Tyler Gregory Okonma was born on 6 March 1991, in Ladera Heights, California, USA, to a Nigerian father who he has never met, and a mother of mixed Canadian and African-American descent. To the public he is known as Tyler, the Creator, and is a  record producer, rap artist, television personality, actor, as well as a screenwriter, who gained fame when he started leading a hip hop group called “Odd Future”.

A well-known rap artist, how rich is Tyler, the Creator? According to sources, his net worth as of late 2017 is estimated to be over $8 million, most of which he has accumulated from his rapping career, active since 2007.

Tyler, the Creator Net Worth $8 Million

Tyler, the Creator attended a dozen schools in the Sacramento and Los Angeles areas. Leaving school, he worked briefly for FedEx and Starbucks, but his interest in music from an early age influenced his real career choice. Odd Future was formed in 2007, and included such rappers as Domo Genesis, Mike G, Frank Ocean, and Hodgy Beats among many others. With the group, Tyler has released two mixtapes, namely “The Odd Future Tape” and “Radical”, and a debut studio album called “The OF Tape Vol. 2”, which peaked at #5 on the Billboard 200 music chart and produced such singles as “Rella” and “NY (Ned Flander)”. Up to date, the album succeeded at selling more than 71,000 copies in the US alone. The group performed in London, and in New York City in 2010, then continued with a tour around the US, which certainly boosted their popularity and net worth.

Several of the group members produced solo albums, and so aside from his involvement with Odd Future, Tyler, the Creator has also been working on solo projects. He released his debut mixtape – “Bastard” – in 2009, and received a moderate amount of media attention, which gave him the opportunity to appear on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon”.  In 2011, Tyler produced  “Goblin” his first album, and released the music video for “Yonkers“, the first single from the album. In 2013, Tyler came out with “Wolf”, his second studio work, which was released under both the “RED” and “Sony” labels, and which included guest appearances from such artists as Pharrell, Erykah Badu, Casey Veggies and Frank Ocean. It succeeded in selling 90,000 copies during its debut week, and secured the #3 spot on the Billboard 200 music chart, and was subsequently placed at #18 on the list of Best Albums of 2013 by “XXL” magazine.

In addition to being a rap artist, that same year Tyler debuted with a comedy sketch series called “Loiter Squad”, in which he appears alongside the members of “Odd Future”. So far, the show has aired three seasons and a total of 31 episodes, and is co-produced by Jeff Tremaine, Lance Bangs, Keith Crofford and Shanna Zablow among many others.

Tyler is something of a businessman too – in 2011 he launched Golf Wang, a clothing company,  and runs Golf Media too, his own streaming service which has published original scripted series from Tyler himself. The Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival is streamed there annually too, a music festival which he began hosting in 2012. All these activities have contributed to Tyler’s rising net worth, too.

In regard to his personal life, very little is known about Tyler, the Creator’s romantic relationships, although he has alluded to perhaps being gay. Tyler is more notable for his many feuds, which have included such well-known people as Chris Brown, Brandun DeShay, and Vince Staples to name a few. He has been accused of inappropriate lyrics, supposedly anti-religion, misogynistic and suggesting violence against women. However, these criticisms don’t seem to have effected his career.

Tyler, the Creator continues to base himself in Southern California.
