How much is Ab-Soul worth? Ab-Soul is worth $500,000, according to Hiphop-Networth.com, and if that figure is accurate, it probably won’t be for long. The rising California rapper is getting ready to drop his third album, “These Days…” and given his association with Schoolboy Q and Kendrick Lamar — fellow members of his Black Hippy collective — he’s sure to sell more than a few copies. Even if he’s not yet a millionaire, Ab-Soul has come a long way since his early days. He was born Herbert Anthony Stevens IV on February 23, 1987, in Germany, where his father — an Army man — was stationed. Ab-Soul lived in Germany for the first four years of his life, and when his folks split up, he went with his mom to America, ultimately landing in Carson, California. While he began rapping as a teenager, it wasn’t until after high school graduation that he threw himself wholly into rhyming, and in 2009, he connected with his Black Hippy cohorts, paving the way for his eventual solo career.

Ab-Soul’s net worth presumably drives mostly from his first two LPs: “Longterm Mentality” (2011) and “Control System” (2012). Both came out on Top Dawg Entertainment, and while the former didn’t make much noise, at least in a commercial sense, the second landed at No. 9 on the Billboard Rap chart. What’s more, it crept into the upper echelon of the Billboard 200, topping out at No. 91. If the upward trajectory continues, “These Days…” will sell even better, and he might soon become a major hip-hop superstar.

How much is Ab-Soul worth compared to his Black Hippy group mates? Ab-Soul’s $500,000 puts him nowhere near Kendrick Lamar, who’s sitting on $10 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, and he’s also lagging behind Schoolboy Q, who’s worth $1 million, according to Hiphop-Networth.com. He might have the slight edge on Jay Rock, though, who’s said to be worth $300,000. Either way, “These Days…” could bump him into the seven-figure club, where this terrific lyricist belongs.
