What is Kid Ink’s Net Worth?

Kid Ink is an American rapper and singer-songwriter who has a net worth of $2.5 million. Kid Ink released his debut studio album, “Up & Away,” in 2012.

Early Life

Kid Ink, whose real name is Brian Collins, was born on April Fool’s Day, 1986 in Los Angeles, California.

Career Beginnings

As a teenager, Collins attended after-school music programs where he was able to produce hip hop beats. In 2008, he landed his first legitimate production credit on a song, for a single by Nipsey Hussle. Collins soon began rapping full-time under the temporary stage name Rockstar. In early 2010, he released his first official mixtape, “World Tour.” The mixtape drew the attention of radio disc jockey DJ Ill Will, who subsequently signed Collins to the record label Tha Alumni Group and its joint label, 88 Classic. During this time, Collins changed his stage name to Kid Ink. He went on to release the mixtapes “Crash Landing,” “Daydreamer,” and “Wheels Up” in quick succession throughout 2011. Early the next year, Kid Ink was included in XXL magazine’s annual freshman class of emerging artists.
