Young M.A Net Worth $2 Million
Born in Brooklyn, New York City, MA is of Puerto Rican descent. From a very early age she had a passion for music, and started rapping at the age of nine, and has since honed her skills in writing music as well.
MA moved from one place to another with her family when she was younger, but settled back to Brooklyn when she was 16 years old. She initially started at T.J. Maxx and Shake Shack, but at the same time also working on her music, self-funding a recording studio with the help of other local producers.
MA’s fame started in 2013 when she joined the world of YouTube, uploading her first song “Brooklyn Chiraq” or “Brooklyn (Chiraq Freestyle”). The song was initially a minor success, but eventually gained popularity in 2014, when an author named Boyce Watkins criticized the lyrics of the song on a post on Facebook. Instead of destroying her career, the post had the opposite effect, and made her even more famous, supporting the old adage that ‘any publicity is good publicity’. Her early years in music certainly helped her career, and also established her net worth.
In 2015, MA released a new song called “Body Bag” along with her new mixtape entitled “Sleep Walkin.” The single video became a big hit on YouTube, and was even featured in the magazine Rolling Stone.
After a couple of years creating music and performing, it was in 2016 that MA’s career made it to the mainstream, when she released the song “Ooouuu.” The song was her official debut single, and immediately climbed the US Billboard Hot 100 chart. Soon other artists remixed her song, putting their personal twists on it, including French Montana, Uncle Murda, Remy Ma and ASAP Ferg. The popularity of her song helped catapult her career, into mainstream music, and also tremendously increased her net worth.
Aside from her music, MA also made headlines when it was reported that she was offered a role in the hit series “Empire”, playing the role of Freda Gatz. The role was originally named Betty Bars, and was specifically written for her, but despite the possible boost to her career, she decided to focus on her music instead of potentially gaining fame as a fictional character.
Today, MA is still active in creating music, and remains as an independent artist streaming her music on Spotify and YouTube. She also has another channel called “Kat Kasanova”, on which she discusses various topics, including about her life as a lesbian.
In terms of her personal life, MA is single.
