J-Kwon had a very difficult childhood, as he was raised in his mother’s house until he was kicked out as a 12-year-old boy, reportedly for dealing in illegal drugs. Thus, he spent a lot of time on the streets of St. Louis, and frequently slept at friends’ houses. He was also expelled from school, so he began to gain popularity being involved in rap battles.
J-Kwon’s professional career in the world of music began in the early 2000s, when he started working on his first single, entitled “Tipsy”, which soon became an enormous hit, peaking at No. 1 on the US Rap chart and No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It also reached the Top 10 in Ireland, New Zealand, Australia and the UK. With the single, his net worth was established.
The song was followed by his first studio album named “Hood Hoop” (2004), which reached No. 4 on the US R&B chart and No. 7 on the Billboard 200 chart. The sales of the album certainly increased the overall size of his net worth to a large degree, but in addition to that, his popularity also rose, as he collaborated with such great American artists as Big B, and Jermaine Dupri among others.
After the initial success of the album, he immediately started working on his second release; however, as his popularity rose, he started to feature on other artist’s recordings too, which postponed his second album until 2008. He worked with Bow Wow on his song “Fresh Azimiz”, and Petey Pablo and Ebony Eyez on the song “”Get XXX’d”, for the film “XXX: State Of The Union”. All of these works contributed a lot to his overall wealth.
His second album, entitled “Hood Hoop 2” came out in 2008, but it wasn’t as successful as his debut album. J-Kwon tried to bounce back with an immediate follow up, entitled “Hood Hoop 2.5” (2009), but without major success. After that he started his own record label, entitled “Gracie Entertainment”, through which he has released his latest album, “J-Kwon”, in 2010, which also added to his net worth. However, he has been rather quiet on the music scene for the last couple of years. Speaking about his personal life, there is no information in the media about J-Kwon, as he obviously keeps his private life to himself.
