How Much is Travis Scott worth?
Travis Scott is worth an estimated $65 million. He has several different income streams that contribute to this figure. He of course earns royalties from his music, but beyond that, he has a variety of creative ventures that include a line of merchandise. Scott has also successfully partnered with many major brands.
The 31-year-old rapper has several impressive properties in his portfolio in addition to a pricey luxury car collection.
So let’s take a closer look at how Travis Scott’s impressive income and assets breakdown.
How much money does Travis Scott make with his music?
Obviously, the first place you would look would be the income from his music. In this regard, Travis Scott has undoubtedly cracked the streaming market.
Racking up over 38 million monthly listeners on Spotify alone, it is estimated that Travis Scott gets paid close to $7 million annually by the streaming platform. He likely receives comparable amounts from other streaming services such as Apple Music and Amazon Music. His most successful songs have been ‘Sicko Mode’ with 1.3 billion streams and ‘Goosebumps’ with 1.1 billion streams.
And we haven’t even begun to look at his staggering tour income. Scott’s ‘Astroworld’ tour was the top-grossing hip hop tour of 2019 at $53.5 million, making him one of the best-paid rappers in the world. Sadly, in 2021 one of his concerts took a tragic turn when 10 people died after being crushed in the crowd at his Houston show. Travis Scott (along with the event organizer Live Nation) is the target of several lawsuits arising from this dramatic incident, and he may be forced to pay large amounts of money to the victims.
Trivia Fact: During the pandemic, he participated in a critically acclaimed virtual show on the Battle Royale game Fortnite. The show drew more than 27 million players and brought in an estimated $20 million in revenue.
How Much Are Travis Scott’s Business Ventures Worth?
Scott is a savvy businessman and has been involved in several business ventures with well-known brands. Scott’s partnership with Nike would result in his signature sneaker line, ‘Cactus Jack’. It has been estimated that this successful partnership nets him $10 million per year.
An unlikely partnership with McDonald’s resulted in a Travis Scott celebrity happy meal that netted the rapper $5 million for the endorsement deal, and a further $15 million in merchandise sales.
Like most major artists, Scott runs a successful merch line that supports his tours. The line is often only available to be bought online or through major online retailers such as Amazon. To drive sales, his tours will often generate hype around this merchandise.
Another income stream for Scott is derived from trademark royalties. In 2018, Scott trademarked the brand ‘Astroworld’. This trademark would be very broad, encompassing everything from the music to an annual performance at the Houston Festival.
Following the success of his first trademarks, he would go on to trademark the phrase “Look Mom I Can Fly”, “No Bystanders” and “Wish You Were Here”.
Trivia Fact: A lawsuit has been filed against his agave seltzer brand, ‘CACTI’ for deceiving customers into thinking the drink was made with agave spirits when it only contained agave as a sweetener.
