How do you add weight to hanging leg raise?

Don't neglect your obliques. Any sort of twisting exercise shall do - medicine ball twists, russian twists, cable wood-choppers, etc.
Also keep in mind that you don't always want to go heavy with weighted ab exercises. You're trying to build a small, lean, tight core... not a thick bulging one. It'll take away from your V taper.

Exactly what I was thinking!

Those exercises are fine. Just remember that visible abs come from low body fat, not from ab exercises. But it's fine to train the abs and strengthen your core muscles.
