TI’s Net Worth: $55 Million
Born Clifford Joseph Harris Jr. in Atlanta Georgia in September 25, 1980, T.I. has an estimated net worth of $55 million as of 2017. He started raping at the age of 8, but during his teenage years was arrested numerous times due to unlawful dealing of drugs.
In the 1990s, T.I. was selling his mix tapes from a car trunk together with rapper Big Kuntry King of Atlanta. Record Executive Kawan Prather got hold of one of these mix tapes and signed T.I. to a recording deal.
His debut album, “I’m Serious” was a commercial flop but still got a slot at the top 100 of the US Billboard Top 200. The album ended up selling 268,000 in the US. Not one to be demoralized, T.I. transferred to Atlantic Records where he released his second album “Trap Muzik.” This album did much better both on the charts and in record sales.
It was not until his fourth album “King,” released through Grand Hustle Records and Atlantic Records in 2007, that T.I. rose to fame. On the week it was released, the album sold 522,000 copies. “King” gained the top slot on the US Billboard Top 200 and was number one on the Top R&B and Hip-Hop Charts and Top Rap Albums.
In 2008, T.I. released his top grossing album “Paper Trail.” Within the first three days of its released, it sold over 350,000 copies and 745,000 after its second week. This two time Platinum album eventually sold over 2 million copies.
T.I. ranks number 30 in the Top 100 richest rappers. While most of his wealth came from his singing career, as an entrepreneur he launched his very own liquor line after his stint as Remy Martin’s Creative Consultant. His nightclub, Club Crucial, is one of the most popular party places in Atlanta. He also owns a strip club (V-Live) in Atlanta and part ownership of TIDAL, a subscription streaming service.
In 2007, he was the face of Chevrolet’s Impala vehicles. He also simultaneously endorsed the social networking site StreetCred.com.
T.I.’s $55 million net worth is a combination of his earnings as a singer celebrity, an entrepreneur and a brand endorser.
