Kendrick Lamar Net Worth $10 Million

‘Top Dawg Entertainment’ signed Kendrick Lamar immediately. In fact, that happened in the early 2000s. Kendrick went on to release more and more records that made him a true rap star. He also appeared in Jay Rock’s video “All My Life (in the Ghetto)”. Not only that, but Kendrick also was featured on a track with Lil’ Wayne. Immediately after being featured with one of the most famous rappers of out time – Lil’ Wayne, Kendrick changed his stage name to just “Kendrick Lamar” as previously he has been calling himself K. Dot. Shortly after changing his pseudonym, Lamar initiated forming a super group together with his friends, also well-known rappers Jay Rock, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul called “Black Hippy”. They are one of the so-called West Coast rap groups. They toured for a while and Lamar toured as a solo artist as well. Touring really added to his wealth of $10 million dollars as well as releasing another mixtape did. He also released one of his earlier mixtapes. That was due to his recent stage name change.

His intensive touring was followed by the release of an independent album of his. Later, Kendrick was signed to the Interscope Records as well as the Aftermath Entertainment. His first major album that was released by these companies came out in late 2012. It sold out almost in no time, going up to over 1 million copies in the US. Kendrick Lamar, or as he was previously known, K. Dot was also featured along with such stars as Robin Thicke, Drake, Birdman, J. Cole, 2 Chainz and many others. Lamar’s releases, such as Training Day, “HiiiPoWeR”, “good kid, m.A.A.d city”, “Overly Dedicated”, “Section.80”, “Ronald Reagan Era (His Evils)”, “B Boyz.” gained enormous success not only in The United States, but also worldwide. B Boyz were later sampled and made in to a separate track by a well-known rap band Wax Tailor. They called the track “B Boyz On Wax”, including both of the artists’ names. This undoubtedly added to Lamar’s net worth. His album covers were designed by none other than the famous RedefineCreativity. This only shows what kind of rap star Lamar Kendrick really is. Other famous singers, such as Drake and Janet Jackson even let Lamar sample their songs to create wonderful collaborations. Kendrick Lamar net worth goes up to $10 million dollars, as he is undoubtedly famous rapper.
