Rodney Ramone Hill Jr. was born on 28 December 1979, in Atlanta, Georgia USA, best known as a rapper by his stage name, Rocko, who has been involved in the music industry since 1990s, but who started out as a producer and a ghostwriter.

Rocko Net Worth $1 Million

So just how rich is Rocko? Sources have estimated that Rocko‘s Rocko‘s net worth is $1 million, which has mainly come from his career as a rapper and producer, but another source of his revenue may be acting, although so far the movie he‘s planned to star in, “The Spot“, has not yet been released.

Rocko‘s career progressed was when he started his own label in 2002, called Rocky Road Records. Then he started producing and writing songs for artists like Dem Franchize Boyz and Young Dro. Noticing potential, producer L.A. Reid signed Rocko up with Def Jam Records, where he released his first album called Self Made in 2008. The album was quite well received, making it to #4 spot in US Rap chart and #21 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. The single Umma Do Me from the same album also received recognition and achieved #7 place on the US Rap chart. The album and it‘s single definitely increased Rocko‘s net worth by a large margin. His next album, Wildlife, was also planned to be released by Def Jam Records, but Rocko left the label before releasing the album in 2010. This one unfortunately did not make it to the charts. Besides his own albums, Rocko has also worked with artists like Future, Nicki Minaj, Busta Rhymes, Sean Paul and Gucci Mane. Regardless, all the above increased Rocko‘s net worth.

In 2012 Rocko returned to producing with rapper Future‘s album Pluto. This album took #2 spot on US Rap and R&B lists and #8 on US chart. Rocko also produced the next album for Future, entitled Honest, released in 2014 and was even more sucessful, taking #1 spots on US Rap and R&B lists and #2 on US chart.

The most controvertial, but popular of Rocko‘s songs is U.O.E.N.O.. By many it was interpreted as condoning date rape, namely the lines “Put molly all in her champagne/ She ain’t even know it/ I took her home and I enjoyed that/ She ain’t even know it.” rapped by Rick Ross. This prompted a petition of 72,000 signatures that demanded Reebok drop Rick Ross as a spokesperson, which resulted in Reebok dropping the rapper a month after the song‘s release. Rocko had to remove the notorious lines from the song to get it featured on the radio. The net worth of both Rocko and Ross took a hit thanks to this event.

Rocko has also made a few TV appearances. In 2009 he was a guest on the reality show “Monica: Still Standing“. In 2013 he starred in “Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta‘s“ second season and had a guest appearance in “T.I and Tiny: The Family Hustle“.

As for his personal life, Rocko is the father of three children, including two children with R&B performer Monica. However, they officially split up in 2010, apparently because Rocko cheated on Monica.
