A$AP Rocky's Net Worth In 2024 Is Ma$$ive—But Nothing Compared to Rihanna's

A$AP Rocky

A$AP Rocky's net worth in 2024 is as pretty as he is.

The Harlem-born rapper actually started at the bottom (yes, we're looking at you, Jimmy from Degrassi), and now he's enjoying the top—rife not just with cash, but also with fashion week invitations, a billionaire partner in Rihanna and two babies that are too cute for this planet.

A big part of the "LSD" rapper's success comes from his exacting taste in everything from acoustics to accoutrements, and he brings that to his personal branding and output.

"I really wanted to put myself in a position where I made a collaborative brand as opposed to being a brand that puts out sh-t just for the sake of accumulating capital," he told GQ in 2021. "I'm all about making money! But I want to do it in the right, fly way."

And how. Find out just how rich A$AP Rocky's gotten since hitting it big.

How did A$AP Rocky become famous?

Born Rakim Athelaston Mayers in Harlem on Oct. 3, 1988, A$AP Rocky and his sister Erika were raised with a love of hip-hop—their parents reportedly named them after the iconic rap duo Eric B. & Rakim (cute!)

Rocky started rapping when he was just 9 years old after his family moved from New York City to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Rocky's father went to prison when Rocky was 12, and his family resorted to living in shelters. A year later, Rocky's older brother was murdered. The tragedies served as motivation and the latter especially as a catalyst for his career.

"He was like the revolutionary big brother," Rocky told The Fader. "He would make me feel secure, and if it wasn't for him being able to get that confidence out of me, I wouldn't have had the balls to discover I had a talent."

He had talent, but also a day job: He turned to selling drugs to support himself until he made it as a rapper, and he moved with his mom and Erika to an Elmwood, N.J., condominium. "I needed peace of mind to be creative," he told The New York Times of his motivation to opt for suburban life. "I needed peace of mind because I was getting street money and I didn't want anybody trying to stick my family up."

In 2007, Rocky joined a group of friends and fellow emcees that eventually became the A$AP Mob, which he affectionately calls his extended family. For years, they worked and even lived together in the New Jersey condo that Rocky shared with his mom and Erika.

Rocky dropped his first music video, "Purple Swag," in July 2011, shortly after he quit selling drugs. The song went viral, but it wasn't until August when his mixtape track "Peso" leaked and aired on New York City's iconic Hot 97 radio station that he garnered mainstream attention, both for his flow and his fashion sense (the man can dress!). He signed a $3 million record deal and was on his way.

He was already thinking about global domination when his hometown finally learned to embrace him. "I would not consider myself to be a quote unquote real New York rapper," he cracked to The New York Times that September. "I don't even like New York rappers."

He told GQ that he's been choosing his own clothes since he was kindergarten-age and that his fashion sense infiltrates the rest of his work: "This sh-t is more than just rap for me. I'm into design, I'm into detail, I'm into elevated taste value."
