Slim Thug Net Worth $2 Million
Slim Thug’s passion for rapping started when he was a teenager, and when at the age of 17 he took up performing rap at local parties. Shortly after that, Slim Thug was noticed by a rap group label called “Swishahouse”, founded by Michael 5000 Watts and OG Ron C, and signed a record deal with them. However, Slim Thug soon realized that he could survive without the help of the label, and he eventually left “Swishahouse”. Thug made a debut in the music industry in 2004, when Mike Jones released “Still Tippin”, a collaboration between the two artists. “Still Tippin’” made it onto the music charts in the United States, and quickly sold more than a million copies, which earned it a Platinum certification from the RIAA.
This debut began the rise of Slim Thug’s net worth, and shortly after this collaboration, he came out with his debut album called “Already Platinum”, which was released to generally positive reviews, featured guest appearances from T.I., Jazze Pha, Pharrell and Pusha T, and did extremely well on the market, as it peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 chart and sold over 130,000 copies during its debut week. “Already Platinum” has now sold more than 500,000 copies worldwide. The album spawned such singles as “Like a Boss”, which was parodied by “The Lonely Island” comedy group, “3 Kings” and “I Ain’t Heard of That”. His net worth was growing steadily.
In addition to his solo work and collaborations, in 2004 Slim Thug created a hip hop collective under the name of “Boss Hogg Outlawz”. The group released their debut album entitled “Boyz-n-Blue” that same year. Together with “Boss Hogg Outlawz”, Slim Thug has released three more studio albums, the latest one being “Serve & Collect III”. A leader of the group, Slim Thug still did not abandon his solo career. In 2009, he came out with “Boss of All Bosses”, which was followed by his most recent album entitled “Tha Thug Show”, which was released in 2010. Around the same time, he made an appearance on several other tracks, including “Luxurious” with Gwen Stefani, as well as Beyoncé’s “Check It Out”, which topped the music charts.
In 2006, Slim Thug won a Best R & B Video Award for “Check On It”. All his work has added to his net worth.
In addition to music, Slim Thug also made an appearance on television screens, when in 2009 he guest starred on a late-night program, hosted by Jon Stewart, called “The Daily Show”.
In his personal life, Slim Thug is apparently still single, although in the past he was associated with singer LeToya Lucket, and has supposedly fathered a child with another unnamed woman.
