Kendrick Lamar Net Worth 2014 – 2015: $13 Million

Kendrick Lamar Duckworth, formerly known as K.Dot is among the list of new up and coming rappers who are actually worth listening to. Although I personally don’t see Kendrick as a new rapper anymore, in my eyes he’s already a veteran who has earned his stripes and honors, therefore, he deserves respect and admiration from every single player in the hip hop game. Lamar has had a huge impact among the hip-hop community, because the guy is actually trying to deliver a message, he doesn’t just brag about cars and money in his songs, although he has both, it seems to me like he’s actually trying to reach, teach, preach, etc.

He says that his favorite rappers are The Notorious B.I.G., Tupac Shakur, and Jay-Z among several others, he was inspired and influenced by them so deeply that his rapping style actually resembles some of the best hip-hop artists of all time. I guess that to be great you have to learn from the best, that’s why he’s quickly becoming one of the hottest rappers in the game, and also one of the highest paid.

Kendrick Lamar was born in Compton, California, he got his start in the game at the age of 16 when he released his first mixtape called “Youngest Head Nigga in Charge (Hub City Threat: Minor of the Year)”, which was quite successful and gained him a lot of attention, as well as a contract with Top Dawg Entertainment. A few years later Lamar and other up and coming artists from the TDE label went on tour and opened for the rapper “Game”, although back in those days he was still known as K.Dot. In 2009 he dropped the K.Dot name and changed it to just Kendrick Lamar, and on that same year he released a self titled extended play, however, he really hit it big time after releasing his two first major albums which were titled “Overly Dedicated” and “Section.80”.

Lamar has made his wealth rapping, he makes most of his money from album and mixtape sales, digital downloads, concerts, and merchandising. I guess that he also earns a nice chunk of money for his work as one of the members of the west coast hip-hop group “Black Hippy”, in which he sings alongside Jay Rock, Ab-Soul, and Schoolboy Q.

But, how much is Kendrick Lamar really worth? Well, according to several online media outlets and magazines, Lamar Duckworth currently has an estimated net worth of $10 million, other sources believe that he’s worth somewhere around $11 million. However, after making our own calculations and taking into account the most recent information about his career, salary, and earnings, we have come to the conclusion that he might be a little bit richer than what most people think, or say. We believe that Kendrick has a total fortune of $14 million dollars approximately.

Forbes Magazine has not ranked him yet on their 100 Richest Celebrities list, however, they did rank him at #14 on their popular Hip-Hop Cash Kings list of 2013 with estimated earnings of $9 million dollars throughout the year. Forbes also said that Kendrick is on the verge to become Compton’s next Cash King, which would be a huge honor considering all the hip-hop magnates that have come out of there.
