Wiz Khalifa landed on Forbes’ annual Hip Hop Cash Kings list in 2011, netting $11 million from touring, merchandising and album sales. During an interview with Forbes.com at his Taylor Allderdice listening party, the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania rapper said that he plans on adding another digit to his income by the end of 2012.
“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.”
Forbes estimates that he pulls in an average of $70,000 from concerts on a nightly basis, which will most likely increase to $100,000 per night by the end of the year. He is currently gearing up for his mixtape release, as well as his sophomore album O.N.I.F.C.
