Jeezy (real name – Jay Jenkins) is an American rapper from Atlanta, Georgia who has released 5 studio albums and numerous singles since his career started in 2003. Jeezy net worth was estimated to be approximately $8 million in 2016, although it should be mentioned that some sources put it as high as $15 million and others as low as $4 million. However, with such a huge discrepancy in the numbers, we decided to try and figure out Jeezy net worth by making our own estimates based on his upcoming projects and current income from live shows, endorsements and merchandise sales.
The rapper and singer was born as Jay Wayne Jenkins on September 28, 1977, in Atlanta, Georgia. His parents are both entrepreneurs and they got him interested into music early on. Wayne attended Tri-Cities High School but his academic career didn’t last long because he soon started rapping. He joined a hip hop group called The Go Getters where he served as a hype man and backup dancer to his fellow group members QD3 (Quick D) and JT Playah. Their track Nappy Heads became popular in Atlanta underground scene but it wasn’t until 2000 when it finally gained some mainstream attention by being featured on DJ Drama & Lil’ J’s Gangsta Grillz: The Album Vol.

Estimated Earnings from Albums/Songs Sales
$2.24 million (based on 5 albums, after fees and taxes) ($356,000 per album) ($42,500 per song)
Estimated Earnings from Merchandise Sales
Jeezy has increased his number of merchandise products over time. Sales from T-shirts, sweatshirts, wristbands and hoodies have continued to rise throughout his career, with sales doubling in 2016 compared to 2012. Revenues for each product vary but are generally within $10-$20 range. Total earnings per year: ~$1 million
Estimated Earnings from Endorsements
In 2015, Jeezy signed a new endorsement deal with Pepsi. He also counts Coca-Cola and Apple among his sponsors. The Rapper is estimated to make $1 million from his endorsement deals each year. Other companies he has worked with include Beats by Dre and Chevrolet. In a recent interview, Jeezy said he has never been happier as an artist and is currently putting all of his energy into growing out his own brand including clothing lines, real estate development, liquor brands and record labels. If he continues to add revenue streams at the same rate as he did in 2016, Jeezy’s endorsement income could increase fivefold by 2021!
Estimated Earnings from Other Sources
Jeezy might be making big bucks from touring, but he also gets his fair share of money from a variety of sources. Jeezy’s endorsement deals with companies like Mike Epps Energy Drink (2011), Diesel (2012), Adidas (2013), and Bugatti Veyron (2014) are probably worth a fortune, though figures aren’t available for them. With so many popular brands backing him up and so much money flowing through his fingers at any given moment, it’s hard to know exactly how rich Jeezy really is. That said, we can do some pretty good math to find out how much money Jeezy has right now—and you might be surprised by how much that is!
Total Estimate of Annual Earning Income
$13 million a year.
