At a very young age, Teairra Mari was encouraged by her grandmother – who used to sing back up for the famous Aretha Franklin – to pursue her dreams to be a singer. Mari attended Longfellow Elementary School located in Holland, Michigan, before moving to Detroit Schools. At the age of 16, she caught the attention of Helluvah and Big Mike from K.I.S.S. productions, which later arranged for her to collaborate with noted artists such as Bee, Lola Damone, J-Kwon and Ray J. The production company released her first album entitled ‘The EP Get Away,’ which was received well by the public, becoming a local sensation, and starting-off her net worth.

Big Mike introduced her to Daryl Simmons, an industry veteran living in Atlanta, Georgia, who shared her demo disc with Island Def Jam Music Group’s chairman Antonio L.A. Reid, who immediately offered her a lucrative contract. In the first collaboration, Mari worked with Jay-Z to release her first lead single ‘Make Her Feel Good.’ Her debut album was a huge success as it was reached ninth position on the R&B charts and top 35 on the Billboard Hot 100. Her second single, ‘No Daddy,’ spent about 16 days on the Total Request Live. Her net worth was rising!

Teairra Mari’s first album, ‘Rock-A-Fella Presents: Teairra Mari,’ made its debut on 2 August 2005, and was produced by The Trackboyz, Blackout Movement, Cool & Dre, Darkchild and Bryan-Michael Cox. However, by the time she released ‘Play Me,’ a single from the album ‘Second Round,’ she was dropped by her record label, which stated that her first album did not reach the expected sales, since as of November 2009, it had only sold 248,000 copies. Mari did not give up though, and signed a lucrative deal with Fo’Reel Ent, with whom she worked on the album ‘At That Point,’ which featured stars such as Rick Ross, Kanye West, Gucci Mane, Soulja Boy, Pleasure P, Flo Rida, and Nicki Minaj. Some of the hit songs from the album include ‘Hunt 4 U,’ Cause A Scene,’ and ‘Sponsor.’ Again, her net worth rose.

Teairra Mari has since released several popular mixtapes such as ‘Don’t Make Me Cause A Scene’, ’ Point Of No Return’, ‘Sincerely Yours,’ and ‘The Night Before X-Mass,’ which were released in 2009, 2010 and 2010 Christmas Eve respectively. One of her latest singles released by Yung Berg, her co-star in ‘Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood,’ ‘Deserve,’ has been well received by the public, selling numerous copies in the US and overseas.

In her acting career, Mari appeared in ‘The Magnificent Cooly-T,’ in 2009, followed by ‘Lottery Ticket’ in 2010. In 2013, a TV network known as UP premiered her alongside stars such as Clifton Powell, Denyce Lawton and Lynn Whitfield, in the film ‘The Dempsey Sisters.’ In 2011 she was featured in the second season of ‘Love & Hip Hop,’ but was later given a main role in the show. This has seen her increase her net worth significantly, making her a wealthy lady.

In her personal life, Teairra Mari is known to have dated a number of stars such as Shad Moss (Bow Wow) and Lil Wayne. However, the biggest media attention was her relationship with Ray J, whom she broke up with in 2014. Since then, she has not declared who she dates. In 2011, she was arrested following an accident in Beverly Hills, California for DUI and assaulting an officer. She was fined $50,000.
