Kendrick Lamar, one of the dopest MC’s to ever take part in the game has made a killing in 2017-2018, catapulting his net worth and nearly tripling it. His hustle includes working with The Game, Slim Shady, Dr Dre and even Snoop Doggy Dogg himself- with all his skill to spit fire, Kendrick even earned himself a W as recent as Eminem’s Kamikaze record, saying the West Coast rapper was in the clear.

Named by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg as “The New King of the West Coast,” in 2018 Kendrick Lamar’s net worth is estimated to be approximately $45 million. Much of this dough came up in the 2017-2018 period- between “Humble,” his “Album” album and the massively popular Black Panther soundtrack, Kendrick made it big and went from around $18 million to $45 in a single year.

With Black Panther getting its streaming and disk drop in May 2018, Kendrick’s still getting residuals coming in from that project, which theatrically grossed more than 1.347 BILLION. With new projects and collabs on the calendar, Kendrick Lamar’s fortune is only set to grow in the time to come.
