Tupac Shakur Net Worth is $40 Million (as of 2019)
It is claimed that Tupac Shakur net worth is in the $40 million dollar range. This would make him one of the richest hip hop recording artists who have ever lived, and I must say I would not be surprised he is in the list. After all, this talented MC, often mentioned among the greatest MC‘s of all time, has sold over 75 million records. Those of you who really admire Shakur must also know that he was a talented dancer and promising actor. In other words, he had everything one needs to be a global star. It is horrible that his life and career ended when he was still very young, just a 25-year-old. But perhaps an early and tragic death, among other things, contributed to the longevity of his memory in the society. To this day Tupac is often mentioned as the most influential rapper of all time. So let‘s take a closer look at his career and death.
|Net Worth:||$40 Million|
Although Tupac‘s career was short, his legacy includes 12 studio albums (half of them were posthumous: R U Still Down? (Remember Me), Until the End of Time, Better Dayz , Loyal to the Game and Pac’s Life), 11 compilation albums, 44 singles and 50 music videos. Each of them contributed to the growth of Tupac Shakur net worth. But when exactly it started to increase? It started in the early 1990s, as the would-be millionaire released his debut solo album, tiled 2Pacalypse Now. In this record he dealt with variety of social problems that American society was facing at the time (and in many cases still is): black on black crime, teenage pregnancy, police brutality, racism, etc. This political (or social) inclination was one of the most appealing things about this album, as well as Tupac’s later tracks. Although at the time of release 2Pacalypse Now was not extraordinarily popular, by the end of 2011 it distributed 923,455.
The last of Tupac’s albums produced mostly while the star was still alive was The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory and released November 5, 1996, a couple of months after he was shot. Although not every song on the album became a hit, nowadays the album is widely considered a hip-hop classic and one of Tupac Shakur’s crowning achievements. The album features in various lists of greatest hip-hop albums, including Greatest Hip-Hop Albums Of All Time, The 25 Best Posthumous Albums of All Time and so on. The album has also performed great commercially: upon the time of release it knocked The Beatles out of No. 1 spot and took the place. Obviously, the success of this album has determined a significant increase in Tupac Shakur net worth. Sadly, the artist did not live to enjoy his growing fortune.
