The Internal Revenue Service has filed a tax lien for over $5.6 million against rap singer Lil Wayne.

The $5,610,034 lien was filed against the 28-year-old hip-hop performer on March 28 in Miami, according to the Detroit News. The lien is for his 2008 and 2009 taxes.

Lil Wayne, who real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., has experienced tax problems in previous years as well. Last year, the IRS filed a lien against him for $1,138,760 against him for his 2004, 2005 and 2007 taxes (see IRS Files $1.13M Tax Lien against Lil Wayne). He paid off that lien in December, according to the Detroit News.

Last year, he was also jailed on weapons charges and served eight months of a one-year sentence on Rikers Island in New York. He was released last November and is currently on a concert tour that he began in March.
