Benzino Net Worth 2014 – 2015: $11 Million
Raymond “Benzino” Scott is a well known entrepreneur and hip hop media executive who has made a lot of money throughout his life by getting involved in several successful business ventures, as well as for his work as a record producer, rapper, and reality television star.
Most people don’t know that Ray is co-owner of The Source and Hip Hop Weekly Magazine, he was also one of the founding members of the rap group Made Men, but eventually he left the group to pursue his solo career. As a solo artist, Benzino probably hasn’t been as successful as other hip hop powerhouses such as Jay-Z or 50 Cent, in fact, smaller yet extremely talented rappers like Wiz Khalifa and Mac Miller are more popular among rap fans than him.
However, what he lacks as a rapper, he makes up for by being a business genius and a media-savvy guy who knows exactly how to use his powers in order to draw attention and make a lot of money. I don’t know if you remember this, but a good example of what I mean can be traced all the way back to the year 2002, when he started a feud with Eminem after calling him the new Vanilla Ice. Back in those days Eminem was a rapping beast, so obviously Scott was not able to compete against Shady in the hip-hop arena, however, he did use The Source to try to fight back, and apparently he won, or at least he felt he did.
Now Benzino is more famous than ever before, after becoming one of the cast members of VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta” his popularity has skyrocketed straight through the roof and up into the stars, to achieve what we know as “Stardom Level”. Now more people know who he is and he’s probably making more money as well, plus he’s the richest cast member on the show, even more so than other popular rappers and singers who are also starring on the show such as Lil Scrappy, Rasheeda, Karlie Redd, and Joseline Hernandez among others.
Scott is a smart guy, he controls part of the hip hop industry through his rap magazines, he’s currently starring in a very successful tv reality show produced and aired on VH1 called “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta”, and even though he threatened to leave one time, he didn’t, but that doesn’t mean that he’s not looking for other options, according to Bossip he will soon be starring in his own reality show “Sucker For Love”. It looks like Ray Scott will continue making a lot of money as always, no surprise about that.
But, how much is Benzino really worth? Well, according to several online media outlets and magazines Scott has an estimated net worth of $10 million, however, after making our own calculations and taking into account his most recent work and earnings, we have come to the conclusion that he’s a little bit richer than what most people think, we believe that Benzino’s estimated net wealth or fortune is $11 million dollars approximately. Forbes Magazine has not included him on any of their popular lists such as the Hip Hop Cash Kings list, and the 100 Richest Celebrities list, but that does not mean that he won’t be able to make it there someday, if he keeps working hard and maintains his dedication and commitment to his work ethic he’ll get there soon enough, no doubt about that.
