How Rich Is Chingy? Net Worth, Salary, Career


Chingy’s name was just included in the list of the 50 Worst Rappers, and he voiced his disappointment in an interview with VladTV. The rapper’s name was placed with the names of other well-known people like Master P, Diddy, French Montana, and others.

The rapper, whose actual name is Howard Earl Bailey Jr., said that the total number of recordings he has sold throughout his career proves that his name should not be on the list. Howard requested that the list be deleted since the whole world’s population is not surveyed, and even said that the list is incorrect. On social media, his supporters responded similarly. Howard said that he listened to one of his old songs and was startled that someone could regard him as one of the worst since the lyrics were decent in his opinion.

Chingy, 42, has been rapping for nearly three decades.

Chingy began rapping as a teenager, and his debut song, Right Thurr, was released in 2003. The track established him as a fan favorite and was awarded Gold by the Australian Recording Industry Association and the Canadian Recording Industry Association. The 42-year-net old’s worth is estimated to be approximately $2 million by CelebrityNetWorth as of August 2023. Although precise information on his assets is not accessible, his work in the music business has earned him a lot throughout the years.


Ludacris and his manager Chaka Zulu first signed the rapper to the Disturbing Tha Peace label. Jackpot, his first album, was released in July 2003 and included various acts as guests. The album was a success, and it was followed in 2004 with his second album, Powerballin’. The song I Do from Powerballin’ is in the soundtrack of the video game Need for Speed: Underground 2.

Hoodstar, his third album, was released in September 2006, and his song, Pullin’ Me Back, helped him maintain his position at the top of the Hot Rap Tracks list. Hood star finished ninth, and the songs Brand New Kicks and Hands Up were well received by the public. Hate It or Love It was his fourth studio album, and the hit Fly Like Me featured Amerie. The album debuted at number 84 on the Billboard 200 in 2007.


Chingy started production on his fifth album, No Risk No Reward, but the release was postponed owing to financial difficulties. In March 2012, he released the mixtape Jackpot Back. In November 2013, the rapper released another song, Watch The World, which peaked at number two on the iTunes Urban list. He then signed with Bungalo Records and joined B2K on their Millennium Tour in 2019. In 2005, he made his television debut in the comedy series My Wife and Kids, followed by One on One and George Lopez. He appears in the 2006 horror parody film Scary Movie 4, as well as the TV series Yo Momma and the 2010 film Speed-Dating.
