[photogallerylink id=135642 align=right]Last year, Wiz Khalifa made headlines when he graced the Forbes Magazine‘s Richest Rapper list at No. 11, raking in about 11 Million in touring, merchandise, and album sales. This year, he intends to expand his money exponentially. As in make 10-times what he made last year. Yes, you read correctly, Young Khalifa claimed he will make $100 million in 2012 and his new mixtape, Taylor Allderdice, will be the catalyst.
While at the listening party for his new mix tape, the Taylor Gang general sounded off on his lofty goals.”Oh yeah, man, I’m going to make $100 million this year,” he said. “No doubt, $100 million. The new mixtape [will] get everybody ready and get their wallets open.”
Banking $100 million on the buzz of a free mix tape sounds like a crazy idea, but have you seen Wiz? That’s exactly the kind of idea a guy like that has: out there! But we like his ambition.
Still, when you break down the numbers and factor in that Jay-Z only netted 37 million last year and he was at the TOP of the list, it seems like the Taylor Gang still has a ways to go. But hey, make your way up that list, Wiz. No hating over here!
