How did Amiri King Make His Money & Wealth?
Born on July 10, 1979, in Louisville, Kentucky, Amiri King had a rather difficult childhood. Due to issues in the house, he ran away and was homeless for a brief period at the age of eleven. By the time he was sixteen, he had landed himself in prison for first-degree robbery. Released two years later, his freedom was ultimately short-lived as he soon collided with the law once again, which sent him back to jail in 1997.
Over a decade later, he started to make a name for himself on social media. In 2008, he created his Twitter account, to which he posted his first tweet, “I’m typing in what I am doing…”. While he managed to earn himself a small fan base on the site, it wasn’t until the early 2010’s that he rose to fame for his comedy content.
Growing his online presence, he launched his self-titled YouTube channel in 2012. Initially known for his pranks, his earliest uploads include “Punch You In The Face” Prank Call, “Shut The F@#$ Up!” Prank Call, “Drive Thru Prank”, most of which have since been viewed over a hundred thousand times.
Continuing to upload videos on a regular basis, he later shifted his focus to vlogs. In fact, he eventually started a mini-series called “My Vlog Is Better Than Yours”, which proved to be popular among his viewers. To this day, it remains to be one of the most popular videos on his channel. Speaking of which, some of his most-viewed uploads include Chevy Silverado Parody 2 (17 million views), Chevy Colorado Parody (7.2 million views) and Chevy Camaro Parody “Camarow” (3.6 million views).
As of 2018, Amiri King has earned over 300,000 subscribers with more than 70 million views across his channel. With the audience that he has, it’s likely that he’s managed to pull in some amount of earnings from his videos, given that he’s been monetizing them with ads. Unfortunately, however, it’s hard to say how much exactly he’s earned from the platform at this time.
In terms of other ventures, he had made an appearance in the web series Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse with Rick and Ed in 2014.
