Back to something I know, at least somewhat. When it comes to how rappers and other hip hop artists make there money there are a few main pillars. The importance of these depends on the stage of the career the artist is at. Lil Durk is at the early mid point of his career, where his money is made mostly with records and verse. I’ve taken a look through his life with fine toothed comb, and Lil Durk is an interesting character. His music bears most of the hallmarks of Trap, but there is an element of experimentation that runs through his records that sets him a part from the crowd, at least to my ear. A sis normally the case, there isn’t much for me to relate to personally, but we have to pay attention to the sound in addition to the content/context of the work. Lil Durk has been rapping from a very young age, and his break through came only a few short years ago. He is climbing the ladder, so to speak, but it is still impressive how much money he has been able to make in so short a time.
So let’s take a look at Lil Durk’s life, see how and where he makes his money.

How Did Lil Durk Make His Money & Wealth?
It’s always a lot of fun to look through the financial situations of rap artists. There is a kind of symbiotic thing going on with a lot of them, and the younger they are the more connected everyone is. Lil Durk is a bit more removed from the rest of the artists I have looked at, but the pillars of his wealth remain the same. The Tour, the Album, the single and the verse. It’s like a decreasing order of magnitude riff on the same concept.
Touring tends to be quite lucrative for the artist, Lil Durk has been on the road on and off for the majority of his career. His current tour will continue across the states for the next few months. He is said to give a good show, and is known for traveling with Jeezy, another hip hop artist.
The majority of the hip hop stars, established and up and coming, I have looked into over the last few weeks did not have albums released. instead it was all EPs, singles and mixtapes. I am happy to see a far more road range of releases from Lil Durk, two studio albums and a dozen or so mixtapes. the records have sold fairly well, and he gets a substantial cut of the sales, usually around 60% depending on how well his contract with Def Jam was negotiated. He has released six singles since 2012, starting with his break through hit L’s Anthem.
The final pillar is the most interesting from my perspective. The verse. Hip Hop artists appear in each other’s tracks all the time, but I never thought much about it. It turns out that rappers sell verses to each other, perform as a featured artist and get paid well for the time. Depending on the popularity of the artist in question you can see a couple of grand changing hands. it is possible that some of them were tit for tat, I appear on your track and you appear on mine, but I imagine the vast majority of Lil Durk’s appearances on other’s songs was for cash. Lil Durk is a featured artist on around 50 tracks out there.
Once you add in social media leveraging, and a few product endorsements, you get a clear picture of how they made their money. Lil Durk’s Net Worth is very impressive, doubly o considering his age. It will be interesting to watch it grow, and see where his career goes next.
