Controversial rapper Tyga is racking up the dough!
While he may have moved out of Kylie Jenner's house thanks to being "belittled" on her family's reality series, there turns out to be a lot more to the “Rack City” rapper's bank account than we thought.
Despite landlord drama and legal woes — most recently, being arrested for running a stop sign and driving without proper license plates — the famous father-of-one still has quite a pretty penny to his name.
What is Tyga’s net worth?
As of 2016, Tyga is worth about $12 million, which is only slightly lower than his on-again, off-again girlfriend's net worth of about $14 million. Kylie Jenner, who is often thought of as the breadwinner in their relationship, earned about $18 million in 2016 before taxes, according to Forbes.
So how did Tyga earn his cash? Keep reading to find out!
Tyga earned about $9 million in album sales, mixtape and compilation sales, and singles both as a lead and featured artist. Even though his last record, 2015’s The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty, reportedly sold less than 3,000 copies in its first week, over time his album sales have been steadily rising. His breakout record, Hotel California, is the top seller in his catalog.
Even though the rapper only participated in one major North American arena tour as opening support on Chris Brown and Trey Songz’s 2015’s Between the Sheets tour, he still regularly performs at smaller club shows. Since 2008, he’s performed in about 580 concerts, according to BandsInTown.
In the past year alone, he’s earned $7 million from concerts at smaller venues.
The site is a very lucrative place for artists and stars, who earn money based on views. Tyga earns about $8 per view on both of his channels — Tyga and TygaVEVO — and his total amount earned based off of views in the last year adds up to about $7 million.
The rapper scored deals with brands like Porsche, SOL Headphones, Foot Locker, and Reebok. Those endorsements earned him about $6 million last year.
He also sells tee shirts, hats and other types of merchandise at his concerts and at his online shop, Last Kings — and he also has a partnership with the sneaker brand LA Gear for his shoe line, T-Raww — which brought in about $1.5 million in the last year.
Even though the total amount of yearly earnings is $30 million, Tyga only takes home $12 million after taxes. Since he falls in the 53 percent tax bracket — and 10 percent of his earnings go to yearly expenses — about $19 million is cut out of his earnings, and $1 million is added back in from investments.
