What is Lil Uzi Vert net worth? Good question. Born Symere Woods on July 31, 1994, in North Philadelphia, Lil Uzi Vert grew up listening to Mike Jones, Meek Mill, and Wiz Khalifa. Not only did they play a big part in his life, but they also helped form his rapping style.
In addition to rap, Lil Uzi loved bands like Paramore, The All-American Rejects and My Chemical Romance. You could say his taste was all over the place.
He started rapping in the 10th grade. After dropping out of school, he worked at a Bottom Dollar store for less than a week before quitting and being kicked out of his family home by his mother. Lil Uzi Ver’s net worth was probably really low at this time in his life. However, he was still able to mark his face with a tattoo. He got the word “faith” just under his hairline.
After being kicked out, Lil Uzi started taking rap seriously and in early 2014, he released an EP titled Purple Thoughtz Vol. 1. Like Eminem, some of the songs became hits. A few of the songs on the EP gained popularity online, especially the single, White Sh*t. The song went “viral” as the kids say, and Lil Uzi started getting attention from people inside the music industry.
Producer and Def Jam A&R Don Cannon liked what he heard and signed him to his The Academy imprint and helped produce his first mixtape titled The Real Uzi. By now, the Real Uzi’s net worth was growing.
After the mixtape was released in August 2014, Lil Uzi signed a record deal with Atlantic Records. He was featured on multiple tracks from other artists, including ASAP Ferg and Rich the Kid. He also got a spot on Fall Out Boy’s and Wiz Khalifa’s ‘Boys of Summer’ tour, which had to be a dream come true for him. After the release of his second mixtape in 2015, several publications started naming him as an artist to watch for 2016.
And they were right to warn people. In April 2016, he released his first commercial mixtape, Lil Uzi Vert vs. the World, and it peaked at number 37 on the Billboard 200. It spent a total of 55 weeks on the chart, and is now certified gold, along with other songs made by promising music artists, such as Post Malone and Travis Scott .
Then finally in the summer of 2017, Lil Uzi dropped his debut studio album, Luv Is Rage 2. No surprise, the album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and received mostly positive reviews from critics. In February 2018, it went certified platinum.
Lil Uzi’s career is just getting started, and honestly, we wouldn’t be surprised to see him taking over the rap game in the years to come. Even though he’s not as rich as other famous music artists such as Chance The Rapper, Bruno Mars, or Miley Cyrus, his net worth is at $17 million, but that will likely increase.
