What Is Lil Baby’s Net Worth?
In terms of wealth, Lil Baby, an American rapper, owns $8 million. In 2018, he released his first studio album, “Harder Than Ever,” which quickly rose to the top three on the “Billboard” 200 charts and was certified platinum. “My Turn,” his follow-up in 2020, was even more successful, topping the “Billboard” 200 and the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts and going 3x Platinum. Lil Baby has also worked with Gunna, Moneybagg Yo, Ralo, Lil Uzi Vert, Kodak Black, Gucci Mane, Offset, Young Thug, Lil Yachty, and Lil Durk, among many others, and released multiple mixtapes.
In 2020, he also directed the music videos for Rylo Rodriguez’s “Hear This” and “Walk,” in addition to his own “On Me” (which featured Lil Baby and 42 Dugg). Both “Yes Indeed” (featuring Drake) and “Drip Too Hard” (with Gunna) is certified 6x Platinum and made the top 10 on the “Billboard” Hot 100, respectively, becoming two of Lil Baby’s most successful singles to date.
Dominique Armani Jones, better known as Lil Baby, was born on December 3, 1994, in Atlanta. Lil Baby’s father abandoned the family when he was just 2 years old, and his mother brought him up on her alone. His two sisters were a big part of his upbringing, and he left Booker T. Washington High School after his freshman year. Lil Baby was arrested in 2012 on multiple counts, including possession with the intent to sell.
When his attorney suggested he take a plea agreement of two years probation, Lil Baby sought a new attorney and had him placed in a program that would keep him in custody for only one. After getting into a confrontation with another inmate who made racist comments while they were both participating in this program, Lil Baby was forced to complete the full term of his original conviction. Two years apart, he was arrested twice for marijuana-related offenses: possession in 2013 and possession with intent to sell in 2014. After spending two years behind bars, Lil Baby launched his rap career with the help of Quality Control Music and his own label, 4PF (4 Pockets Full).
“Perfect Timing” was Lil Baby’s first mixtape. “Harder Than Hard” (with Marlo) came out in July, “2 The Hard Way” (also with Marlo) in October, and “Too Hard” in December. The single “Too Hard” was certified gold, and the album reached #80 on the “Billboard” 200 charts and #33 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. The mixtape’s title track, “Freestyle,” is a double-platinum hit, and its accompanying music video has amassed more than 400 million views on YouTube. “All of a Sudden” (with Moneybagg Yo) is yet another hit from “Too Hard” that peaked at #20 on the Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart and was certified Platinum.
Lil Baby’s “Harder Than Ever” studio album was released on May 18, 2018, and it includes the Gold song “Southside” and the 6x Platinum single “Yes Indeed.” After that, he dropped the collaborative mixtape, Drip Harder, with Gunna in October and the solo effort Street Gossip in November. The tracks “Drip Too Hard” (featuring Gunna) and “Close Friends” from “Drip Harder” went 9x Platinum and 4x Platinum, respectively, and the mixtape itself reached the top 10 on the “Billboard” 200 charts. Lil Baby performed on “FishCenter Live” on Adult Swim in September 2018, and he was featured on “Alley Oop” by Yung Gravy in December of the same year.
MTV’s “How High 2,” starring Lil Baby himself, premiered in 2019 and featured Baby’s performance on the show “Wild ‘N Out.” He also collaborated with Stefflon Don and Future on the hits “Out the Mud,” “Baby,” “Toast Up,” and “Woah,” which went triple platinum. On February 28, 2020, he released “My Turn,” his second studio album. It includes the platinum singles “Sum 2 Prove,” “Emotionally Scarred,” and “The Bigger Picture.” There were a total of twelve tracks from the album that made it onto the “Billboard” Hot 100.
In the wake of the George Floyd protests in June of 2020, Lil Baby produced the protest song “The Bigger Picture.” He split the money made from the song between Black Lives Matter, the NAACP, the Bail Project, and Breonna Taylor’s lawyer. The song was no. 3 on the “Billboard” Hot 100 and garnered two Grammy nods for Lil Baby. He also sang it during the Grammys in 2021. Drake’s “Wants and Needs,” which he appeared in, reached #2 on the “Billboard” Hot 100 list in March 2021. His joint effort with Lil Durk, “The Voice of the Heroes,” was released in June 2021 and quickly climbed to the top of the “Billboard” 200 charts.
