How did G4shi Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on October 4, 1989 in Libya, G4shi (Real Name: Cabinet Gashi) spent his childhood in several European and African countries before settling in New York City with his family in the late 90’s. Of Albanian descent, he struggled with English as a second language as a young teen. Wanting to ease his adjustment into society, he eventually turned to music- more specifically to rap. Immediately hooked, his passion for the genre has only grown further with time.
Later mastering the language, he completed high school and earned himself a full football scholarship to a American International College in Springfield, Massachusetts. Despite the opportunity however, he soon felt that something was missing a few months into his studies. After some pondering, G4shi decided sports was not his thing; instead, he found a new desire to pursue music. Soon after his realization, he dropped out of college to pursue it full time.
Since he was introduced to hip hop at the age of twelve, G4shi had been incredibly fond of the genre. Though becoming a rapper had alway been in his mind, his interests in football had come first during his teens. It wasn’t until he was in his twenties that his interest in rap came back to the forefront of his mind. According to a recent interview, some of his biggest influencers include Eminem, Jay-Z, and Kanye West.
Eventually adopting his current stage name, he participated in several music competitions including the First Look events, from which he brought home the winner’s title. Having continued to hone his craft, G4shi released his debut mixtape titled, Last of a Rare Breeds in 2011. Hosted by Don Cannon, the project offered listeners a chance to witness his lyrical and musical ability.
Made available as a digital download, the tape contained fourteen tracks including Coulda Shoulda Woulda, Can’t Go Home, In My Lifetime, Just Wanna Know, and Walk the Line, among others. To date, the project has been streamed over 8,000 times on Datpiff.
Following a big break in 2012 with the release of his single, Rocket, the rapper delivered his next mixtape, I’ll Be Right With You in 2013. Another tape soon followed in 2014 dubbed, 4 Play. Boasting fifteen tracks, the offering featured production from Matthew P, Smokie Morrison, and Sebastian Sator, and more. As of 2017, the mixtape has been streamed close to 40K times online.
Finally on July 15, 2016, G4shi released his debut titled, STAIRS. Distributed through The Order Label, it came packed with with seven titles including: Switch Up, Avni/Goodlife, Soho House, Day Ones, Jean Claude Van Damme, Dubai, and Personal. Accompanied by a parental advisory sticker, the EP was later uploaded onto his official Soundcloud account, where it has since racked up close to 2,000 listens.
Aside from what he’s managed to earn from his records, public appearances such as concert shows are another big source of income for the rapper. Two years after his debut, he held his first performance at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn, New York in September 2013. Since then, he has put on several other shows across the country. For instance, he hit the stage four times last time from New York to Oakland.
So far this year, G4shi has entertained crowds in Las Vegas, Hollywood, and Baltimore (among others), as part of his The Disrespectful Tour. His first world tour, it kicked off on August 13, 2017 and will be continuing until October 6, 2017 at the Fortune Sound Club in Vancouver, Canada. For more information on the upcoming dates, please visit his official website.
Another often forgotten about source of income for the artist is his Youtube Channel. Since its launch in 2010, his account has amassed over 25K subscribers with more than 3 million lifetime views. As you probably already know, Google pays its users for displaying advertisements on their videos, as part of their partnership program.
On average, users make upwards of $2 per 1,000 monetized views. Seeing as how he has a little over 3 million video views, G4shi would have easily made a couple thousand dollars from his Youtube channel so far. As of August 2017, his top upload, the official music video for Disrespectful has been streamed over 1.4 million times on the site.
In addition to his work as an artist, G4shi was made the face of the Problem Child NYC clothing line in 2012. Not only that, but he also did some modelling for the collection at one point in New York.
Currently it is estimated that the 27-year-old has a net worth of $300,000. Let’s go back to our original question now that we know more about how his career as panned out- where did he earn the majority of this amount from? Considering everything that’s been discussed above, our best guess is that he earned it from his record sales, and concert performances over the past few years.
