Tego Calderon Net Worth $3.5 Million

To begin with, he grew up in an ordinary family, his mother, Pilar Rosario Parrilla, was a teacher whereas his father, Esteban Calderon Ilarraza, was government official. At the end of his studies, Tego engaged in all kinds of odd jobs to survive – taxi driver, parking attendant, etc and said that the experience has helped him to shape his musical style. In three years Tego became the symbol of his style entitled reggaeton, in which he mixes rap tinted with tropical salsa, African rhythms, and dances while using acoustic instruments and turntables. Tego Calderón practices rhyming slang languages and particularly the slang of the 1960s, and the language of popular neighbouring countries of Puerto Rico. His favourite theme is the racism in Puerto Rico. His music is a huge success in the USA and Canada, and has been more timidly introduced into Europe via Spain.

His first album “El Ayabarde” (2002) was a huge success and it was followed by a compilation album “El Enemy de los Guasíbiri” (2004). In the summer of 2005, Calderón completed a contract between his own independent music label, Jiggiri Records, and Atlantic Records, making him the first reggaeton artist to join a major industry. The first album under the new label was “The Underdog (El Subestimado)”, released in 2006. The latter reached the top position on Billboard Latin Rhythm and second on Billboard Latin charts. Soon, the following studio album entitled “El Abayarde Contraataca” (2007) was released although it was not as successful as the previous one, taking 6th position on Billboard Latin. It should be mentioned that both albums were acclaimed by critics and for both of them Calderon was nominated for Grammy Awards – his net worth was rising.

In 2007 he started acting, debuting in the film “Illegal Tender” (2007). In 2009, he was in the main cast of the action film “Fast & Furious” directed by Justin Lin. Tego collaborated in recording the soundtrack under the same name. In 2015, he released the studio album “El Que Sabe, Sabe” which respectively took the first and the second positions on the Billboard Latin Rhythm and Latin charts; the album won a Latin Grammy Award in the category of the Best Urban Music Album. Overall, music is the most important source of Tego Calderon’s net worth.

Finally, in the personal life of the rapper and actor, Tego Calderon married Michelle Peterbauer in 2006. The family has two children: Ebony Nairobi Calderón and Malcolm X Calderón.
