What is Kodak Black’s net worth? Was Black on Forbes list? Good questions and we have some answers. Born Dieuson Octave on June 11, 1997, in Pompano Beach, Florida, Kodak Black’s parents were migrants from Haiti. Black was raised by his mother in Golden Acres, which is a public housing project in Pompano Beach.
Much like Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Bruno Mars, Kodak developed a love for rapping at an early age. He started making tracks in elementary school and would record music at a local trap house. He spent his free time reading dictionaries and thesauruses to further his vocabulary, which was exactly what Eminem did to expand his lyrics.
Kodak was expelled from school in the fifth grade for fighting and was arrested for auto theft while in middle school. He claimed in an interview that the two options as a kid were “sell drugs with a gun on his hip or rap.”
In 2009, at the age of 12, Kodak joined a group called Brutal Youngnz. He performed under the name J-Black. He then joined another local rap group called The Kolyons. After getting some good practice in, Kodak released his first mixtape, Project Baby, in 2013. He followed that up with another mixtape in 2014 titled Heart of the Projects. Kodak Black’s net worth was slowly growing.
In October 2015, Kodak’s life changed forever when Drake posted a video of himself dancing to one of his songs called Skrt. Later that month, Kodak signed a record deal with Atlantic Records. In August 2016, his ‘Skrt’ single had reached number 10 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop singles chart. A few months prior, XXL Magazine named him one of their 2016 Freshman Class.
On March 31, 2017, Kodak finally released his debut studio album, Painting Pictures. Like Beyonce’s solo album, it peaked at number three on Billboard 200. It was a huge win for Kodak and proved he could be just as successful as other mainstream rappers. Unfortunately, since 2016, he’s been in and out of jail. He has faced drug charges, weapons charges, sexual assault charges, grand theft of a firearm, and so much more.
So how much is Kodak Black’s net worth? According to the latest report, Kodak Black’s net worth hovers around $750,000. That number would probably be much higher if he could focus on the music and keep himself out of trouble. Maybe that will come with age, but as of right now, he has a lot of growing up to do if he wants to become as successful as his heroes.
Without a doubt, Black has not reached the level of wealth that Dr. Dre, Travis Scott, or even Chris Brown has achieved. However, if he bounces back into the entertainment circuit, his wealth will increase dramatically.
