Born Dimitri Leslie Roger, Rich the Kid is a famous American rapper and record producer. Born in 1992, he entered the music industry at a relatively young age. Since then, his hard work paid off. Now, Rich the Kid’s cash flow is over $10 million. He says he is the hardest working rapper in the industry. And judging by his earnings, he might be right.
His parents divorced when he was 13 years old. He moved in with his mother to Woodstock, Georgia. As a young kid, he listened to artists like 50 Cent, Young Jeezy, and 2pac.
During his school days, he was a joker. Some saw him as the class clown. And he often got into trouble. After Dimitri finished school, he found a job at Wendy’s, a fast-food chain. That didn’t last long. In his words, customers told him that working at the restaurant will not bring much satisfaction.
After that, he briefly considered a career in basketball. But after the first studio session at just 16, he knew rapping is the career for him. In the beginning, he used the Black Boy da Kid moniker. He released mixtapes in 2010, and in 2013, he collaborated with Migos on the first installment of the Streets on Lock mixtape. These mixtapes took his career and music to a new level.
In 2013, he released his debut solo mixtape “Been About the Benjamins”. That was before the collaboration with Migos, releasing Streets on Lock Volume 1 and Volume 2. In the following years, they also released Volume 3 and Volume 4. These mixtapes featured artists like Jeremih, K Camp, Young Thug, Kirko Bangz, Rockie Fresh, and more.
In 2014, he released the single On My Way as a teaser for his third mixtape, Rich Than Famous. In 2015, Rich released another collaborative mixtape with Migos, this time titled Still on Lock. They followed it up with other mixtapes, featuring artists like Ty Dolla Sign, Young Dolph, Master P, Rich Homie Quan, Young Greatness, Jerz, Tray1, and much more.
In June 2017, he announced that he signed a deal with Interscope Records. He got offers from other labels, including Columbia, Epic, RCA, and more. But he chose Interscope because they understood his vision and label.
In September 2017, he released the single New Freezer featuring Kendrick Lamar. The single was a teaser for the debut album The World is Yours, released in March 2018. The album peaked at Number 13 on the Billboard Hot 100. His second album, The World is Yours 2, debuted at number four on the US Billboard 200.
Career in Fashion
Besides his music career, Rich the Kid is a successful fashion mogul as well. He paved his way as a successful entrepreneur. In 2018, he continued to pave his way through the fashion industry as a model and brand ambassador.
He signed with Wilhelmina Models to be a model and spokesperson. He is now closer to brands. Rich says his favorite brands are Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, and Off-White.
Rich the Kid fortune is more than $10 million. He worked with many artists to get there. His commitment to his craft, combined with a savvy business attitude is what helped him get the fortune.
Unlike other artists, he took a different path. He says “I am the hardest-working in the industry”. Putting so much work into his career pays off.
His Rich Forever Label earns him close to $1 million per year. As a famous rapper and record producer, his songs bring a lot of fortune. But he also earns money from his modeling and fashion career.
Rich the Kid got married to Antonette Willis. The couple has two children, but in 2018, Willis filed for divorce. She accused him of cheating with Blac Chyna and India Love. His former wife also accused him of abuse. Antonette said he forced her to abortions regularly. She asked for spousal support and full physical custody of the children.
In 2018, after the divorce, he got into a relationship with Tori Hughes. On June 15, 2018, he got hospitalized following a home invasion at Hughes’s home. According to the report, men entered the home carrying firearms and demanded money. Rich attempted to confront them, but they beat him up.
