How Travis Scott Achieved a Net Worth of $8 Million

When the conversation over a celebrity’s net worth begins, the focus is generally on the celebrity. But in the case of Travis Scott, he is more famously known for being the significant other of Kylie Jenner, who just happens to have a significantly higher net worth. They recently had a baby together, so financially taking care of the new born will not be a problem.

Yet Travis has managed to pave his own way to celebrity status by becoming a rapper. Make no mistake, Travis definitely used his “family” connections to smooth the road to success. In an interview with Billboard magazine, Travis said that he considers Kanye West as his “stepdad.” Nothing wrong with getting a boost up to the top.

While being a rapper is mainly what got him noticed in the music industry, he is also a record producer and keyboard player. This combination of talents got him noticed and he was awarded a contract with Epic records. That led to his first album, Rodeo, in 2015 which found its way to the top of the Rap charts. It placed #2 on the R&B/Hip-Hop chart, and made it to the top 5 on the Billboard 200 chart that same year.

While he achieved a lot of success upfront and on his own, he also collaborated with some of the biggest names in the R&B and Hip-Hop culture, including Kanye West, Jay-Z, John Legend, Drake, and Madonna. Celebrity photographers found him apparently romantically with Rihanna, which is likely to have produced her hit single “B**ch Better Have My Money.”

In addition to all this increasing his net worth, he has some hardware to show for his efforts as well. A BET Hip Hop award and a Teen Choice award are adorning his trophy case, and he was nominated as a featured artist on Justin Bieber’s album Purpose, which earned a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year in 2017.

The money trail looks like this. After signing his label deal with Epic Records in 2012 he followed that with a signed contract with Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music. Less than 6 months later he would sign yet another record deal with T.I.’s Grand Hustle Records.

His most significant money move came in 2016, with the release of his album “Birds in the Trap.” The reason this stands out from all the rest is that a single exclusive agreement with Apple can mean $500,000 before even a single album is sold or song is streamed. As it turned out, it was another magic move by Apple, who found their investment debuting at number one on the Billboard charts, selling 53,000 copies. But Apple Music is mostly about streaming, and he collected more than 50 million streams in the first week it was available.

Though exact numbers are not available, from what has been said here the vast majority of Travis Scott’s estimated $8 million net worth has come from only a few major hits and albums. Given his family connections and working with some of the best talent in the industry, many people expected him to be doing a lot financially better. But the thing is maybe he is not getting the recognition he deserves because of his high profile celebrity girlfriend and the very connections that helped him get started.

One of the rumors that keeps dogging Travis and one of the reasons people say his net worth should be much higher is that he spends money on a boatload of extravagant things. He is probably being influenced by all the people who he surrounds himself with, including Kylie Jenner. There’s no indication he has bought a home, which is usually a key component of net worth. He has ventured into a clothing line, and worked out a deal with Nike for his “Air Force 1 shoe. But there seems to be more expenses than assets at this point.

The upside to this apparently sparse net worth of $8 million is Travis Scott is only 27 years old. Young people tend to be careless with both money and fame, until they start taking their careers and finances seriously. His connections give him ample opportunities to find the right gigs, and he has a broad appeal to rap fans to showcase his many talents. Check back in a year to find out if he has settled down – financially and otherwise.
