American singer and rapper Travis Scott started from the bottom but eventually sought his way to the top. From sleeping on couches to sleeping on warm beds, Scott has surely made a fortune from his career and his net worth has risen since he signed up with major record deals. We all might know him as the father to Kylie Jenner’s children, Stormi and Wolf, but surely there are still some things that he built by himself. Let us take a look at Travis Scott’s career and how it helped him have a bigger net worth.
Life Before Music
Born on April 30, 1991 as Jacques Bermon Webster II, he spent most of his life living with his grandmother in Houston, Texas. His life there wasn’t easy as he narrated his experience growing up in a neighborhood that involved a lot of crime. However, it seems that he didn’t let his environment affect him since it motivated him more to get out of the life that he had during that time. He eventually moved to Missouri City to stay with his parents and have a better chance at life. He graduated from high school and enrolled at the University of Texas at San Antonio, but he dropped out in his second year when he decided to pursue a full time career in Music.
Career Flops Prior His Success
Travis wasn’t a stranger to failure. Prior to his successful career now, he had to sleep on couches and was kicked out from his parents’ home in Missouri City. He went to Los Angeles where rapper T.I. had him go for a studio meeting. From there, T.I. already set Scott’s career path when he freestyled over the latter’s creations, “Animal”.
Music Career Now
In 2012, the rapper signed a major-label contract with Epic Records in addition to a publishing deal with GOOD Music, managed by Kanye West. He also signed with TI’s Grand Hustle alongside his contract with Epic in 2013. He finally released his debut studio album, Rodeo, in 2015. He finally reached the number one spot on Billboard 200 for his second album, Birds in the Trap Sing Mcknight, in 2016.
In the following years, he continuously secured amazing achievements on Billboard for having three songs under his name debuting at number one in just a span of less than a year!
Properties and Business
Because of his success in music, it is no surprise that Travis Scott already owns a number of properties and businesses.
He purchased a 12,000 square foot home that sits on a 1.5 acre land inside a gated community in Houston in 2019. The house property was said to have cost around $14 million. Just a year later in 2020, he then purchased a mansion in Brentwood, Los Angeles worth $23.5 million and another $6 million home in 2021.
As for business ventures, Travis Scott started his own record label in 2017, Cactus Jack Records. He also had collaborations with Nike in 2019 for a special Cactus Jack Air Jordan 1 and with Dior in 2021 for a menswear line.
Travis Scott’s Net Worth
Travis Scott surely started his career from scratch, which was made harder by his environment. But still, he did not let his experiences stop him and he continued to rise to make sure that his net worth rises along with him. His net worth this year is now said to have reached $60 million! Now while that may seem a bit normal for those in his line of work, we can still expect his net worth to go beyond what it is now because he easily earns about $40 million during his tours. Let us just hope that he starts touring again soon.
