How did Lil Key Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on April 5, 2000, in Baltimore, Maryland, Lil Key was born with an injury to his brachial plexus that limited the mobility of his right arm. Despite this, his childhood was relatively idyllic. Inspired by various hip-hop artists, he began uploading his own songs to YouTube at the age of twelve. Later in his early teens, he and his friend Scooter Smiff broke out on the Baltimore music scene.
By the time he was in his mid-teens, his music had captured the attention of a local Baltimore business, which later asked him to be their spokesperson. From there, he eventually dropped his debut mixtape, My Life, Vol. 1 in 2013. Among its trackless were titles such as Young and Bold, and Backpack, both of which gained traction online.
As he continued to upload his work on multiple platforms, his presence in the hip-hop scene began to grow. As it happened, he eventually found himself competing on Queen Latifah’s music reality series, The Rap Game in 2016. Though he didn’t end up winning, his time on the show had garnered him a fair bit of attention.
A year later, he returned with new music for his fans- the extended play, Unlocked. An 8-track project, it boasted the songs Shorty Right Here, Crazy (Feat. J.I. & D Low), I Got This Feeling, and Don’t Come Around Me (feat. Nova), among a few others.
Since then, Lil Key has also dropped another single titled, Shorty Right There. On YouTube, the official music video has generated over 44,000 views to date.
Speaking of YouTube, it’s likely that he also pulls in some earnings from the site. Assuming that he’s been monetizing his videos, the chances of this is high. Since the launch of his channel in 2012, he has gained nearly 20,000 subscribers with more than 618,000 video views. Today, his most popular uploads include Lil Key Backpack Flow, Young & Bold, Key to the City, and Mad When I Flex.
