Born on August 17, 1984 in Atlanta, Georgia, Peewee Longway (Birth Name: Quincy Lamont Williams) is one of the last artists to sign to 1017 Records before the imprisonment of its founder, Gucci Mane. The nephew of Cold Blooded Da Don, a member of the Brick Squad who originally introduced him to Mane, he first garnered attention in 2013 with the release of the first MPA compilation mixtape.
After signing onto the label, he took Young Thug under his wing briefly before he switching to become Gucci’s protege. In 2014, he became the leader of The MPA Bandcamp, an Atlanta-based group of rappers who come together to perform music; currently the collective has over a dozen different members.
Over the years, they’ve recorded a number of tracks together including Documentary Feat Offset, Switcharoo Feat Migos, Sneaking N Geekin, Can’t Even Lie, and Trap Trap, all of which are available for streaming on their official Soundcloud page.
As a solo artist, the rapper released his first mixtape, Money, Pounds, Ammunition on March 22, 2013 via digital download. A collaboration with Gucci Mane, it marked his first step into the music realm. Continuing with his emerging career, he later went on to release two additional mixtapes by the end of the year, Running Around the Lobby in August and Lobby Runners in December. That summer, Longway also dropped the single, Trenches which featured Young Dolphins and MPA Shitro.
On June 16, 2014, Peewee Longway came out with his next mixtape, World War 3D: The White Album, through 1017 Records and 101 Distribution. Within a month, he had followed up with Felix Brothers, which featured Young Dolphins and Gucci Mane. As far as singles go that he, he released two- Serving’ Lean (Feat. ASAP Rocky) and Know Bout Me (Feat. Young Thug and Offset).
On February 23, 2015, his next mixtape made its way online, Blue M&M Vol. II: King Size. A follow up to his 2014 tape of the same name, it was generally well received upon fans; reportedly, it had yielded the artist upwards of $700,000.
From there, Longway released Money, Pounds, Ammunition Vol. 2 in August of 2015; the mixtape eventually spawned the single, Do It For the Hood. According to various sources, volume two of the Money, Pounds, Ammunition series had yielded him a little under $900,000.
The following June, the rapper released the next instalment, Money, Pounds, Ammunition Vol. 3 via digital download. Not long afterwards, it was followed by Longway Sinatra in November, which was a collaboration with Cassius Jay.
On January 29, 2016, Peewee Longway released his first full length studio album entitled, Mr. Blue Benjamin via the MPA imprint. Produced by Cassius Jay, Southside, Bees, Zaytoven, and a few others, it included twenty new hip hop tracks, a few of which featured guest appearances from Young Dolph, Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa. While it didn’t end up hitting the US record charts, it was generally well received nonetheless.
By the end of the year, it had produced the single, Jackie Tan which featured Juicy J and Wiz Khalifa. The project is estimated to have brought up Longway’s net worth by a few tens of thousands of dollars- although the exact amount has not been disclosed.
In terms of collaborations, Peewee Longway has worked with several other artists throughout his career including OJ da Juiceman, Rich Homie Quen, Migos, Rich the Kid, Ca$h Out, Skippa Da Flippa, MPA Wicced, 2 Chains, and Verse Simmonds. Some of the titles from said collars include Time to Get Paid, Jack Tripper, Frankie Lymon, Him or Me, Too Many Racks, and Dead Fo Real.
Other than his tapes and records, concerts are another major source of income for the star. For instance this past March, he performed at the Will Power Promotions present Peewee Longway event. Seeing as how his popularity has increased steadily over the past few years, his booking fee is most likely nothing to scoff at- probably in the thousands.
Although he isn’t on tour right now, it wouldn’t be surprising if Longway was to organize one in the near future considering how he’s already built a solid fanbase with his musical releases.
Of course, his earnings are also supplemented by what he earns through his official store in which fans are able to purchase various merchandise items such as t-shirts, hats and hoodies.
Another source of income for Longway, one that is often forgotten about is his official Youtube account. While it’s still growing at ~5000 subscribers, it has accumulated close to 400,000 lifetime views across all of his videos since he first joined on October 9, 2013. Assuming that he is part of the Youtube partner program and that earns $2 per 1000 views, that works out to be $800 in ad revenue. With time, we have no doubt that his channel will continue to grow- and with that naturally, his earnings from it will also increase.
From endorsements and sponsorships alone, it is approximated that Longway has earned close to $130,000 to date.
Let’s take a look at his earnings per year- in 2012, his gross income was estimated to be $317,000. Following the release of his initial mixtapes over the next period, this amount jumped to $390,000; by 2014 it had grew to $500,000. In 2012, Longway reportedly took home a pay check of $588,000.
How has this reflected in his overall net worth over the past years?
In 2012, the rapper’s fortune was estimated to be around the $2.8 million- a figure that most average individuals can only dream of having to their name. In 2013, this had increased to $4 million, before going up a notch again in 2014 to $4.3 million. As of 2017, Peewee Longway has an estimated worth of $5 million.
If he were to continue on with his music career, we have no doubt that he’ll achieve greater success. In fact, he may just one day break into television, as many other musicians have done before him. Perhaps we’ll be seeing Longstar as an actor in the near future, only time can tell. One thing’s for sure, the rapper’s net worth is not about to decline sharply anytime soon.
