During an interview with Culture Millennials, Lil Wayne was asked about Google’s claim that his net worth was $160 million.
According to Marca, the rapper, whose estimated earning is claimed online to be $600,000 per show, was quick to dispel the rumour, stating that he did not have a penny close to that amount.
However, he acknowledged that the figure was often meant to indicate his worth.
He joked that he Googled himself and found that he was worth a zillion dollars, which served as motivation for him.
Lil Wayne quipped about his net worth situation after it was revealed that fellow rapper Jay-Z’s net worth was now $2.5 billion, and is now the 1,203rd richest person in the world.
Industry insiders estimate that Lil Wayne performs at least 50 times a year, earning him a considerable income.
“I Googled that, you know what I mean? I’m like I’m a zillion-dollar n-gga on Google bro … It’s motivation, that’s all. It’s just motivation.”
