How did Lil Mama Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on October 4, 1989, in Harlem, New York, Lil Mama was brought up in Brooklyn with her seven siblings. As a young girl, she often expressed herself through dance and poetry. With her father’s encouragement, she later moved to Atlanta to work with music producer, James Chambers. Together, the two eventually put together her first single, Lip Gloss, which caught the attention of New York’s flagship radio station almost immediately.
In 2008, she released her debut album, VYP (Voice of the Young People). Featuring guest vocals from Chris Brown, DJ Khaled, and T-Pain, it had proved to be an overall success, having reached as high as number 25 on the US Billboard Top 200. Met with positive reviews, the album went on to spawn four singles: What It Is (Strike a Pose), G-Slide (Tour Bus), Lip Gloss, and Shawty Get Loose.
Despite its success, however, Lil Mama has yet to release a second album. With that said, she did put together a mixtape titled, Take Me Back in 2015, which was made available for streaming online. To this day, Shawty Get Loose and Lip Gloss, both from her debut album, remain to be her most popular singles.
Naturally, the rapper would have earned some royalties from the above releases. In addition to that, it’s likely that she has also pulled in a decent amount of public events such as concerts and tours (though she doesn’t have any planned at this time).
In addition to her music career, Lil Mama has also appeared in a few films. For instance, she was cast as Lisa Lopes aka “Left-Eye” in the biographical movie, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story in 2013. Based on the girl group TLC, the cast also included Drew Sidora and Keke Palmer who played the parts of Tionne Watkins and Rozonda Thomas respectively.
As far as television goes, she has also served as one of the judges on MTV’s competitive reality series, America’s Best Dance Crew, from season one to seven.
In terms of upcoming projects, she will be appearing in a film called Born in the Game later this year.
