How much is Big Sean worth? Big Sean is worth $2 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, and while that puts the California-born, Detroit-raised rhymer nowhere near the top of any “world’s richest rappers” lists, he’s only been in the game for a short time. Big Sean was born March 25, 1988, in Santa Monica, but he moved at the age of two to the Motor City, where he was raised by his mother and grandmother. His big break came in 2005, when he dropped by a local radio station and impressed Kanye West — there for an interview — with his freestyle flow. Two years later, Yeezy signed Sean to his GOOD Music imprint, and in 2011, the up-and-comer dropped his debut album, “Finally Famous.” His sophomore effort, “Hall of Fame,” arrived in 2013, and both LPs made the top 5 of the Billboard 200.

Big Sean’s net worth of $2 million is sure to rise, as he’s proven himself on both the pop and hip-hop charts. Since dropping his first mixtape in 2007, Sean has collaborated with the likes of Kid Cudi, Pharrell Williams, Nicki Minaj, Juicy J, Miguel, Lil Wayne, and Justin Bieber. Sean’s 2012 team-up with the Biebs, “As Long as You Love Me,” hit no. 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, undoubtedly adding a few dollars to Sean’s growing bank account. His biggest solo hit, “Dance (A$$),” reached no. 10 in 2011, thanks in part to guest Nicki Minaj.

How much is Big Sean worth compared to other famous hip-hop stars? He’s got nothing on Diddy, who tops the “richest rappers” list with $580 million, and if he wants to match Jay Z’s fortune, he’ll need to come up with another $480 million. Big Sean is closer to catching Kid Cudi, who’s worth $3.5 million, and Kid Capri, who checks in with $4 million. Of course, Sean’s getting ready to marry “Glee” star Naya Rivera, and his newfound status as one-half of a “power couple” could help his fortunes. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Rivera is sitting on a cool $1.4 million, so that puts the couple’s net worth at $3.4 million. Not exactly chump change — especially for two artists with bright futures.
