Forbes: Highest-Paid Stars Under 30

4 of 12

8. Lil Wayne

Age: 29

Pay: $27 million

The diminutive rhymester had his most lucrative year yet, thanks in part to new album "Carter IV," which sold nearly 1 million copies in its opening week last summer. But the bulk of his earnings came from playing over 50 shows in the past 12 months, grossing upwards of $600,000 per night. Expect Lil Wayne to keep getting bigger; he also launched a clothing line, Trukfit, and inked his first big endorsement deal, a multimillion dollar pact with Pepsi's Mountain Dew.
