How much is Childish Gambino worth? Childish Gambino is worth $4.5 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth, and if that seems like a lot of money for a guy still in his early 30s, consider this: His earnings stem from his work as both Gambino — his popular rap alter-ego — and as Donald Glover, the name he was given by his parents when he was born on September 25, 1983, on Edwards Air Force Base, California. When he was four years old, the future rapper, actor, and comedy writer moved with his family to Georgia, where he grew up interested in writing plays. He would go on to study precisely that at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, and in 2006, he graduated with a degree in dramatic writing. While still living in NYU’s dorms and working as a resident advisor, he landed a job writing on the hit NBC series “30 Rock,” and he later joined the cast of “Community.” Not content to simply be a TV star, Glover pursued a sideline as Childish Gambino, and in 2008, he released “Sick Boi,” his first in a series of mixtapes. The albums “Camp” (2011) and “Because the Internet” (2013) followed, and while neither were huge commercial smashes, they’ve no doubt contributed to Gambino’s net worth.

Rap fans asking, “How rich is Childish Gambino?” might be somewhat disappointed by the answer, as he’s not sitting on Dre, Diddy, or Jay Z money. That said, Childish Gambino is more of an underground MC, and singles like “3005” and “Sweatpants” probably weren’t destined to make him a musical superstar. But that’s OK, because Glover is working various angles and getting paid on all sides.

How much is Childish Gambino worth compared to other rappers with acting careers? Gambino only has a tenth of Ice T’s fortune, as the “Law & Order” star is worth $40 million, and he’s even further behind Eminem, who’s packing a cool $160 million. But Gambino is a true multi-talent with a long career ahead of him, and even if he never lands on any richest-rapper lists, it’s safe to say he won’t starve.
