Lil Wayne Claims His Google Net Worth Is Incorrect, But Not In The Way You'd Think

The Young Money boss said that he's a "zillion dollar" figure when disputing his listed $160 million net worth on the search engine, although not in the way that you'd think.

When you're as talented, successful, and beloved as Tunechi, it's hard to put a price on you. Lil Wayne recently refuted his Google net worth, listed at $160 million, during an interview with Culture Millennials. Moreover, he spoke on how claims of how much he's worth are nowhere near what he actually has. However, before you think he's boasting, he actually downplayed the amount and said that he doesn't have that kind of cash. Sure, he acknowledged that it's nice to have people think he's worth that much, but still refused to really bank on it.

"Honestly, I’m gonna let everybody know now,” Weezy remarked. “When you go check a motherf***er’s net worth and that s**t be saying some crazy numbers, I don’t have a cent close to that s**t. Yeah, I don’t have that, but I guess they be meaning that’s what I’m worth. So I be always calling my agent and being like, ‘I’m telling you, bro, I’m gonna fire the s**t out of you ’cause I don’t need you.’ I Googled that, you know what I mean? I’m like I’m a zillion dollar n***a on Google bro … It’s motivation, that’s all. It’s just motivation."

Lil Wayne Dismisses His Net Worth

Furthermore, this discussion probably relates back to a recent story on how Jay-Z's net worth reached $2.5 billion, according to Forbes. In fact, this is a massive step-up for Hov, considering Forbes valued his worth at $1.4 billion just a year ago. While it's nearly double the original amount, the publication didn't detail how it got to such an estimate. As such, a lot of people responded with both high praise and raised eyebrows, along with the typical discussion of what all that money is really worth.

Regardless, much of the Carter series icon's worth sparked debate in another, and for a lot of people, much more serious way. Moreover, the culture traded takes on who would win in a Verzuz battle: him or 50 Cent. Decisions seemed almost split even wherever you looked, with even strong advocates for either acknowledging that it's not an easy call to make. Regardless, it's the kind of debate that's much more fun that the numbers, because we'll never really know the answer.
