How did Bankroll Fresh Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on August 2, 1987 in Atlanta, Georgia, Bankroll Fresh (Real Name: Trentavious Zamon White Sr.) grew up in the western part of the city, where he learnt how to hustle at a young age. By the time he was in his teens, he had a level of street credibility. While he often got himself into trouble, music was always something that he could fall back upon.
After the age of nineteen, Bankroll Fresh decided to dedicate more time towards his rapping career. Throughout the 2000’s, he recorded a number of mixtapes- although many didn’t end up weren’t released to the public. In 2008, the aspiring artist received a small break after being featured in fellow rapper Gucci Mane’s mixtape entitled, Sports Center. During this period, he performed under the stage name of Yung Fresh.
On October 12, 2012, the Atlanta artist came out with his debut mixtape, Street Motivation. Mainly produced by Zaytoven, it boasted fourteen tracks including Rain on Her, Human Cooler, Boss Up, Get it Up, Grab It, and Keep it G; a few guest appearances were also made by Zaytoven, and Gucci Mane. To date, it has been streamed over 40,000 times online.
In 2013, Bankroll Fresh released a single dubbed, Dead Presidents via digital download. To date, it has been streamed over 115,000 times on his official Soundcloud page.
Eventually becoming acquainted with music producer Metro Boomin, he worked with him on his mixtape, 19 & Boomin in 2013. From there, Bankroll Fresh made his big debut in 2014 with the single, Hot Boy– which was met with relative success. Within a few months, he had followed up with the mixtape entitled, Life of a Hot Boy.
Before the end of the year, Bankroll Fresh released his next mixtape, Money to Die 4 on August 6, 2014. Presented by DJ Lil Keen and DJ Black Bill Gates, the 10-track project included the tracks Real Nigga, On Sight, Hot Boy, Street Blessing, Show Em How To Do It, and Come With it. Well received, especially by his fans, it has since been streamed over 29,000 times and downloaded more than 14,000 times on Datpiff, a popular mixtape sharing platform.
On April 24, 2015, the Atlanta artist came out with his fourth mixtape, Life of a Hot Boy 2: Real Trapper. Another title to add to his growing catalogue at the time, it included a few features of artists Travis Porter, Free Gucci, Boochie, Street Money Red, and Spodee. More popular than his earlier work, it has been downloaded over 20,000 times and played close to 70,000 times as of May 2017 on Datpiff.
That mixtape eventually spawned the single, Walked In which featured Travis Porter and Money Boochie. While it didn’t make it to the US record charts, it helped to bolster his fame nonetheless.
In the summer of 2015, Bankroll Fresh teamed up with Zaytoven, one of his longtime collaborators for his next release, Rock Solid. The project consisted of eleven songs including Cole World, Hunger, Haters, Ten, Goin Hard, and Piano Keys, the last of which featured rapper Tracy T.
After another mixtape that year, he released his extended play, Street Stimulus EP. Featuring Skooly, Boochie and 2 Chains, it included the beats Walked In, Fake Niggas, On Me, Take Over Your Trap, and Fuck is You Saying.
In 2016, Bankroll Fresh collaborated with Spodee and T.I. on a brand new single, I Just Wanna. That same year, he was also featured in Jeezy’s hit track, All There which went on to peak at number 50 on the Top R&B and Hip Hop Songs chart- making it the artist’s first work to reach the music charts.
So how much did all of these endeavours yield him in the end? While he may not have earned a killing from his mixtapes, seeing as how they tend to be more promotional than profitable, Bankroll Fresh would have still brought home a relatively reasonable amount from its online streams, etc.
As you’re probably already aware, most if not all artists are capable of putting ads on their tracks through music streaming sites such as Soundcloud, which earns then a fair bit of revenue. Considering how his songs have been played thousands and thousands of times on the web, it’s not unreasonable to say that he did in fact, bring home some income from the tracks.
Speaking of online revenue, Bankroll Fresh’s Youtube channel also served as a source of supplemental income. As of spring 2017, his official account has accumulated close to 40,000 subscribers and has amassed over 13,000,000 views across all of his videos. His most popular video on his channel, the MV for his hit single, Hot Boy has since been viewed over 8,600,000 times.
Given that a Youtube user is able to earn upwards of $5 per 1000 views in terms of ad revenue, this works out to be $65,000- if we were to do the math with his lifetime views. From his Hot Boy music video alone, he would have yielded upwards of $43,000. Of course, all of these numbers are before Google’s cut of the revenue.
With his considerable popularity, it’s not surprising to know that Bankroll Fresh also performed a number of live shows- these stints would have paid him handsomely. Looking at his past history, the rapper had hit the stage over half a dozen times from 2014 until 2016. As far as his booking fee goes, it was probably in his tens of thousands per show.
Although he never embarked on a serious acting career, the Atlanta-native did take part in the 2016 independent short film, Take Over Your Trap.
Looking back, Bankroll Fresh had enjoyed a successful career prior to his untimely passing in 2016. For a twenty something year old to have amassed a fortune of over a hundred thousand dollars, is definitely a feat in itself. According to various online sources, he had a net worth of $150,000 in 2016, prior to his death.
Following his death, a studio album entitled, In Bank We Trust was released posthumously on April 24, 2017. Featuring the rapper’s likeness engraved on a gold coin as the cover art, Bankroll Fresh’s mother played a major role in the preparation and decision-making of the project.
