In 2012, Kendrick Lamar’s net worth reached $12 million after he signed a major record label deal with Aftermath and Interscope records. After signing, he debuted his first major label called, good kid, M.A.A.d city, which was a huge success.

Kendrick knew he wanted to be rapper after he watched Tupac Shakur and Dr. Dre film their music video for the hit single “California Love”. After that, Kendrick knew that he wanted to be a famous rapper.
In 2004, (when he was 16) Lamar released his first mix-tape title Youngest Head Nigga in Charge under his previous stage name K-Dot. This mix-tape gained a lot of local attention for Kendrick and would be the stepping stone to boost his music career and net worth.
4 years later, Kendrick was featured in a popular music video for Lil Wayne and gained a lot of attention by Warner Bros Records. He gained even more exposure when a video surfaced of him free-styling at a Charles Hamilton show.
in 2009, Lil Wayne decided to co-sign Kendrick which allowed him to released his 3rd mix tape called C4 and his net worth shot to the roof after the release.
Throughout 2010 and 2011, Lamar got a lot of attention after going on tour with Tech N9ne and Jay Rock. In the years following, he released mulitple singles that made waves across the hip hop industry.
Kendrick made controversy by naming rappers in his songs and vowing to lyrically “murder” them. Some of the rappers he called out were J. Cole, Meek Mill, Asap Rocky and Mac Miller. These rappers were not happy and it created a stir in the hip-hop industry, which some say is the key to Kendrick Lamar’s success and net worth.
In 2013, he got his big break by going on tour with Kanye West for the Yeezus Tour. Later that year Kendrick won 5 awards at the BET Awards including Lyricist of the Year and Album of the Year which would boost his net worth to over $20 million by 2014.
