Chuck D Net Worth $15 Million

I have just learned that Chuck D net worth is currently estimated at $15 million and I must confess I ‘m kind of surprised. In the end, he is typically named among the best MCs there are (for example, in the Top 50 MCs of Our Time list published by he was rated No. 9), so should not he be one of the richest, also? Oh well, life is just not honest which is not always the greatest talents that manage to bring most listeners or sale most records. Nevertheless, I believe that it’s worth to take a closer look at the sources of Chuck D net worth and his career in general.

Chuck ascended to stardom in the mid-1980s, as a leader of one of the very leading hip hop groups in history, Public Enemy. The group’s first record, titled Yo! Bum Rush the Show, premiered in 1987 and peaked at No. 125 on the U.S. Billboard Top LPs chart. Even more to the point, it received excellent critical reviews. For example, sometime after its release NME, a British weekly music journalism publication, wrote: “Yo! Bum Rush The Show announced a hip-hop group who smouldered beneath dark, thin beats like no other, presented us to the coolest sung double act ever…and featured as striking a statement of intent as you may wish for in ‘Public Enemy Number 1’….brilliant”. For those who have not heard a single mentioned in this review (or another one, titled “You’re Gonna Get Yours”), you should definitely get it done today. There isn’t any other way to understand the energy this debut record radiated, but to listen to some of its tracks. Up thus far, the group headed by Chuck D has released 12 studio albums, 4 video records and 39 singles. Each of the releases contributed to the development of Chuck D net worth.

Chuck D net worth increase intensified in the 1990s, as the band released its third studio album, titled Fear of a Black Planet. This album sold over 1 million copies on the first week, procuring a platinum certificate from Recording Industries Association of America, and charted in English-speaking nations throughout the world — New Zealand, Canada and Australia. The best standing it reached on Billboard 200 was 10th. Five of the songs contained in this record, “Fight the Power”,”911 Is a Joke”, “Welcome to the Terrordome”, “Can Not Do Nuttin’ for Ya Man”, and “Brothers Gonna Work It Out” — all became huge hits among the hip hop fan community and charted on Popular Rap Songs. Public Enemy’s fourth studio album, titled Apocalypse 91… The Enemy Strikes Black, was much more popular compared to the previous one, peaking at No. 4 on Billboard 200. “Can’t Trust It”, one of the singles comprised in this record, became Public Enemy’s first hit to enter Billboard Hot 100 chart.
