Riff Raff Net Worth 2014 – 2015: $2.4 Million
Riff Raff’s real name is Horst Christian Simco, most of you might remember him from MTVs reality show “From G’s to Gents”, but he’s actually been a rapper since 2005, however, people only started hearing about him in 2008 right after he began his online campaign via popular video sharing sites and social networks such as YouTube and MySpace. I have to admit that I became a fan right after I saw his first video, I mean they guy is really funny, and despite being a white guy with red hair and blue eyes, he can rap.
Riff Raff is currently signed to Diplo’s label “Mad Decent”, however, at the the beginning of his career he was signed by S.O.D. Money Gang Inc., the deal was made right after his YouTube channel became popular. Simco’s YouTube channel has managed to get almost 200 million views and more than 100,000 subscribers, that means that the guy has an audience, and a big one that is.
Riff Raff’s first major studio album came late and it was probably better than what most people expected, however, he did release a lot of mixtapes years earlier and most of them had commercial and critical success. Horst is currently working on his second studio album titled “Neon Icon” which is scheduled for release in 2014.
But, how much is Riff Raff really worth? Well, according to several magazines and online media outlets Simco has an estimated net worth of $2 million, however, after making our own calculations and taking into account his most recent work, we have come to the conclusion that he has a fortune of $2.4 million dollars. Forbes has not included Riff Raff in their popular Hip-Hop’s Cash Kings list, but if he keeps making awesome records, he will continue making more money, and if he makes enough money he’ll make it there, someday.
