How much is Schoolboy Q worth? Schoolboy Q is worth $1 million, according to, and if that number is correct, it means one of rap’s rising stars has joined the seven-figure club. He’s certainly come a long way from his roots. Born Quincey Matthew Hanley on October 26, 1986, in Wiesbaden, Germany, this son of an Army man moved with his mother to the States as a youngster, and after a brief stint in Texas, he landed in South Central Los Angeles, the city he’s now associated with. Schoolboy Q grew up loving sports, and he was initially more interested in football and basketball than he was in music. He played football for West Los Angeles College, and while he might have considered a pro career, he was arrested in the late ’00s, right around the time he got his girlfriend pregnant, and he suddenly needed a new plan. As LA Weekly reports, he’d once heard rapper 50 Cent advise dudes getting out of jail to get into the hip-hop game, and that’s what led him to music.

Schoolboy Q’s net worth derives from his decision to give rap a try, and he’s released three studio albums, “Setbacks” (2011), Habits & Contradictions” (2012), and “Oxymoron.” The latter of those, his major-label debut, hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 — an impressive feat that perhaps has something to do with Kendrick Lamar, a fellow member of the Black Hippy posse. Lamar discovered Schoolboy Q in 2008, when he heard the “Gansta & Soul” mixtape, and that led to their partnership. Ab-Soul and Jay Rock round out the Black Hippy crew, and while the group has yet to release a proper album, all four members have established themselves as solo stars, so when the eventual LP lands, it should give Schoolboy Q’s net worth a nice little boost.

How much is Schoolboy Q worth compared to the other Black Hippy rappers? He’s not doing quite as well as Kendrick, who’s sitting on a cool $10 million, according to, but he’s doing slightly better than Ab-Soul and Jay Rock, who are worth $500,000 and $300,000, respectively.
