With three studio albums, three mixtapes, multiple headlining tours and several Grammy nominations under his belt, rapper and producer Travis Scott has a high net worth. However, it’s significantly lower than the net worth of girlfriend Kylie Jenner. The “Goosebumps” artist has a net worth of $60 million, while Kylie’s is a whopping $700 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
While Kylie earns most of her money from her cosmetics company, Kylie Cosmetics, Travis has earned a large portion of his earnings from his music career and previous endorsement deals.
Keep reading to see how Travis Scott makes his money.
The Houston-born musician got his big break in 2012 when he signed as an artist with Epic Records and a producer with GOOD Music. (Coincidentally, the founder of GOOD is none other than Kanye West, now-estranged husband of Kylie’s half-sister Kim Kardashian.
Since then, Travis released two mixtapes — 2013’s Owl Pharaoh, 2014’s Days Before Rodeo — and three studio albums — 2015’s Rodeo, 2016’s Bird in the Trap Sing McKnight, 2018’s Astroworld. His fourth and upcoming album, Utopia, is scheduled for a 2022 release. He landed his first Grammy nomination in 2014 for his work on Justin Bieber’s album Purpose.
By 2017, Travis acquired a Nike endorsement deal, which led him to become one of the highest paid rap artists in the world in 2018, Forbes reported at the time. One year later, he went on to earn $58 million, landing him on Forbes‘ Highest-Paid Hip-Hop Acts 2019. His ticket sales also contribute to his fortune, as his 2018-2019 Astroworld tour ended up grossing a total of $64 million.
Travis is a father one one, as he welcomed daughter Stormi Webster with girlfriend Kylie in February 2018. The pair are also expecting their second child together, due in early 2022.
The “Sicko Mode” rapper unfortunately found himself at the center of a tragedy in 2021 that took place at his annual Astroworld Festival. After Travis (real name: Jacques Bermon Webster II) began his headlining performance at the festival on November 5, the crowd “began to compress toward the” stage, per Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña, who explained the details in a press conference following the incident. As a result, 10 attendees died from “compression asphyxia,” per the medical examiner’s assessment.
Travis has faced backlash for not stopping his concert when some crowd members attempted to call for help. He defended himself in an interview with Charlamagne Tha God the following month, asserting he was not aware of the casualties until after his performance was over.
