Big Boy Net Worth $12 Million
Big Boy was born in Chicago, Illinois but grew up in Los Angeles with his parents Bob and Rachel and two siblings. His love for music started during his high school years in Culver City High School. Though he is not fond of playing any musical instruments, he found his gift in being a DJ. After some time, because of his huge body, he worked as a minder for The Pharcyde, a hip-hop group in the early 90’s and later on became friends with the BekaBoyz, hosts of KPWR Power 106’s radio morning show. Because of his gift for comedy and being always the funny guy, the boys offered him a spot in their radio show and he proved to be a hit with the audience. Big Boy did not just become famous but also infamous when his friends at Power 106 spread his near naked photo across various billboards throughout Los Angeles. However, his net worth was established.
Through the years Big Boy has been a consistent voice on the radio, increasing his fame and net worth. However, in 2003 due to some health problems, Big Boy underwent a procedure called duodenal switch surgery to reduce his weight from 500 pounds by a staggering 250 pounds. His journey to reducing his weight and being healthy was all recorded in his book “An XL Life: Staying Big at Half the Size”.
Even though radio is his primary focus, Big Boy has also appeared in movies and television shows from time to time. Some of the movies are “Malibu’s Most Wanted”, “Longest Yard”, “The Players Club”, and “Charlie’s Angels”. In 2002, he also cut a deal with Fox, to be part of the television show “Fastlane”. He also appeared in various episodes of the show “Entourage” and hosted the show “I Love New York” for VH1.
Big Boy also tried his hand at being an entrepreneur, and started his own production company Ida’s Son Production, in 2010. One of the company’s first project is the movie “Exit Strategy”. His production company alongside his movie and television cameos, all helped to further his career and net worth.
In 2015, after almost 20 years, Big Boy left his radio station KPWR and moved to iHeart’s Real 92.3 KRRL after signing a $10.5 million deal with the new station. Though he encountered some legal issues involving breach of contract, Big Boy still proceeded with the move.
In terms of his personal life, Big Boy is enjoying his time with his wife Veronica and their two children in Los Angeles.
