Lil Wayne Makes Forbes Celebrity 100 List

Lil Wayne Makes Forbes Celebrity 100 List

Lil Wayne is being recognized again, this time it is in a very big way. Forbes recently released their annual The Celebrity 100 list and it features Weezy for the first time ever. Wayne comes in at #74 and is the only rapper to make the list other than Jay-Z (Ranked #15) and Diddy (Ranked #68). You can read what Forbes said about Lil Wayne below and tell us what you think of this major accomplishment in the comments.

Not even jail could stop Lil Wayne from making his first appearance on the Forbes Celebrity 100. Sentenced in March to a year in the pen for weapons possessions, the rapper managed to earn his hefty total from his new album Rebirth, proceeds from guest appearances and a healthy dose of touring where he grossed over $500,000 per show. Wayne is already making plans for a new album, Tha Carter IV, upon his release.
