Travis Scott, the famous rapper and singer, has an estimated net worth of $35 million as of 2019, according to Celebrity Net Worth. He grew up in Houston, Texas, where he developed an interest in music at an early age. After dropping out of college, Scott began releasing mixtapes which caught the attention of Kanye West, who subsequently signed him to his label GOOD Music in 2012. His debut album Rodeo was released in 2015 and received mixed reviews from critics but was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 2016 Grammy Awards.
Travis was born on April 30, 1992, in Houston, Texas to parents Mike and Donna. He has an older brother named David. The family initially lived at a house near Manvel until Travis turned 7 years old, after which they moved to Missouri City and then Sugar Land. Here he grew up with his friend Marcus Anderson who has been featured on several of his songs like Skyfall, Wake Up etc. As a teenager he would be inspired by Erykah Badu and rappers like Lil Wayne and Gucci Mane. By age 15 he was rapping over other artists’ instrumentals for fun but still had plans of becoming a football player or enrolling at Prairie View A&M University to study business management.

Awards & Achievements
Travis Scott may be known more for his music than his fortune, but how rich is he really? Before achieving platinum status with his debut studio album, Rodeo (2015), Travis was earning money from other endeavors. Achieving several gold and platinum plaques with his mixtapes: Owl Pharaoh (2013) and Days Before Rodeo (2014), Travis had gained a lot of recognition within hip-hop circles. His first hit single Antidote reached No. 4 on Billboard Hot 100 and became one of 2016’s biggest songs. Just as he was hitting mainstream success, however, he got embroiled in legal issues involving an assault case from 2013 and a previous business deal gone sour.
A Grammy Award-winning hip hop artist, Travis is one of very few successful mumble rappers who has transitioned from mixtapes to radio hits and sold out tours. With a net worth of $15 million by 2019, Travis is now worth much more than he was a few years ago. That being said, with his most recent album Birds in The Trap Sing McKnight debuting at number 1 on Billboard 200 as well as multiple singles making it into major markets like New York and Los Angeles, how rich will he be by 2021? Let’s find out!
House & Car Collection
Even before his rise to fame, it was clear that Travis’s music would put him on a path to riches. It was harder to guess how much of a boost he’d get from Kylie Jenner. With her love and support, he took off his clothes as part of his 2016 Astroworld tour and started investing in real estate. Since then, he’s bought several properties around Houston and Los Angeles—including $2 million worth of mansions in Calabasas, CA (where he lives with Kylie). He owns a lot more than just houses: cars, jewelry, clothing lines…the list goes on.
His Business Ventures
It would be safe to assume that with all of his touring and album money, Travis was able to expand his variety of business ventures. By now he’s probably started a successful production company for other up-and-coming artists as well as a new clothing line. His main source of income is still his solo career, but there’s no doubt that Travi$ is growing into more than just another hip hop artist. He has well over 10 million Instagram followers and there are talks of sequels to Rodeo, perhaps even an appearance in James Cameron’s upcoming Avatar movie trilogy? It is safe to say that he will be on top as one of hip hops most wealthiest stars by 2020.
