Thugga’s’s unique style has put him at the head of the pack in a genre known for its wealth and luxury, which leaves lots of people wondering what his net worth is.

How Did Young Thug Make His Money & Wealth?
Jeffery Lamar Williams was born in Atlanta, Georgia on August 16, 1991. He grew up in Jonesboro South. Put another way, he lives up to the name of his first mixtapes: I Came From Nothing.
He released those tapes in 2011 through 2012, and was noticed by Gucci Mane. Gucci signed him to 1017 Brick Squad Records, and the next year Thugga released 1017 Thug. This got him noticed by national critics and even earned him an honorable mention on Pitchfork’s Albums of the Year.
In 2014, Thugga worked with Kanye West, who commended his fast turnover. He was featured on the cover of The Fader, and released his first single, “Stoner”. Over the next couple years, Thug continued to release tracks – sometimes accidentally. In the spring of 2015, Thug saw most of his unreleased material leaked online.
This pushed him to release even more mixtapes, culminating in the release of Jeffery. Jeffery was a critical success, and peaked at #8 on the Billboard 200. It was deemed one of the best albums of the year by multiple magazines, including Rolling Stone. It also helped solidify Thugga as one of the best rappers currently producing, and helped increase his net worth from an estimated $6 million to $8 million.
