In addition to his salary, Swizz Beatz has a lot of valuable assets, including his SoHo apartment that cost $17.9 million, Mercedes McLaren the cost of which was $450 000, and a Maybach 62 valued at $427 000. So in regards to his wealth, Swizz Beatz’s net worth is estimated to be $65 million. Needless to say, most of Beatz’s net worth has come from his producing career, as well as his other business ventures.

Swizz Beatz was born in 1978, in The Bronx, New York City. Beatz started out his career as a disc jockey and was fairly successful at it. Unfortunately, due to his continuous violent behavior in high school, he had to move to Georgia where he started working for his uncles’ record label called “Ruff Ryders”. It was with “Ruff Ryders” that Swizz Beatz began producing tracks and made friends with DMX, to whom he sold one of his first tracks, which was later turned into a famous “Ruff Ryders’ Anthem” song.

Around the age of 19, Beatz had already produced songs for Jay-Z, Eve and the very first compilation album for Ruff Ryders. The majority of songs produced by Swizz Beatz topped the music charts and became instant hits. However, even though Swizz Beatz is an exceptional record producer, he expanded his career to encompass many other ventures.

In 2001, Beatz founded his own record label called “Full Surface Records” with Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, Eve, Drag-On and Cassidy signed to it. In 2003, Beatz ventured into the fashion industry by becoming partnered with “Kidrobot”, a famous producer and retailer of designer toys and clothing. Later on, Swizz Beatz launched his own line of shoes under “Reebok’s” label. Both of these business ventures have made significant contributions to Swizz Beatz’ net worth and fame.

A famous record producer and designer, Swizz Beatz is also a talented painter. Beatz is not only fascinated with collecting paintings, but has been dabbling in painting himself. The proceeds from his paintings go directly to support “Children’s Cancer & Blood Foundation”.
