The American rapper and songwriter was born on October 3, 1988, as Rakim Mayers. He’s best known by his stage name ASAP Rocky and he has an estimated net worth of $40 million in 2018, according to Forbes. When he released his first album LongLiveA$AP in 2013, it went straight to the top of the Billboard 200 and sold 143,000 copies in its first week of release. This landed him his first appearance on the Hot 100 with the single Fuckin’ Problems, which peaked at number 14 on the chart. He has also recorded songs with Drake and Kendrick Lamar.
Albums (and Sales)
At 27 years old, ASAP Rocky has already been in several famous albums, including 2013’s Long. Live. ASAP (1 million albums sold) and 2015’s At. Long. Last. A$AP (855,000 albums sold). These two records have helped him land a number-one spot on Rolling Stone’s Top 50 Best Albums of 2013: Critics Picks List. It’s not clear how much each album sold for, but since they’re platinum records, we can assume that they went for more than $1 million each–or more if his label paid him separately.

His Career Earnings
If you’re an ASAP Rocky fan, you may be curious how much money he has made throughout his career as a rapper. Like most celebrities, it’s not exactly easy to find out ASAP’s exact net worth — although TMZ reports that ASAP raked in $3 million in 2015 alone. As of January 2019, the rapper was estimated to have a net worth of around $15 million USD (approximately $19 million CAD). Given that he just released his new album Testing (on May 25), we wouldn’t be surprised if that number increased substantially in 2019. In 2016, he signed a three-year contract with PUMA for $5 million USD.
According to Forbes, ASAP Rocky has already sold out his upcoming tour, selling $3.5 million in tickets within minutes of their release. His homecoming concert, A$AP Forever at Harlem’s Apollo Theater brought in more than $200,000 in ticket sales. That event alone grossed him more than $10 million before he’d even stepped foot on stage. The venue was so packed that some fans were turned away and forced to watch his performance on a big screen outside of The Apollo.
Taxes and Expenses
The biggest expense for most people is income taxes. The rapper has a gross income of $8.5 million, but that’s not what he gets to take home. His expenses are about $4 million for taxes, agent fees and manager fees. Subtract that from his income and he is left with $4 million net worth in 2021. That will increase as his income grows unless he spends more than he earns, which tends to happen when you’re famous…
Personal Life (House and Cars)
ASAP Rocky was born on October 3, 1988 in Harlem, New York City and he’s currently living in Los Angeles. The rapper also owns a house in New York City with his girlfriend Chanel Iman, who’s reportedly worth $3 million herself. ASAP Rocky has four siblings and has never been married; however, he does have a son named Aapri from a previous relationship. As for cars, in 2014, ASAP Rocky bought himself a Maybach Exelero that’s worth an estimated $8 million. The car is truly extravagant with gold-plated details and 24-karat gold seats that are made of rhinoceros hide!
