Tyler the Creator Net Worth Tyler the Creator has an estimated net worth of $4 million. Tyler the Creator Net Worth Tyler the Creator is the leader of the alternative hip hop collective OFWGKTA. Tyler the Creator Net Worth is the alternative hip-hop crew’s main rapper, producer, and source of inspiration.
Tyler the Creator Net Worth got his first taste of fame when The Los Angeles Times ran a “teen on the street”-type story on the then 16-year-old skateboarding enthusiast, who was also interested in music and fashion. Tyler bigger fame came from his single “Yonkers”, which Kanye west called “the video of 2011” on Twitter. Tyler, the Creator was born Tyler Okonma on March 6th, 1991; Ladera Heights, Los Angeles, California, USA. Rose by his single mother, who is of Nigerian and European-Canadian descent
Tyler’s musical career officially kicked off in 2009, when he released the mixtape Bastard. A rapper’s first mixtape isn’t always that successful, but Bastard was a massive hit. Okonma had begun work on the tape in 2007, and the two years that was poured into it certainly paid off. It received positive reviews from publications like Complex and Pitchfork, and some of its most popular tracks were “Bastard”, “French!” which featured Hodgy Beats, and “Odd Toddlers”. Okonma wasn’t just content with having a single popular mixtape, however. In 2011, he released “Yonkers”, a single to come from his debut studio album Goblin. This song was one of Tyler’s first major mainstream hits, and it allowed him to begin accruing something that resembled a dedicated fan base. The release of the single “She” coincided with the official release of Goblin, and it only caused Tyler’s fame to increase.

Tyler-the-creator-she“She” was a seriously popular single, and to date it’s one of the most popular songs that Okonma has ever released. It features the vocals of Frank Ocean, who was really just getting his start at the time of the single’s release. It’s worth noting at this point that Tyler is a founding member of Odd Future, a hip-hop collective that consists of artists like Mike G, Earl Sweatshirt, Frank Ocean, Domo Genesis, and Jasper Dolphin. Former members of Odd Future include the likes of Casey Veggies, Matt Martians, and Syd. I mention this because Okonma’s second studio album, Wolf, prominently featured collaborations that included different Odd Future members. Wolf was released in 2013, and it debuted at number 3 on the Billboard 200. This album only featured one single, in “Domo23”. With Wolf, Tyler was looking to separate himself from his previous sound, which carried very dark and graphic themes of murder and rape.
Outside of Wolf, Tyler was also willing to work with some other popular artists through collaboration. During this time, he would work alongside artists like Lil Wayne, Pusha T, Waka Flocka Flame, and Game. The mainstream popularity of Odd Future eventually allowed them to get their own television show, a comedy series called Loiter Squad. Loiter Squad aired on Adult Swim starting in 2012, and it was produced by the same people who made the show Jackass. Loiter Squad did pretty well for itself, and it only served to increase the popularity and success of the Odd Future collective. (Even to this day, Tyler and his friends have a strong following among people who don’t even listen to their music.) After a brief hiatus, Okonma released the lead single “Fucking Young” off of his upcoming album Cherry Bomb. Tyler informed his fans that Cherry Bomb was going to be releasing in 2015, just a week or so following the release of this single.
Tyler-the-creator-cherry-bombAs it turns out, Okonma was true to his word. He released Cherry Bomb on April 13th, with physical copies beginning to roll out beginning on April 28th. This album was significantly more star-studded than a lot of his previous work, featuring collaboration from an array of artists that includes the likes of Schoolboy Q, Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Pharrell Williams, and Coco O. Tyler looked to support the release of the album through a world tour, which was cut short due to a couple of different controversies. The Australian leg of his tour was cancelled entirely due to national protests involving his depiction of women in his music. His tour dates in the United Kingdom were cancelled due to the fact that Okonma is actually banned from visiting the country due to his controversial lyrics. Either way, the Cherry Bomb album was successful enough on its own.

His Music Controversies Tyler the Creator Net Worth

The following is an excerpt from his interview with LA Weekly, discussing the controversy.
“I’m so glad that’s over,” Tyler says, wearing a pink and teal OF donut hoodie, black jeans, Vans and a green hat. “I wasn’t using ‘fag’ to refer to gay people. If I call a piece of lettuce a faggot, am I homophobic? I might be anti-lettuce but …” he said. (Don’t worry; most people aren’t exactly sure how to take that one, either.)
He’s a Fan and a Friend of Frank Ocean Tyler the Creator Net Worth
Tyler isn’t just a fan of Frank Ocean’s (and his album) but he is a close friend of his, as well. He wasn’t afraid to let the world know, in an interview with GQ.
“I liked it a lot. Like, it’s my favorite thing from him. It’s weird because I’m friends with him and this album made me so, so, so much of a fan boy. It’s crazy because I was with him when it came out; like that week or whatever, and I kept complimenting him on certain songs, certain little things that I liked in different songs. And I low-key think he started getting annoyed because I just kept badgering him about how much I liked the album. But I really, really f—g like it. And I’m really hyped for him and he’s hyped and shit’s great.”
He Was Seen Collaborating with Pharrell Tyler the Creator Net Worth

He’s Got His Own Fashion Line Tyler the Creator Net Worth
The “Yonkers” singer has always been an admirer of clothes and he finally gets to live out his dreams. Last year, the rapper designed the Golf Le Fleur sneakers and furniture for his fashion show.
“Making a shoe isn’t easy. I’m still putting finishing touches on it and trying to make sure it’s the perfect shoe so I don’t have to worry about shit later,” he said in an interview with GQ. “So I can just focus on cool color ways and cool shit to do around it. It’s coming soon. They’re f***in sick and I’m really hyped. I hope that it’s successful so I can sponsor people that I think are cool, whether I’m sponsoring just the skate kids that I see. Or like artists that I’m a fan of. There’s a whole subculture of kids who ride go-karts, for real. Sponsoring random sh-t like that that, I’m into. Everyone goes for the basketball players and football players and stuff.”
