Lil Wayne is set to face a $1.13 million (£742,411) tax bill when he leaves prison.

The rapper has been officially ordered to pay the US Internal Revenue Service, according to Florida court documents.

He apparently owes tax from 2004, 2005 and 2007, reports the Detroit Free Press.

Wayne previously settled a $977,000 (£641,000) bill in 2008.

The rapper is currently serving a one-year prison sentence for gun crimes, stemming from an incident in 2007 in New York, where police officers found a handgun on his tourbus.

Wayne is also working on a new EP, called 'I'm Not A Human Being'. It's due out digitally on his birthday of September 27, while he is serving his sentence.
