Benjy Grinberg Net Worth $20 million

Benjy was working as part of Arista Records when he decided to create his own record label; he wanted to run a label his way and to develop his own artists. Taking lessons from Arista, he wanted to focus on artist development, finding them early and unleashing their potential. After creating Rostrum Records in 2003, he soon heard about the rapper Wiz Khalifa who at the time was working on various mixtapes in Pittsburgh. Khalifa signed with the label and would release his first album in 2006 entitled “Show and Prove”, followed up with a second album three years later entitled “Deal or No Deal”. Khalifa started to develop within hip hop circles, while Benjy helped him through promoting free mixtapes. The artist then found popularity on social media. In 2010, Benjy signed Mac Miller after his work with Khalifa on the “KIDS” mixtape, who would go on to find popularity as well having sold out tours during the same year.

Grinberg’s net worth started to increase significantly thanks to the rise of the two artists. The Wiz Khalifa single entitled “Black and Yellow” would reach the top spot of the Billboard Hot 100; in 2011, Mac Miller released the mixtape “Best Day Ever” which became highly popular, and the single “Donald Trump” from the mixtape achieved RIAA Platinum certification. Grinberg then helped release the Wiz Khalifa album “Rolling Papers’ in collaboration with Atlantic Records, which soon found platinum certification as well. He also released the Mac Miller debut album “Blue Slide Park” which became the first independently distributed debut album to hit the top spot of the charts. Khalifa would then release a collaborative album with Snoop Dogg which led to the album “Mac & Devin Go to High School”, and the song “Young, Wild & Free” featuring Bruno Mars would be certified platinum. In 2012, Rostrum Records released the Wiz Khalifa album “ONIFC”, and Mac Miller’s second album entitled “Watching Movies with the Sound Off” would soon follow. Leon Thomas III was also signed to their label.

In 2014, Benjy’s deal with Mac Miller ended and he left Rostrum Records. Despite that, Benjy’s net worth would continue to grow with another successful Wiz Khalifa album entitled “Blacc Hollywood”. Rostrum would then focus on expanding their roster, signing The Bird and the Bee as well as rapper Mod Sun. Wiz Khalifa would find more success with the single “See You Again” which was used for the soundtrack of the film “Furious 7”, becoming his biggest hit to date, and is the most viewed video by a rapper ever. The song was also nominated for three Grammy Awards.

In 2016, Wiz Khalifa and Grinberg parted ways after a lawsuit claiming that they had an unfair deal. Khalifa sought $1 million in compensation.

For his personal life, nothing is known about any romantic relationships that Benjy might have. It is known that Benjy has two older siblings, and lived with his brother when he was starting out in the music industry.
