There’s no denying that Dwayne Carter goes hard, especially when you factor in the numbers that The Carter 3 amassed.

Seventy-eight shows after headlining arenas and amphitheaters across North America from Dec. 14, 2008, through Sept. 6, 2009, Lil Wayne & Co. have earned $42 million dollars. Both tours together garnered nearly 804,000 fans according to Lil Wayne tour producer and tour business manager Shawn Gee. Props to Lil Wayne for headlining the highest grossing hip-hop tour of the year.

Quick Facts:

  1. Jay-Z/Mary J. Blige 2008 Tour  – $34.6 million, 310,694 fans @ 28 shows
  2. Kanye West’s 2008 Glow In the Dark  Tour – $30.8 million, 507,853 fans @ 49 concerts
