How did Ab-Soul Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on February 23, 1987, in Los Angeles, California, Ab-Soul spent the first four years of his childhood in Germany, where his father worked in the military. Following his parents’ divorce, he and his mother moved back to the United States, where they stayed with his grandparents. Due to the fact that his family owned a record store, he encountered music at a young age. By the time he was twelve, he had written his first verse.
Ultimately, it wasn’t until he graduated from high school that he started to take rapping more seriously. In 2005, he signed a recording deal with a small label called StreetBeat Entertainment. In the end, he stayed for two years, before moving to Top Dawg Entertainment in 2007. From there, he and his label-mates formed a hip-hop supergroup called Black Hippy.
A few years later, he released his debut album, Longterm Mentality. Complete with over a dozen tracks, it featured guest appearances from several artists including Kendrick Lamar, Jhene Aiko, BJ the Chicago Kid, and Punch, among a few others. Highly acclaimed by critics, it eventually peaked at number 73 on the Top R&B Albums chart in the U.S.
Since then, he has come out with three additional studio albums including Control System, Do What Though Wilt, and These Days…, all of which have charted on the Billboard 200. Well received, they have only boosted his popularity further.
In addition to his solo releases, Ab-Soul has collaborated with many artists throughout his music career such as Schoolboy Q, Bas, Nikki Jean, Danny Brown and Sir Michael Rocks, to name a few.
Considering his popularity as a rapper, it’s likely that he’s earned a considerable amount of income from his albums and singles. On top of that, however, he also pulls in money from putting on shows and concerns. In fact, he had just embarked on his 2017 YMF Tour, which saw him perform at over 30 different cities across North America. As far as we can tell though, he does not have any performances planned for the next few months.
