. Jesus.
Wayne’s forthcoming album, Tha Carter IV, is due out May 16.
